There's a company that advertises in Hemmings (and probably other places)
that makes a complete fiberglass body for a 1936 pickup that they say can
be used on a late model Ranger chassis as well as a stock/reproduction frame.

For all those wondering why ??
I did not have the original frame when I began building my 36 Street Rod PU
I looked at aftermarket frames, but sorry to say I haven't hit the lotto
I was able to pick up the S-10 frame for $200
it came complete with front suspension, power brakes, and the gas tank
yes I did have to create new motor mounts ( for a 302) as well as a
transmission crossmember, the cab fit fine once I created some body mounts.
I did have to move the Gas tank back about 3-4 inches as well as the rear
I can eventually Slam the front end as Bell Tech offers dropped spindles and
such for the S-10
you do lose depth in the bed, but i don't plan on doing a lot of hauling :>)
I love the body lines of the early ford trucks, I think that's what most of
us are after, as I don't see many people just driving frames down the road.
The was the easiest and most economical way I could get a 1936 on the roa 1936 on 1936 on I had to start with was a cab)
I do have a picture if anyone would like to see it just send me an email
Thanks to all those who have shown interest !!
