Help!
I just arrived on list to gain help and wisdom.
My brother and I are looking to purchase a late 30's FlatHead V-8 P/U.
It appears sound, has not been hot-rodded, so it looks fairly stock.
The owner tells us the engine runs, but does need to be rebuilt.
We are looking at rebuilding to stock condition, as a driver,
not daily perhaps, but not a show truck.
Are there any areas of the vehicle we should REALLY be looking
at for signs of illness and trouble? It has been primered over all,
but does not appear to have active rust, are their certain areas that
hold rust more than others?
Any idea on pricing or pricing guides?
What publications will help us in the purchase process & with
restoration? I've seen a book on rebuilding the FlatHead V-8,
So that looks good... Any help is greatly appreciated.
Sorry for all the "newbie" questions, but we've been Mustang
& Explorer owners...

Be certain to carefully examine the main frame rails especially in the area
between the rear tire and the back of cab. Rust developes where the X -
member frame and the outer frame rails are joined together. Also the lower
rear corners of the cab, behind the door.

The old cars price guide shows a 37 thru 39 model pick-up in restorable
condition to be worth $1550 to $1750.

Fenders, particularly rear fenders. Fiberglass reproductions are available,
but not steel.
