A quick count shows 20 confirmed purchases. How many pages is it? How many color?

I would be interested in a hard copy book or digital copy. This kind of compilation would be invaluable. Q

The topic of this book came up at some previous EFV-8 Club National Meets, and I'm thinking this would be a good topic for further discussion at the clubs Grand National Meet in Dearborn MI this June.

Here's a thought that benefits the entire V-8 Club. Have Mr.Cox and Mr. Grayson write bi-monthly articles in the V-8 Times concerning these trucks. They can use their gathered material and every member benefits from the knowledge. All they need to do is talk to V-8 Times Editor Jerry Windle about printing the material and the cost is built right into the subscription of the V-8 Times.
That idea might have some merit, but not sure I want to join that group in order to get the news letter. I think the actual book is preferable to me.

I, also, buy a lot of books on makes I don't own, just to have the info on a car or truck I like. While Ford is not my 1st brand of choice, I buy books on Fords.

Precious little exists on these trucks in the way of detail, yet nearly every passenger vehicle has books ad nauseum covering all details to the last screw or pin.

I am just trying my very best to put this truck together in as correct a fashion as possible, and if someone has already accrued the info I need, why am I reinventing the wheel here? Plus, any small info I can find, even here on the board, there is ALWAYS a differing opinion as to what was correct, what finish, etc. We need a definitive "Bible", if you will, of what's what.

So until something of substance exists on these trucks, don't anyone ever tell me something ain't correct on my truck; because 99.999% of us don't know for sure.

Seems to me that the one club whose entire existence is to comb thru Fords old records in a quest to preserve the early V8 info, is not doing their job.

Have two 1936 Pickups. Hope the book gets published especially after all of the time spent on getting it together! Will definitely purchase one!

I’d presume many on this thread aren’t V-8 Club members. The V-8 Times is NOT a newsletter, but a top notch magazine. The Magazine alone makes it worthwhile to join the club!
Just as TJ stated articles submitted by the authors for use in the V-8 Times is a very easy way to address common questions and and things related to these pickups. I have truthfully learned more in the hobby from V-8 Times articles than anything else.

Since 3-29-18 when this thread was re-opened,
Mr. Cox and Mr. Grayson haven't given any response.
Maybe some input from either of them would be useful.

I too was hoping they would engage in discussions as to how their book could be brought to fruition, but likely they have moved on and just want it behind them. Can't blame them.

If it were me who'd been hung out to dry, I would avenge my good honor by publishing it myself. As I said, Amazon has changed the publishing world, and a plethora of "amateur" authors are going that route and having great success. It is just an alternative I had hoped they might have availed themselves of as a way of finishing their quest.

Carbroke is absolutely right. They don't need the EFV-8 Club to bring that book to print. Those days are gone. Go out and do it yourself.

As I said in an earlier post I just bought a softbound book published this year solely on the '69 Mach 1 Mustang, and it is excellent. Lots of information and color pictures. And it really wasn't very expensive anyway.

I really appreciate people who go to the work to put this together.

Maybe, just maybe, it wasn't/isn't anywhere near print ready, hence the silence from those in the know.

I don't believe the National club has any agenda either. I would talk with some of the authors of other restoration books to get their read> I would not give up. There is likely great interest in such a publication besides the EFV8 Club.

If everyone who expressed interest in this book, and I think it an important book, committed $50.00 - $100 for their pre-paid copy I'm sure that the authors could reach their publishing-cost target. They are both long-term reliable figures in our Ford fraternity and deserve to be supported. I'd be down for a couple of copies on that basis. Perhaps they can give us a ball-park figure of what they need to finish the job. These days printing & pre-press costs are down, and just spiral bind it. Can't wait to see it! Good luck!
