Hey JB nice job, and nice truck. I wonder if you could snap a pic of the
running board and where it meets the fender because I have a brand new
genuine Ford my father bought back then. I know it is NOT for 1948 & up.
Its not a pickup either like a 1 1/2 ton like yours I'll give it to ya.
That looks great. I was up at the family farm this weekend and went around looking for old wood. There is some really great stuff up there. I was talking about using some of the wood to make my all wood flatbed and my wife and mother in law looked at me like I was crazy. They just don't get it.
I need to get back up there and pull wood out of the hiding holes. I will need to take some pictures and get some advice from you wood experts. My nephew also showed me an approximately 4' by 8' board. It was cut using a 1929 Cat 60 driving the sawmill. My nephew wants to make a table out of it someday. It's been drying in the barn tacked up against a wall to keep it straight for a good 15 years or so.
Thanks guys! It's been a usual Monday at Mt. Pickett Woodworking. It's about 8 pm and I still have my son and his buddy resawing old fence boards for yuppie siding. Of course they don't show up 'til noon . They're using an 18" bandsaw that came from a WW 2 shipyard, but with ba modern motor. (Kinda like a lot of our trucks). I snuck over to a buddy's place for some diamond plate and now might do it in one long piece. I got some pics that I can post later tonight.
You post the best pics - love your fleet of old trucks. I like being able to see the saw marks in the wood in that close up pic. I think you also posted the best video I've ever seen on here! It was an old Powerwagon (?)lumbering up a steep hill - fantastic.
That was the '51 6x6 powerwagon with a hemi I bought last August and sold three days later. I could only afford to drive it for 3 days! For the last 27 years I Have attended the Puget Sound Antique Tractor and Machinery Association's show at Lynden, Wa. I took the dodge there and sold it for a 2500.00 profit, and I kept the 12,000 lb warn winch that was on the rear. Once I reached the island on my return I stopped at a guy's place who was selling a 1980 scout with a factory nissan 6 cyl turbo diesel. I remember when he bought new, and have coveted it since. It now has 74,000 miles. He had been asking 3500.00, but he took the 2500.00 I had in my pocket. One of my better transactions..... But now, as usual I'm hijacking my own thread. OK, I have some pics of the original subject.
