I don't have a pic at the moment, but you do have your light oriented properly in your picture. There is a "right" and a "left" light. They are made differently to fit the curve of the body. If both your lights are the same, that could be the problem.

Saw this panel for sale in Largo Florida. I think it's a 51 and it's FWD. Looks like a custom interior, with a van seat behind the front seats. It's a little rough and asking $15.000. Phone number; 727-433-4091

I'd say it's a 52 judging from the hood. Lots of things not stock like the bumpers, grill, fuel filler, running boards, mirrors, window trim, and wheels--but then I guess it's a custom. The body looks solid, but who knows what's under the primer. The engine, transmission, and interior better be pretty special to justify $15K.

1952 panel

Hi all, I have a 1952 panel truck. I have wanted one from the age of 15 but life and family happened and it always seemed to be at the bottom of the list. Well a few years ago one Thursday evening I stumbled across an internet advert for a panel truck in Mount Pleasant North Carolina. I text a buddy who just happens to live nearby and two days later I owned the truck. Got it shipped back to the UK and stored it until September last year. The truck came full of spares and new rubber seals and chrome. It had a crown Vic front end, engine / trans, rear axel, seats and instruments. The fitment of the engine was a little agricultural and the front suspension was welded 2" out of alignment . I cut the engine and front end out, fitted a Jaguar front clip (RHD) and installed a Landrover Discovery TD5 engine mates to a six speed manual Getrag gearbox. It's going to be my daily driver and shop truck for my business. I think you guys call it Dark side? I don't have much choice as during its life the truck has lost most of the original running gear so I am putting in more modern engineering but retaining the original look although quite a bit lower. The plan is when it's done is to take it to Silverstone for a track day.

Tony

Hi Tony, welcome to FTE the best Ford Truck Forum on the world wide Web! We have quite a few Brits here at FTE. Thanks for the story of your truck. But now you need to show us pictures!

I know there are many words you use "over there" that have different meanings than here. As George Bernard Shaw said "England and America, two countries separated by a common language." What did you mean that "the engine was fitment was a bit agricultural."

Hi Abe, what I mean is without being cruel to whoever fitted the engine, it could have been fitted in a more aesthetically pleasing way 😀
also it had a 116" wheelbase, the crown Vic front suspension had been welded on too far forwards. I have some pictures of it in the p o garage in N C before I set about it with the plasma cutter. I have made new front chassis sections, a new bulkhead, transmission tunnel and floor panels in the last few months.

I think he was referring to Pennsylvania.
