You're doing a first rate job love your truck

Pop's '36 PU was originally that color. Did they call it Vineyard Green or something like that?

Jeff,

Thank you. The color I'm spraying this is vineyard green. If my research is correct this is a 35 color but it seemed to match the best to what I could find as original paint on it.

Very nice work - you're going to have one heck of a nice truck and will enjoy the heck out of taking it down the road. Keep after it!

Hi Jeremie, good talking to you yesterday. It looks like you are doing a great job based on the pictures you have posted here. I'm not certain that radiator splash pan is correct for your truck, but with all the folks here who have these trucks, someone should know which pan is correct, and could probably post a picture. The right side engine splash pan you have looks correct, all you need to find is a left side engine splash pan. Both L&R engine splash pans bolt to the underside of the top frame rail, and are the same as parts used on passenger cars. The steering wheel shown in your picture looks like a later model Ford wheel to me. Not sure a 35 - 36 horn, light switch rod will fit up correctly with that wheel. There is a repro 36 steering wheel available that would put you back to looking and working like the stock set up.
I would suggest keeping this thread alive with your updates, pictures, and questions. Many of us here can help you with info and parts necessary to get this truck done.

Something's WRONG here! That shop, everything in it, PLUS the workmanship on that chassis is just TOO CLEAN for words. I'm diggin' it ALL big time. Your brake lines turned-out SUPER nice. In fact, that whole chassis is SUPER nice. DD

Body work is getting closer to being done. I'm thankful that no metal had to be replaced as this body is very solid.

Very nice workmanship! The chassis you put together is a work of art.

Wow, great shape, as said love the patina. Consider just cleaning up and sealing and keep the look. Looks like you've got the jump on rebuilding the tranny and engine, nice job. beautiful PU. Love Grampa's Merc. too, real beauty. Looks like he really took pride in the build. didn't see any reference to your '36 having an engine update. Engine looks like an 8BA? https://www.google.com/search?q=1949...y-eMjMGRaX-vM:
I believe 1936 had an engine designation #68 21 stud 221 with cast in bell housing. http://www.vanpeltsales.com/FH_web/f...cs-85early.htm
Yours has no cast bell housing & newer distributor. I like the 8BA, better power a little easier to work on. Distributor not as cool as the Dizzy but much easier to play with.
Best of luck with a great looking Ride & welcome to the Barn.

Look's great. I replaced my steering wheel and am very happy with it.

I also put line x on the running boards, I new they would get scratched up using the truck and it would drive me crazier.

I see you have an early 36. Around March or May Ford began making the bed sides from a little bit thinner metal, and added a bed side stiffener on the sides of the bed at about the center of the wheel line or axel. This continued for several years.
