imp: Trying to find the manufacturer of a '29 Ford Crew Cab. I think they were made out of fiberglass somewhere in Texas. Anyones memory better than mine??
here is the truck he is talking about, we have a little ways togo but it is all coming together just VERY SLOW likerusttorod said:I just stumbled across this thread. I just saw this truck in person 2 days ago. A friend of a friend had it delivered last Friday to his house just outside of Memphis. It was very impressive! It looks extremely sturdy and well built, and it appears to be quite long to have plenty of room for the back seat. The front fenders flow into the running boards and into the rear fenders as one big long piece. They stole that idea from me! I got several good ideas for working on my 34 just from looking at it. They did a great job of mounting the hidden door hinges and bear claw latches, which I have been struggling with on my car. His plans call for a blown small block to turn the 18" wide Hoosiers out back. He hopes to have it ready to drive from Memphis to Nashville for the Goodguys show next July, but I'm thinking that's an ambitious schedule since it's his first project from scratch. (He's owned a sweet 67 Nova for 24 years) If he drives it in the gelcoat black like he says, it might be at the show. I'm no expert on glass bodies, but this one looked nice and straight to me.
This guy said the company that built the truck (29crewcab.com) was a father/son team. The father passed away while building this one, which is one of 11 built so far. The son is considering selling the molds now. I wish I could afford to buy them, I think this body will really catch on once someone gets theirs finished and the magazines can get some pictures of it. It was very very cool! :thumbup:
