Default 32 BB tow truck appears on FTE

Just thought our 32 big truck guys might appreciate this. I am on FTE (Ford Truck Enthusiasts) as well as the 'barn. OK, the barn wins out every time as the FTE guys like a volare front clip etc from time to time. Can't do a link but you can probably see it. It's a time capsule, at least for now..........

Gol Dangit you are correct. I have had a 32 BB and later a 34 bb and the 34 was the first year of a full floating rear axle, and this does have a full floater like every big truck since. But it is one good looking truck...

GB,
I am not a expert at all picking out the years. But when looking at the yellow wrecker I noticed V8 hood badges, which I understand would have made it a rare bird as a 32.
I have to check in over on FTE too. I see you there. Its a good forum but the Ford Barn is way better for details/ information, on our older trucks.
I was thinking of you when I was doing some running board repairs yesterday. As I put the final patina on, your comments were guiding me!

pete,
That wrecker from the UK is very nice too! looks like headlights have been changed?
Regards,
Chris

The exterior characteristic of the cab that is unique to the '34 version is the extra stamped molding on the back panel to accommodate the higher seat back cushion inside the cab.
