I appreciate the pics of the Graham and your outstanding Hennway, zz.
I'm as excited as I was 60 years ago, doing this. First hot rod was a Model A pickup. Back to the beginning for me. Going to get a band saw and brush up on my wood working skills, of which I have almost none.
You know how you get a song stuck in your head? Well, I've got a Fargo hot rod stuck in mine. Hard to concentrate on the work at hand.

I can definitely identify with this! Just pushed a recently acquired '41 Chevy out of my shop only so I could focus on current projects.

But, I would have bought it too. That narrow quarter window just does it for me...

Like I told the Harley biker I bought it from, it's different without being odd. I like it a lot better than the early Model T truck cab I bought and sold at a great loss a year or two ago.

Default It's Home. No buyer's Remorse

Made the 40 mile trek home with the thing disintegrating on my car trailer. Pieces of rotted wood and probably a few rusty carriage bolts along the freeway. Driver Dave came with to help tie it down and unload it.
Still not positive what brand it is. No numbers anywhere. The reveals on the cowl are the most distinguishing detail, along with the quarter windows. I'd like to be sure of the year and make of this cab.
It's most likely this truck. Note the four door hinges and the door reveal.

I'm happy for you, Bob!

You know I love a good ID mystery. I'll beat the bushes and see if I can do any better than the Dodge you posted, which looks good to me, so don't hold your breath!

With Sherlock Crank on the case we will surely have an ID soon Bob your stash reminds me of building model cars back when. Much fun to mix and match something out of leftover bits.

This looks like it - 1930 Dodge. Pics not great but you can just make out the cowl detail...
