That 34 would be great on a Ranger chassis Its about 10 yrs out, but that is gonna be my next Ranger. 34-40 Fords were the prettiest. The '36 coupe being best.

My brother put a set of later model axles on a 34 sedan delivery to convert it to juice brakes. It then was painted a brilliant yellow and sat in Roy Davis' front yard yard for 20 yrs. Long gone now

I need more sleep.
I have a love hate relationship with old cars sitting around.
I love them because I wonder where they've been and what they've done.
I hate them because people let them sit there and rot.

Heh, people around here seem to have this same thing.

During the two years that we have lived here my wife has had at least half a dozen people come up and knock on the door while I was at work asking if we were interested in selling my truck.

They all got laughed at and sent away.

Wow, looks like the rig I learned to drive in...we had to literally put a plow horse to it the first time and drag it into town for parts...but it started and we drove it back home. No lift kit, 33 tires, toolboxes, or subboxes...just a hand crank that would break your knuckles if you weren't quik enough.

Yah, I drove past a 1940 something Dodge 2 ton flatbed for 40 + yrs. One day this summer, I drove by and it was gone. A buddy of mine has his wife driving around In a ~2000 Ranger with a 46 Dodge truck cab on it. :D

Flashback! My '41 pickup had a handcrank...I used it for a year when my battery was took shot to turn the engine over....the truck nearly ran over me early one morning when I forgot to put it in nuetral before cranking it!
