    Do the bungee cords act as shock absorbers?

    Bungee cord was the suspension on small aircraft for many decades---------about all there was to carry the weight of the a/c and also work as shock absorber in addition to the small balloon tires.

    Well how about that!
    The common ordinary banal bungee cord has been instrumental in landing aircraft for donkey's years!
    Who would've thought that?

    That's one of the things I like about this site; you learn something new virtually every time you click on.

    Is it my imagination or does the beltline on the door sag below the beltline on the cab in the first pic? If so, it still sags in the after pic with no way to correct it.

    yup there's some sag and it will remain. the pass door is worse it will also remain. It could be fixed but that's major surgery that I'm not going to do at this point. These trucks rolled off the assy. line with all kinds of misalignment problems, this one has extras it seems.

    If you raised the door hinges up wouldn't that raise the body lines up? You may have a gap at the bottom to deal with though.

    Hi to All,

     



    Hello to all; I owned a 41 pick-up way back in the last century. I was 16 and my best friend told me a guy we knew had a truck for sale and could get it cheap. We went and saw him and he said he wanted $100.00, so we loaded in my car to go see it. Welll it was really bad, but I got him down to $30.00, no motor 4 flat tires no interior ,front of trans hanging from a rope. But I fell in love with it. Enough of this, the 40-47 cabs are the same . Of course the front fenders and hood were changed, and some changes to the 239 flathead. many of the parts I got for mine came from a 46-47. Also some car parts will fit, such as grills. Ford also made a 1/4t truck that was a station wagon with a truck body , meet a guy who had one , he got it from original owner, nice ride. So as long as title nums match it doesn't matter. Have fun with it. I wish I had mine back, mhutch4848
