A long time vendor in Kansas is advertising a vehicle very similar to what you want to build, but it lacks a cab.

might as well sell it with the rear fenders...they will not fit a hack or express body without extensive reworking and even then, will not be right.

I know but a friend has a pair of correct very good fenders he will swap out.
Back in T days they had a truck bed conversion kit for the touring car, I may go that route, it always looked off to me though.

This has got to be the first time I have seen someone go from a nice full Ford body car to something else. Usually it’s the other way around!
