1938 Ford Other Pickups 1/2 ton short wheel base Rat Rod
Hi There, have decided to sell my truck. I finished this truck 6 years ago and have driven it about 15,000 miles since then. I am going to start a new project and need more room, o this one has to go. It runs good and the brakes work fine. I built this truck with parts from pre 1959 vehicles except for some gauges and such. It does get attention but for me it is a daily driver to work and such. It needs some work so you may want to take that into consideration. I have driven it to Ohio, llinois and Kentucky, ut I live dangerously. Please look at all of the photos before you ask questions. It is sold as is where is. If you want it shipped I'll drive to the nearest transport location for the pick up. The wheels are Kelsey Hayes wire spoke painted Porsche Red, ear tires are 750- 16 bias ply and fronts are 205-70-16 radials. The tires will need to be replaced in the next year or so. Some glass is cracked. I don't know what the headlights are? but they look great and work good. Tail lights are old and have real red glass lens's. The radiator was cleaned and repaired before installed. Engine is all standard/ stock and rebuilt, ncluding starter and Holley carburetor. Oil bath air cleaner. Ford 3 speed manual transmission (rebuilt) with a aftermarket floor mounted shifter. Custom lake headers that have baffles in them, ut they are stillloud. Model A grill shell. Banjo Steering wheel, nd original steering column and gear box. Stewart Warner "Green Line" gauges. Seat is out of a 99 Ford Windstar. Ford 8" rear end with 3.00-1 gears, pen carrier and 28 spline axles. Original drum brakes. Bed was shortened about a foot. Harwood poly fuel cell, 2 Gallons. Electrical is vary basic and was converted to 12 volt and is still a generator system. 32 Amp output. Has an electric back up fuel pump but works off of the mechanical pump on the engine. Windows roll up and down but the tracks need to be replaced. Windshield cranks out and the cowl vent works. Squeaksand rattles. This is a true rat rod not some trailer queen. I express no warranty of any kind with this truck because it is over 77 years old. Please ask any questions before bidding. If you are more than 50 miles from Indianapolis I would recommend trailering it until you check it all out and make sure that you are OK with how it was all assembled. I have the title in my name and it is for this 1938 Ford truck. This truck is for sale locally and could be pulled off Ebay at any time if I sell it throughanothermeans. You are welcome to come by and look it over before bidding. Please look at the photos and ask any questions.
