    Default 1940 Ford Truck

    I picked up a '40 Ford pickup cab today in pretty rough shape but it's good enough for what I want to do with it. It was originally a Oregon State College ( now Oregon State University) campus truck for there forestry program. Plans are to chop it about 6", channel it 3" over a custom frame, built 302 with a 4 gear and a 9" rear with posi.

    Started the chop, decided to go with 5" instead of 6", the windshield will be around 5 1/2" tall. Every time I take pictures with my phone they are always fucking blurry, no matter how still I hold it...

    I wouldn't call myself brave, stock is cock so chop or die! Got the roof spliced and set it up so I can get an idea of what it'll look like, hopefully I can get it tacked together tomorrow.

    Chopping a top is a lot of fucking work apparently. For how many hours I have into it so far I probably could of scratch built a hardtail frame. Spent all day fitting, grinding, beating and welding, just need to weld a strip in the center and chop the doors down.

    Finished welding the roof and pillars and started doing body work to straighten out the roof a bit. Turns out this truck once belonged to a man named George Peavy, he was the dean of Oregon State College (now Oregon State University) back in the day and then was the mayor of Corvallis. It's pretty cool to know that this cab has some history behind it. http://www.oregonencyclopedia.org/en..._w_1869_1951_/

    I don't think it turned out too bad considering it's my first chop, also picked up a front end off a '50 F1 pickup today.

    NASA approved door lock mechs with .38 spcl inlays. I've driven my share of old cars and have had a few doors fly open from hitting a bump in the road, not the funnest thing to have happen when your doing 70mph down the highway so I made these.

    The biggest swap meet in the Northwest is this weekend and opened today so I dipped out of school a little early to check it out. Walked 8.7 miles according to the gps on my phone but was totally worth it. I ended up with a 9" Ford rear end out of a F100 in pretty nice shape and a set of old school pie crust slicks on a set of Ford steelies. I'm getting up early tomorrow and heading back to see what else I can find.





    Made this glove box cover tonight

    Went back to the swap today and picked up a set of almost NOS goodyear tires that are pretty rad and a pair of 15" steelies. I just need to find some leaf springs so I can figure out the suspension and bust out a frame. My left knee is fucked up, walked 15 miles today.
