Some photos from another Ford pickup rebuild

A pickup is restored in Wales

Big thanks to Graham & Dave for supplying these photos showing the pickup they restored. The van 'as found' looks like an excellent starting point, complete with its early non-beaded front wings. Someone has covered over the gap where the rubber roof section would have been, and fitted extra indicator lamps to the top of the cab roof. The photo sequence gives a whistlestop guide to the level of work that went into this rebuild.

Ford pickup in as-found condition
As Found
Looking somewhat tired this E83W will go on to live again!
Loaded onto a trailer
Collection time
The passenger side is visible in this photo of the E83W pickup on the trailer. Taking plenty of photos at this stage will help the job of replacing, and refitting, the wooden rear body panels.
Stripped to the chassis
Stripdown well underway
It doesn't take long to get a complete pickup stripped down to its basics. Restoring one however takes a mountain of effort.
Fully restored
Ready for the road
The pickup some time later, completely repainted and refurbished, ready for use once more. I first saw this pickup at Malvern in 2004, prior to the signwriting being applied.

Thanks for sending the photos over gents.
Please do not reproduce any item found on this website in any format, or hotlink directly to images hereon, thanks.
