1941 Ford Pickup

1941 Ford Pickup

I purchased this 1941 Ford Pickup from a neighbor and even though it looks rough the body is not in bad shape. I am having a frame kit made to put it on a Chevrolet S10 Frame. It will be a great street rod when it is done. This is going to be a long term project.

I am not sure yet what I am going to do with the bed. The fenders and floor are missing. I may find a substitute bed.

I picked this truck up at an auction in Southeastern Nebraska. The project has been started by the previous owner. The top has been chopped 2 1/2 inches, the Ford 9″ rear axel has been narrowed to accommodate the wide tires. The engine is a 454 Chevrolet Big Block that runs.

I will be working on the clean up of the body, engine and frame. The bed is not in the picture and will have to be “tubbed” to fit the rear wheels.  The plan is to pull the body from the frame and update the front and rear suspension systems. The metal is in very good shape and is mostly new but there is no interior so a lot of work needs to be done to get it street ready.
