1934 Ford Other PickupsHi All,
I bought this truck when I was 13 years old, with the help of Keith and Vern Tardel, I put it back on the road when I was 16 and drove it through high school. I put it in the barn and went off to college.
About 9 years ago, I pulled it out and started to rebuild it the way that I envisioned in my mind. Life has changed for me, it's time to let it go and find a new home for my truck, here are the specifics:
Title: Good Title in California - currently non-op on original 1934 CA plates
Frame: Original 1934 Pickup Frame with stamped VIN # on driver's rail, the framed has been boxed using Ionia boxing plates, a chassis engineering cross member kit for the center, pete and jakes ladder bars for the rear and stock cross member in the front, power boosted master cylinder mounted under the floor, F100 steering box modified by Vern.
Front Suspension: Posies super slider, superbell 4" dropped axle with holes, '46 (i think) split bones, disc brakes, custom shock mount/fender braces, disc brakes
Rear Suspension/Axle: Pete and Jakes ladder bar with panhard rod, bilstein coilovers, Halibrand quick change rear axle, Ford SVO disc brakes with emergency brake built in
Body: I had Chris at Salt Flats Speed Shop in Utah do the rust repair on the cab, front fenders and grill. He smoothed the dents from the roof and added new rain rails, replaced the back of the cab, the back cab corners, the front quarter panels on each side of the cab, and lastly the cab floor. The cab was then primed with epoxy primer to stop any rust. You can see Chris' work on his website where he made a 32 vicky. The metal work is top notch w/o any filler used anywhere. My opening bid price is much less than what the metal work cost
Doors: Two original doors included, Chris replaced the door panels on both and fixed damage to the hinge side of the door frame, both doors are complete with latches/window cranks and top caps
Hood: Good condition hood included
Front Fenders: I have two sets of front fenders, 1 set that Chris repaired and smoothed and a second set that originally came with the truck, this second set have some damage to the front of the fender and some bead damage.
Rear Fenders: as with most pickups - in really bad shape, the dents have been smoothed out, but I planned on replacing them with a new pair. I also have been told that one of the fenders is a 32 roadster fender, but I'm not sure
Running Boards: original set included - a little thin in places, I planed on buying a replacement set
Grill: Good condition, rust repair along the lower edge of the grill by Chris.
Drivetrain: Currently installed is a 302 roller motor and a AOD transmission with a floor mounted shifter - no driveshaft, the engine includes a vintage air front runner system and a vintage air heater/AC mini III unit.
Bed: I have 2 complete bed units, one that is rusty in the stake pockets and generally used, the other is relatively rust free but the sides of the bed have dents and someone welded some angle iron to the front edge of the bed to strengthen it
There are a lot of other parts included with the truck, a new windshield frame, speedway engineering wiring kit, door handles/window winders, new seat springs upholstered in 1988 Ford grey cloth, seat riser made from 1T in cab gas tank, headlights, tail lights etc...

I hate to think how much I have invested in parts and metal work. This is a great project to start with as all the difficult and expensive metal work has been completed.
