1939 Dodge TF37 1.5 Ton *SOLD*
« on: September 10, 2017, 04:39:05 PM »
UPDATE: It turns out that having kids = no money or free time. Going into the third year of this truck just sitting in the driveway, I had to be realistic and let it go. Grandma needed the money anyhow. Sold it to some guy who just wants to make it drive-able and enjoy it as it. It needed way more than I'd ever get around to doing anyway. Oh well, I'll find another project someday.



----------------------------------------------
First time I saw it, back in 2011.


Getting ready to move it, March 2016.


Gotta dig out all the junk first...




First time in direct sunlight (well, cloud-light) since 1999.




Lined up with the other abandoned trucks we'd been recovering from around the farm.








I made a post about this a while back. This truck was part of FDR's Civilian Conservation Corps. So it has a little bit of unique history tied to it.



Finally loading it up to take it home, September 2017. It sat there for a whole year while "uncle" dicked around and interfered with my plans.




First time on the road in nearly 2 decades... even though it's on a trailer. Still counts.


Home!


Started stripping the bed immediately. The wood was just rotten. I'm saving the metal pieces, but they've been cut and welded so they're probably worthless anyway.


That's all for the evening...


Started again first thing this morning. Got the bed completely stripped off.


Cleaned out the cab.


And now she'll sit while I rebuild the carb and soak down rusty bolts.

Well we've got the '40 Dodge sitting out by the swamp, lol.. it's a total loss. Had fresh paint and brand new tires when "uncle Mike" parked it out there. That's criminal negligence if you ask me.

WTF Uncle Mike!

I'm glad you got it home.  Don't forget to get rid of those wheels!  I'll look forward to progress on the thing.
