Default 1936 pickup cab corner question

Hello... I am looking for a little more help.

Can someone tell me if this is the way the rear cab corners were finished off On the bottom side from the factory? I cannot find any good pictures online.

Thanks

Some folks find if they email it to themselves, the pic is compressed along the way. Might help?

I am wondering if the 35-37 pickups had the bottom of the rear cab corners open like in the picture I posted.

I'd like to know this as well, since I might need some for my pickup.

I have a 1936 truck and I had the same question. Doesn’t seem right but that is how mine looks also.

The company that has the dies for that panel went out of business. People have tried to get the dies but no luck. I ended up fabbing the bottom of the one side myself

I was just thinking about this today. Someone has to know if this is how the corners were finished. I have a rusty ‘37 cab and it looks the same. I’m shaping the rear panel of my ‘36 cab now (might share that process if anyone is interested) and will be on the corners soon. Anybody know the answer to my original question?

The back of the cab underneath is open like your picture. The rockers are boxed but just past the door they open up. Those front and rear cab corners and rocker replacements were made by Northern. They made running boards as well. Too bad no one picked it up, they provided a valuable product.

Yes this is the same on my 35 truck they are open at back. I ended up having to make my own cab corner as no one has them at all. Most items I am finding for the 35-36 trucks is no longer produced.

I’ll be sure to share my results on shaping the rear panel.


To everyone else that answered my original question, thanks.

My truck is together, but as best I recall, the cab corners look exactly as your picture indicates. Lawson

Just saw a thread that Bitchen Products in AZ is now offering lower door skins for COE's. Seems like there is more of a market for cab corners than COE door skins. But then what do I know.

I agree 100%. I am now looking for cab corners for my pickup. On my corners, pretty much just the bead is salvageable but it would sure make things easier if I could just buy new ones. Someone has the tooling... I wonder why they arenít making them. I would think there is enough buyers out there for them. Certainly more than COE door skins.
