That's a nice find. The wooden stringers on the back suggest it was a wooden cargo body or flatbed.

The only thing that looks odd is that there are a lot of digits in that USA number for a '34. I'd expect just a five digit number on a '34 unless it had a special purpose prefix like ' 00 '

Very nice find! Will look great when finished up, love the old Fords and their V8s. Will you post some more pictures, please? Thanks, Steve K.

Actually, it's yard art belonging to a guy I know. If somebody needs it, it possibly could be for sale but I'd have to ask him. As far as USA #, it may have been a Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) truck taken back into Army Service. I have seen higher USA #'s on those that were originally CCC trucks which went back to the Army before WWII.
