I would like to know where i can get plans to build my own wood pick-up box for my 1919 roadster. any help would be great....thanks
Some nice for sale pickup beds at Hershey this year, these are made by Ken Reamer of Millmont, PA, [email firstname.lastname@example.org] The one in front is made of walnut! Beautiful work, all the wood is hand sawed from trees felled by Ken.
Ken also made all the hardware for these beds, out of stainless steel....pretty work.
No commercial, and no interest in this other than info pertaining to this thread, but when asked, Ken said I could list his email for anyone interested.
Nice work, I could have one of those all dinged up with the first load of junk I hauled. Edward, there was a thread a couple months ago on this same subject, if you search you can find a bunch more info. Here is a batch of pics I posted then of a commercial body with some cast parts. The one with the cast pieces was on an Overland but no reason you couldn't make similar for a Ford. I'm saving this one for a little pickup I'm trying to get started working on. The other pics--the ones of a pretty complete box looks homemade. A nice set of irons to copy.
Notice on the last one how they used a top saddle stand from a touring car for a fender iron. Lots of nice forge work on some of these. I have a wagon with the same type of box and a couple sets of irons I've salvaged over the years. They are getting harder and harder to find. I'm hoping to figure out how to make use of those cast parts on the box I will build for the little open pickup. I think they are really interesting. Only set I've ever seen like that.
Thanks for the information so far,what i,m looking for is the dementions of the wood pick-up bed,how wide,how long front to back.how high, the board size,etc...blue prints would be even better.i want to paint the wood black like they were made back in the day.most of the bed today are to nice...
Cliff Nordstrom had an article in VF (Vol 14,no2 issue) 1979.
You seem to have two postings with the request. Your other one was at: http://www.mtfca.com/discus/messages/50893/73279.html?1227319322
I have e-mailed you a copy of an article.

Yeah, it's not a pickup, but still, it's one of the more attractive Ford trucks; the cab is good, the bed supports are good, only the bed sides are plain. Painted stake sides would be waaay cool.
Poor little Chevrolet
another non-Ford, but better this time
I wish the photo was better
