I have recently become an owner of a 1935 Ford Truck. In has not been
driven in over 15 years, and sparingly in the last 50 years. It ran
when it was put away 15 years ago but who knows now. Is has always been
an Arizona car so the body is rust free. My question is, about how much
is it worth and what can you do with a truck this old?

Gee Joe, just wen I thought I was the only person on the pre 48 list, there
you are with deep philosophical questions. The truck is worth exactly what
someone would pay for it and not one cent more. You can price it at whatever
you want, but the value doesn't change. Right person in the right place,
it's worth a lot. To me 'way up here in the northeast, not worth cold spit.
What can you do with it? Anything you want. Drop in a Chevy big block blower
motor, maybe restore it better than new, just fill the thing with fresh gas,
new oil and drive it 'till it drops. The real beauty of being a car nut is
the freedom of expression; nobody but you has to like your stuff.
(PS helpful hint when writing on this list don't say "Chevy", say "C****" or
someone will get mad.)

I agree with 47Fred. It's worth what someone is willing to pay for it.
However, to get an idea of what people think it's worth, you can go to
the traderonline.com hompage and see what other people think the 35
Fords they own are worth.

You can do anything you want to it. There are a plethora of
reproduction parts places as well as original hot rod places to change
engines or hop the one you have up. Personally I like the original hot
rod style. Nothing like a hot cam, multiple carbs, and some headers
with smithy mufflers to make the original flathead just bark.

Current progress:

Stock cam. 2 Stromberg 97's (waiting for the polished manifold and warmer
weather to install). Fenton headers, but stainless steel (not Smithy)
mufflers. Well, even Ted Williams never batted .500 *grin*
