I'm retired, and this last year I aquired a 1934 Ford pick up that I am building into a traditional style rod. Pretty much is completed, just adding stereo, guages, and speakers. My challange on this project was to do everything myself, using salvaged and traded parts when ever possible. Had to spring for new aluminum radiator, and upholstry, but that is all. Total cost so far is under $6,000.00,so I guess it still can be done on a budget. Thanks. R.J.H.

Welcome to the group. I to am working on a 1934 ford truck. When i got mine my dad traded painting a house for it.What i got to start with is not much.I got the cab / that has been chopped / channeled.The box was hacked i think with an ax to 3 feetlong. The rear fenders were cut on both ends / widened to 14 inches.There is no front body parts just a make shift grill. I have been working on and off for many years learning and building as i go.It is a lot of fun.

Cool project I have a '32 Ford Pick-up I plan on doing as well, one project to finish first though. I found mine, not complete but have managed to put together a complete '32. Sits on the front lawn, so the good fenders are hidden away.
