Subject: only fordson pick-up fan in the world.

Hello everyone:
My name is Rafael and I writing from Cali Colombia. My problem is that I
have 2 Fordson pick-ups for restauration but no one in this country
knows any thing about this trucks.
I'm searching since one year ago by internet for at least one picture
but by now I`m loosing the impulse. The only thing that I founded is at
the Ford history were they said that Fordson pick-up truck was built
arround 1932 and 1934.
This trucks doesn`t have any plate or tag, only one have registration
and say Fordson 1951, I don`t know if this information is real.
All bearigs, the brake and clutch pedals, the brake drums, the chasis
and many other parts has engraved the Ford logo and some of theme made
in Ingland.
I hope you guys understand my poor english and some one find some thing
that help me to rebuilt this beautys.
You guys can write to me at aserquim
Thanks and God Bless you all.

I know the conversation has moved on but one question. The 46 has standard
3.78 and optional 4.11 gearing. How would one obtain 3:54 or 3.25? Hot rod
supply, donor car,...?
