Hello From SLC / Help indentify this beast

PostFri May 11, 2012 10:05 pm

hey guys, my name is johnathan, and I run a salvage business here in salt lake city.

A year ago, I came across an old ford carcass, but it was buried so deep in the mud that i didnt know what it actually was.

as of this past month, i have begun excavating it's grave in order to find out what this thing actually is.

any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you sure it is a Ford? It doesn't really look like a Model T or Model A engine.

That's what I was thinking. The radiator return is too far forward for either of those engines. (Every picture I could find had the radiator return centered on the driver's side of the block.)

After taking some time and looking, I've come to the same conclusion. Im going back later this week and doing some more excavating around the site.

Im hoping to have a complete chassis out of the mud by then

To me the hubs denote something built before the end of the 20s, firewall is the typical gas tank of the 20s into the 30s and thee water outlet looks International Harvesterish...
