Making some slow progress on the closed cab pickup. Had to make front body mounts, had to make a frame and deck to bolt the pickup box on. Still not sure about the fit of the rear fenders. Lately I have been working on fixing the front fenders. Slow at it because of a bad back so it is work half hour then rest half hour.T pickupT 2T 3

It looks to me that you are getting it figured out.

Looking good. I always have wondered why Ford did not make a pickup with the closed cab body. He had everything to do them with except for a few small brackets that would need to be different. Keep the pics and progress details coming :-) :-)

I have seen a few done like this. Even though I KNOW they are not factory, I still think they look great!
And I like the "never was a pickup" thing. I often refer to my unknown make boat-tail speedster as the "not a Mercury".
It looks so much like a pre-model A closed cab pickup. I don't care, I still like it. But then again, I always did like the look of a '28/'29 model A closed cab PU. We had one in our yard when I was little, and it was one of my favorite toys.

Looking good! And I enjoy the updates.
Drive carefully, and enjoy, W2

Those fenders took a special fender iron that were made for that bed alone, which is a 1925. A Touring fender iron will work, but the pickup ones are heavier duty. I think Gator Gould had some made up, at least he borrowed my original to make them!

I like it definitely, looks like a pre A truck. Ford could have made a another small fortune if he would have offered this in the line up... Tim
