Less than 1 year, but hope to hang on to this one. I've owned a 1939 Ford Pickup, a 1935 Ford Pickup and a 1969 Triumph TR6. Others not worth mentioning.

54 years if I calculated correctly. I was 13 years old when I purch asked my 1939 Ford Coupe.

It has sat for many years and just started working on it with my 12 and 13 year old grandchildren

1937 Ford stake pickup. My grandfather got it for $75.00. It's been in our family since 1957. It was a basket case for over 30 years. It was stored in 2 garages and moved twice. Restored last year. My grandfather taught me to drive in it in the early 60s.

My 1938 Ford Pickup belonged to the family since before I was born, but it became mine in 1986. I never thought to ask when they bought it and now they are all gone so I will never know. If family ownership counts then longer than my 64 years, but if my ownership counts then 29 years. Either way I love that old truck, I learned to drive in it.

My Dad had my '36 PU since the mid 50's, I got my '42 in the mid 90's.
My Dad gave the '36 to the neighbor for "rent" when he stayed at his place in the Bay Area welding in the ship yards, actually gave him 2 '36 PU's.
Anyways, in the late '70's the neighbor had used the best parts of the two to make one for his son, but the guy doing the work kept stealing from him (seem the guy's brother had a '36 PU as well)...the last straw for the neighbor was when the went to test run the '36 in the driveway...it had a SBC and Muncie 4speed in it at the time...

Seems it was real easy to slide the gear shift around..on a freshly rebuilt tranny....they pulled the tranny...odd, it was pretty light, the guy doing the work pulled all the gears/bears/etc out of it, cluged up something for an output shaft...and split.

The neighbor called me and said "Mike, you want them 2 '36 PU's?"...I said "sure",

He said "Then get your @ss down here and get them"!!

Anyways, thought I'd share that.

I have a Farmall Cub, back in West Virginia, it looks about like yours. I hear that those front wheel weights are fairly scarce.
