Default Re: 1936 Truck restoration

My project has come to an end and I wanted to thank everyone for all the help. Without the help from many people on this forum I would have been wandering aimlessly in my shop! I also wanted to say Thanks to Joe from Joes antique ford parts, Mac Van Pelt, Roy Nacewitz, all who answered may questions from me!

Beautiful truck... well done. I am just starting on my ‘36 pickup so I’m sure your posts will help me with my restoration.

Love it!......and nice job too. The "long term pain" pays of when the job is done doesn't it? Been there done that.

Great inspiration, I have most of a basket case 36 pickup sitting and waiting. I am starting on a rebuild of a 53 Merc flathead, hopefully I will live long enough to see one or both of the projects on the road.

1stFord, your '36 pickup is truly outstanding!

I love it

(From the owner of a '36 PU who is very partial to the '35-'36 Ford pickups and ton and a half's! Probably one of the sharpest trucks Ford ever built.)

This has been really fun to watch, but quite different than my flathead trucks so I never have anything to contribute except for this highly enthusiastic two thumbs up. What I'm saying is that If I saw you out tooling around in this beautiful rig I wouldn;t give you the usual, well deserved 'thumbs up' but would let go of the wheel and give you two! Well done!

Four years... where has the time gone? You should be very proud. And, I'm sure that your grandpa would be especially proud of you and what you have done with his pickup. Needless to say, I'm with the 'thumbs-up' folks here. It's a beauty.
