Let me introduce my "New" Winery truck

Greetings all!

I am a Southern California boy from birth and have been driving Fords all of my adult life. My first car was a Ford pickup and am happy to still be driving one. I found the forums here after I picked up a new project, 1951 Ford F4.

She's rough but has a lot of potential.
Click the image to open in full size.

I have plans to get her all fixed up and put her back to work for my winery, hauling grapes and barrels.
I'm on quite a budget as most of my money goes into building the winery so if anyone has parts that they think i might need, i would be willing to work out a full or partial trade for premium Paso Robles wines. Let me know!

I look forward to being a part of the forums here and i wanted to say thanks to you all for being so welcoming

You guys are cool

Thanks for joining us...glad to have you (and not just because you've got a winery...although that doesn't hurt ).

Looking forward to following your project.

OOHHHHHHHH Crap.
A Ford guy with a winery.
I'm starting to vibrate.
Welcome, thats a great truck.
Where is your winery east or west?
Do you have mature vines or planting new?
What varietals are you planning on?
What's the name of your place?
Did I say, nice truck?

So many questions, and none of them are straight answers... sorry...

My personal "winery" is really some wine that I am making at someone else's facility. I am the Assistant Winemaker for a small family operation here in town and work part time with three other winemakers. My wine is just something i'm starting on the side. I have lots of great connections with incredible growers and was offered some great fruit at a smoking deal. So i went with it.

My wines will be bottled and available in the spring. The San Diego area (which is home by the way, Escondido to be exact) will be one of my first target markets. I'll keep you all posted as my truck will probably figure prominently into the wine label

And as far as the 2010 vintage (my first) The wines were East side, from mature vines but not something that i would call "Old Vine"

I invite you all to come to Paso and let me know that you are coming, I'll go wine tasting with you and we'll go to a couple of great tiny little places that people don't normally find

Realized that I hadn't answered all the questions.

The name is top secret for now... will be revealed shortly.

Right now i am only producing a red blended table wine which is mainly Cabernet Franc and Zinfandel, but i am incredibly happy with it.

Have plans next year to make a Malbec, a Muscadet style white, and possibly a dry Portuguese blend.

Ha
Way to be.
You answered great.
I spend a fair amount of time up there as grape juice is a passion for myself and the wife.
Always looking for something new.
Good luck with your endeavor.
Will definitely drop by in the future.
Again, welcome to FTE you should find plenty of help here with your truck.

Let me ask here, as ya'll in the California section are more likely to have a useful answer for me than most of the guys in the classics forum. Any tips on good scrapyards to find old parts at? My ideal find would be a 337 flathead v8 out of a 51-52 F8 to put into my F4 and i need assorted trim pieces etc?

Thats gonna be a tough one.
I don't think scrapyards would keep anything that old and worth money to someone.
There are guys that will answer you back that may have leads for you.
They are out there but someone owns it so it'll be a barter or buy deal.
Try the appropriate motor forums and off course the correct year forum for your truck.
There are trucks that come up for sale that you can use as parts donors. Again though it'll take some digging.
I run up and down the state a bit so I'll keep it in the back of my very shallow mind.
Good hunting.

Do you know about places like Blue Oval Truck Parts and Truck Shop Orange Co.?

I get it now... how you guys run up your post tallys... post the same thing twice...

"oops, the computer did it to me"

I've only had the truck for a couple of weeks and have already made some good contacts, figured it wouldn't hurt to ask around.

Welcome wineguy! Glad to have you aboard (gives me an idea for a future get together). Love the patina on the truck; add tons of personality.

The patina was one of my favorite parts. I think i'll get it functional and drive it around like that for a while before i redo the body work
