1941 Ford Pickup – William David Short

  • “In restoring my 1941 Ford Pickup, I found my frame was a total rust bucket. I was intending to put a Mustang II front end in it and started looking for a new frame with Mustang II front end. I found that TCI had such with rear end and brakes and bought the whole package. As a novice on front ends I was concerned when it arrived all apart. Using their step by step directions I got everything put together and now I have the cab and bed attach to the frame. The only complaint I have is all the bolt holes are metric. Would have been nice to know before I tried using the bolts I had to attaché the cab and bed.” - William David Short, 1941 Ford Pickup
