Thank you Chris!

Looks possible, but I have not found the pick-up truck photo on the curtright site. Do you know any source where to find some pictures of Model J truck conversions?

Cheers

Matt

The truck photo I have is associated to 2370/J350. That chassis apparently now has the body from J237 which would correlate with the post from Chris.

I don't know why Jack Curtright's site no longer has the photo but I'm pretty sure that's where I discovered it.

Hi Steve,

The truck in the photo is J-350, not J-237. I just got the two chassis swapped around. Thanks.

...I just "fall over" this older posting. Do you know where do you find that picture at the Curtright website/ to which car (J-number) that picture belongs?

As I read in an old road & track article, J-132 was at a time used as a pick-up truck on a farm, until Homer Fitterling purchased the car and equiped the chassis with a Murphy CC body he had "in stock". Is that maybe the car on the picture?

I know that a forum-member is today the proud owner and driver of that Murphy CC, maybe he owns some photos of the "pick-up time" of his car and like to share them...

Cheers

J-132 was never actually made into a truck. In the time that I spent with Keith and Gerri Brown, I learned that the Road and Track article has several innacuracies. Paul S. Johnson, a Chicago-area plumber did remove the rear portion of the original Derham sedan body, planning to build a truck on it's 17,000 original mile chassis. He never completed the conversion, however, and eventually sold the car to Keith Brown of LaPorte, Indiana in October of 1957. It was Keith who mounted the Murpy CC body and sold the car to his friend Homer Fitterling.

Hello Steve,

thank you for the advice, now I found the Pick-up Truck photo on the Curtright-Site attached to his data-collection about J-350.

Here it is: http://www.duesey2208.com/Datasheets/Mo ... rm2370.htm
