Default 38/39 Ford truck

Hey all.
I picked up an old farm relic out by Regina Saskatchewan last year and started a restore/hotrod project. It gets kinda slow for me during the fall and I've always wanted a '30's car. I plan on making it into a daily driver for my business. I have the frame finished with new front and rear suspension, the engine mounted, and the cab blasted and patched. I just sold an old tractor I had and used the funds to get myself a new box so there's a whole lot less mucking around with that now. This last week I've been able to get back at it again and cleaned up almost all the pieces apart from the hood. I built my own sandblasting pot and use three compressors to feed it. My next project is to learn how to do body work descent enough to get by. I have a friend that used to do it and he said he'd help out - thankfully. I hope to be driving it in the next one or two years but we'll see as the project continues.

Yup. Not too bad for a farm truck. They are usually shot all to hell. There were four evenly spaced holes on the drivers running board that were similar. I figure the farmer was attaching a tool box and did not have the right sized drill bit so he just used a gun.
