1938 Ford COE Crew Cab

1938 was the first year that Ford came out with a crew-cab, says Jim Randall, owner of this beautiful example. Randall is a retired tile and masonry contractor who used this truck in his San Diego business for 16 years. The truck was a freebie salvaged from defunct chicken ranch, and in his truck he carries pictures that show what a real rust wreck it was (say that three times fast!). Jim lovingly restored the body and dropped it on a '77 Dodge motorhome chassis and drivetrain. The canvass was custom made and really compliments and completes the restoration.

Its all in the details...
