Nice project. Does it have Widow Maker rims?

your rims probably have a lock ring, which when removed allows the tire to come off--true widowmaker rims are actually joined in the middle of the rim and were prone to rust in the lock channell and will split open very easily and the tire will blow off. That being said the split rims can do the same if the lock has not been installed correctly--always put any of these rims in a cage to inflate safely--your truck looks like a winner-continue to show us progress you are making

by tray, do you mean platform or bed? my truck has a script bed and is steel, there were a lot of local mfg beds made completely out of wood, so I guess you could make up about anything you want. If you are just looking for some appropriate measurements I will mesure mine for you.

You will likely have trouble finding a tray or flatbead frame as Ford trucks had a frame width of 38 inches from 32 to 36 only. Model AA flatbeds will not work as AA frame rails are not parallel. From 37 on frame width was standardized for big trucks at 34 inches. I took measurements off a surviving flatbed, drew up plans and had a local shop with a ten foot metal brake make all the rails and cross pieces. A local welder stuck it all together. The deck is made of black stained wood with flat skid strips (this allows for wiggle room as planks do not have to be absolutely straight). It is a "reasonable facsimile" project but it looks good and trim. I am not good at posting pictures but a picture can be seen on the Trucks Gallery for 1932 on the Early Ford V8 website. I can send copies of my drawings if you wish.

Truck wheel bolt patterns changed in 34 to a bigger bolt pattern. Be sure to measure yours before buying a spare as they look similar unless viewed side by side.

Big Ford Trucks are COOL!

the wooden ones I have seen are made just like the metal one in the pictures, with the perimeter wood having brackets to hold the stakes protruding from this wood
