As with many projects, dreams and reality often follow a different path. Our "newest" project has been patiently waiting for some attention for 25 years. As a young lad of just 15, and with help from my father, we hauled home the remains of a 1933 Ford Commercial truck back to the family farm. After serving as a delivery truck for Coca-Cola in a former-life, it had been disassembled and initial preparations had begun for a Pro Street treatment by the previous owner.
At the time, we had plans for a fairly simple build. Graft the rear frame from a modern, leaf-sprung truck in place of the missing rear clip and utilize a dropped axle up front; secure a flathead motor and refresh with period-correct speed parts.
