Sorry, but modern photos of restored trucks should not be in THIS thread in my opinion.
Feel free to start another thread with those pics.....I would contribute to that.
If we can't find anymore vintage pics with Fords, I'd rather see just old photos of general interest.
But again, I'm not a Mod, so I can only make suggestions.....

I have a friend that has been interested in old trucks as long as I have, maybe 40+ years. Sometimes I share issues of vintage trucks magazine with him. He calls the before and after photos in the magazine "Before I ruined it, After I ruined it" photos. Let's just say when I get new boots or new work pants, I just feel li9ke I'm not myself with everything all stiff and perfect. I prefer my trucks broken in. And I prefer my favorite photos of old trucks the same way.... In their work clothes. This is such a circular argument, because I am not stupid, I understand why many folks want to do a perfect restoration, and have something they dragged out of the woods and made beautiful. This is a great hobby and we can do it any way we want. For this thread, I vote vintage photos, taken of trucks when they were in everyday use to make money for their owners!

Bonus points if you know the name of the dog but double points if you know the brand of the car.

I think the “Divco” misnomer comes from the “high clearance” or “milk truck” label given to the 18” x 3.62” wide, 5 x 10.25” pattern (1936-1939) K-H 20988/Ford SE78 1015 and 5 x 5.50” K-H 23278/Ford 01AS 1015A (1940-1947). These are the salt flats wheels that are so highly valued. Stu
Thanks Stu. I guess most of what I thought I knew, I read on the HAMB. Mostly I was just trying to stretch the subject into Ford related,lol. I was aware of some very rare optional Ford high clearance optional wheels, saw a set bring $4000 on ebay once.

Bridge over the Tacoma Narrows was known as "Galloping Gertie." A slight breeze caused the bridge to sway.

Just after this pic was taken, the bridge collapsed.

The dogs name was Tubby, the car might be a Plymouth.

Vintage pictures of trucks in their natural habitat, i.e. working is what this thread is all about. The restored, prettied-up versions belong elsewhere.

Not the 47 and under era, but the woodie in this old pic is sitting on a set of the 18” “high clearance” wheels. They look gawd awful big in the small half ton fender openings. Stu
