  2. The back 1/4 windows were an add on at some point. You cant see it in these photos but at some point a past owner was a radio tech / repair guy and it had Marconi nicely painted on the side. It had a long life as a tradesman's panel and work truck. The only stock side windows on these were incorporated on the carryall suburban's with two roll up windows each side with two rows of seats. My suburban also has barn doors which is really rare as the war effort produced 99.9% with the clamshell door in back.
  3. Yes the M22 does have that infamous whine and just adds to the sound going through the gears off the line or just cruising the boulevard in second and giving it a bit of punch to watch that cowl induction flap go up an down.
  4. Thanks Mark..! That particular photo was take at the Abbotsford International Airport on the wall of a bar that used to be called the Red Baron. Unfortunately the new owners in their lack of wisdom or not having any sense of nostalgia painted the whole wall over one color. I had used that as a backdrop for several cars over the years and it just added a great nostalgic touch. I agree on all your comments as well. If it is a clone it should be stated as that. Otherwise I wouldn't trust any statements of Numbers matching and so on and specifically a GM
  5. You are welcome 58L-Y8. Overall besides the year it is a nice truck and it is low production. As a note the ornament or small globe with the tail on the head light is worth a bit if they are in good shape and a pair. It looks like the right side is missing. If someone on here buys it I have an extra one to make a pair. Probably got the nose piece ornament and the Fargo hood badges as well.
  6. This is a comment on the start of this subject of 1970 Chevelle real or clone. I have owned 3 -1970 El Caminos. 1- 1970 El Camino SS 396 TH 400 2- 1970 El Camino SS 454 LS6 TH 400 3- 1970 El Camino SS 454 LS6 M22 All 3 of these are numbers matching and documented by GM Canada historical services and the LS6 Registry. The only 1970 454 LS6 cars that can be verified as real and not clones are the ones that have a build sheet and are documented by GM Canada and have a 3rd party numbers match. Also the 3rd party LS6 registry and Dale Mcintosh does
  7. That is not a 1939 Fargo Truck. It is a 1942 Fargo. ( decoding the serial number will confirm that) ( a 1939 will start with a 955 and the 1942 should start with a 956 or 957) In 1939 Fargo and Dodge trucks had the headlights inset on the fenders and no cowl lights. That is the same for 1940. 1941 to 1947 the headlights went to the center of the fender and cowl lights added. The grills (nosepieces) and stainless and badges and nosepiece ornaments changed on various years throughout (1939 - 1947). All of the nosepieces are interchangeable throughout 1939 - 1947.
  8. I have shipped a car to Australia from Canada and I have shipped a car from Australia to Canada. I even loaded up with extra parts both ways. It is seamless and easy if you have your paperwork in order. You just have to be patient as the ship(s) hits a few ports along the way. I use containers for offshore moves. The only issues are temperature and humidity fluctuations and can cause some mildew on the headliner. It is an easy fix though with common cleaners. I shipped to and from Port of Vancouver BC. The only other thing to make su
  9. For Dodge, Fargo and Plymouth trucks 1939 - 1947. Those are called cowl lights and acted more like park lights then signal lights. No cowl lights in 39 & 40. For 39-40 headlights on fenders were inset on fenders and had small park lights on headlight bucket. Headlights went to center of fender and cowl lights added starting 1941 through to 1947. That is a really nice green Plymouth truck and the tailgate for sure is the best part. One screw on the back of the cowl light gets everything inside. the cowl light bucket is bolted to the inside of
  10. Fair enough....... Have a great day and all the best in the New Year...!
  11. So who is offering to help sell it? I just offered some comment to anyone looking at it. What are you bored and just need to say something?
  12. Nice truck. And they were a low number build. With the VIN you can do a search and it is possible to get the build card. The nose piece is similar to a Fargo which were the same from 39-47. The stainless strips on the grill bars are the same for Fargo. All the parts one would need for a restoration are available from any supplier of 39-47 Dodge truck parts. Except the hood badges and the vertical stainless strip down the center of the grill. In saying that I would almost bet that vertical piece is the same as a Fargo just the badge is different. There ha
