Re: Express bed boards

Remember the wood filler inside the #3 side panel support and reinforcement assembly (see photo). Without this filler, the floor boards will not lay flat.

Re: running boards

Are these AA? if so what are they worth? anyone looking for a pair? Those look like the long AA running boards to me. Your photo is too small to tell if they are the design 1 or 2. Details are found at http://aafords.com/aa-chassis/aa-16000-fenders/#rb. Reproductions do not have the Ford script - $...

I upgraded to a better tail gate and now have NOS rear fenders. Working on restoration of the rear spring pivots (one side done). Will restore the rear...

Re: Express bed boards

I have cut my bed boards 7 3/16 wide. I now need to cut groves for bed strips. Question - how far from the board edge is the grove. How wide and deep is the grove? Ford sold five different express bodies. My guess is you have the 89-A? Your skid strips and side retainers should be used to determine...

Re: Rear fenders

This is probably a dumb question but can pickup rear fenders be used for the AA truck? I think the truck wheels are slightly bigger in diameter but in diameter but wondering if they would still clear the wheels. My truck is a mixture of years so I am more after function than anything. Original rear...
