friend and i picked up a new project, 1934 ford pickup.
331 caddy v8 mated to a hydramatic auto tranny.
should be a fun project. the plan is to do a way with the rat rod look and make it more of a street rod.
crappy cell phone pictures
well my friend bought it...im just doing most of the work and teaching him so he can do it too. he payed $6250 for it. practically no rust...just a little around the visor and a few tiny spots.
sweet deal... i was just wondering because my dad has been looking for a '30-'34 ford tudor sedan/coupe for a project.this isnt his car as he doesnt have one yet but this is the style he wants.. he already has a 5.0L, diffs, dash, running gear, etc. we cant find any thats less than like 10,000 bucks..
i've always wanted a '32 ford deuce coupe that i can tear apart and rebuild.. guess i gotta wait till i get my own shop!!! hahaha
1934 original cab
331 caddy motor
1957 chev rearend
original 1934 radiator shell
remote door poppers
1990s minivan seat - recovered by jimmy f of california
new door windows and mechanisms
aftermarket blinkers and heater (heater still in box - not installed)
keg gas tank
all gauges and lights work and are functional
titled and registered as 1934 ford pickup
so we got the body about as good as we were going to get it. so we began priming the truck. My friend who owns and is funding the project wants to paint it white...im still argueeing with him that white wont look right. im using a mac spray gun and we picked up a car port and modified it a little to make a decent paint booth. anyways on to the pictures.
the ugly tail lights and stupid scoop on the carb are going to be taken off as soon as we have the parts to replace them, im attempting to convince him that some recessed led tail lights would loook really goood. and all the red will eventualy be painted black, and it will have white walls in the future
