It's amazing how many folks have opinions without actual experience. I put a 302 Ford in my 1934 pickup. I did NOT cut the firewall. I even used the mechanical fan. The secret was a Snow-White...

Re: Options for '34 P/U rear bumpers

David is correct about the rear bumpers on 1933-34 panel deliveries. I bought an assembly at the old Harrah's swapmeet in the 1970s. I installed it on my pickup and immediately realized it was too...
