I really appreciate the steel bed. Not too many restored properly like that.
Kudos!

Exactly my feelings also.

I see so many high end restorations done where they do the bed floor in wood. To me that takes away from the looks of these trucks and to me, that should dampen the selling price. But it doesn't seem too.

Stands out as very wrong when viewing these pickups '35-'36 and even the '37's.

Beautiful truck! Not to nit-pick but I think the rear bumper is installed upside down.

Adam is right... about the rear bumper! Didn't catch that at first! I don't know how we missed that.

Easy to remedy Not a big deal and sure not taking away from your '36...she is a beauty. If you ever want to sell it I know a good home it can go to!!
