Re: What is this truck?

Did the 1940 Australian Big Trucks have a cowl vent? I canít tell from your photos. That might explain the use of 1/4 windows on trucks made in Australia.

Re: 35 Ford Bread truck

GARY. That truck is a JEWEL! It looks like the bed is metal skinned over a wood frame. Right up your alley to make it right. The backstory is how it got to ID from NY and what its been doing...

Re: Pictures, how to post?

Very important to have the photos reduced in size to 800X600 pixels before attempting to attach them or you won’t be able to upload them to the Barn. I use a Photoshop edit program, but there are...

Re: Ford T8D-1 shift pattern

The 4 Speed shift pattern in the Tonner looks like this Reverse is all the way to the right and down. To put it into reverse you have to lift the lever up on the shift arm.

Re: 1938 Tonner Bed Floor Question

I don't know how the factory painted the bed on your 38 Tonner, but I can offer some thoughts on what they did on my 40 Tonner. This truck was a one owner low mileage vehicle when it came to me so I...
