Yes, I agree. Great picture. Dave, I'm in the same boat with you, no picture of my truck when it was on Grandpa's farm. All but one of my uncles and aunts have died except one, my Uncle Abe. I was hoping that my cousins would find old photos of the truck in their parents stuff. There are lots of pictures of us working in the tobacco field, and lots of Grandpa's John Deere's and before that the horses he was so proud of and plenty of his Ayrshires. But no pics of the old Ford truck.

Seems guys will let the wives shop and purchase if they can look over the truck.
The truck has a little over 22,000 miles on it and almost all original.

I have a nice exhaust manifold set that look almost right. I think they are for the 41 - 46 ford V-8. I bought them by mistake. I believe they would fit on your truck and work except that a store bought exhaust pipe would not fit them both at the same time. Dual exhaust or custom fitted exhaust pipe would work. Anyway if you are interested let me know. Patrick


Ford flathead V-8

Definitely interested if I can be sure they will work. I'm a woodworker not a mechanic. Guy that does my mechanic work does custom exhausts so that wouldn't be a problem. Just need to figure out if they will fit. thanks . mike

Those aren't the right ones. They're off something much earlier. Red's Vintage Parts lists used manifolds that would work on your truck. What's wrong with the ones you have? I've never had any problems with them other than stripped or broken off studs, those can usually be "fixed" without too much problem. - Bob

Is only one of yours bad, OP? The one above with the sticker on it (driver's side) looks like it would work, the other appears to point off to the side too much (should point down). But as stated, it may not align exactly with a stock exhaust pipe.

Yes I looked at it today. pass side needs to come out and straight down. Doesn't look like enough room to make the turn to point it down with fittings.
Both are in pretty bad shape

I fouled up on that - it's Red's Vintage Parts that has the manifolds. You can substitute 21A ('42-'48') manifolds for the 7RT's. The only difference is a slight amount in the outlet size. - Bob

The driver side outlet is straight down and the passenger side outlet is at an angle.

Here's item numbers for manifold sets that are on eBay. Both may have issues with the studs. I believe these are 7RT's: 332620460357 and these are 21A's: 282930011317 - The studs are too long on the 21A's but look like they might be easier to change out than on the other set. Good luck! - Bob
