Interesting photos. ;)

Interesting photos? You bet, that just might be the caption of the week.
This seems like you have discovered a heretofore unseen image of a phantom Ford. Look closely, is it a Deuce? Sure looks like it until you notice that the grille has the slant of a '33-'34 pickup grille. The louvers look to be straight as on a '32, but if the grille is slanted and that is not camera distortion then the leading edge of the hood was modified to accept that grille surround. Next move to the header above the windshield, isn't that a taller sheet metal panel giving a higher roof line compared to the '32 Station Wagons? And lastly, how about that suicide front door? So what do you think, any opinions out there?
I know the basement floor is down there because it's holding everything up. I just can't see it anymore.

I'm thinking that it is a coach-built woodie based on a '34 pickup, using the pickup cowl as well.  It also has the pickup bumper.  That's cool !

Thanks, I figured these would stir up some interest. I wish I knew more myself, but these were merely a web find with no explanation. Wish we could read the text in the corner of the photo. Maybe some Hot Rodder in the far east will help us out?

This one is the "Hot Rod", all by itself.
