After decades of looking and having the project on hold for over 10 years I have finally found a restorable and chromeable grille..It is on e-bay and comes attached to the whole nose of the truck but I will go after all of it..Shipping should be fun but the seller seems willing to work with me.It also comes with a unbroken and very hard to get hood ornament (I have one )which is worth half of the asking price..I will know more in a week....

Well..I got the grille off of e-bay.As usuall someone tried to out bid me at the last second but i had max bid set pretty high and they never had time.to catch me.It will be a few weeks before its here .It needs a bit of work (missing a pc).But well with in my abilities to fix..Buy the time I get it here it will have cost me about a thousand dollars.Then there is the chrome.It is a momentous day for the old girl......

Small up-date.....I haven't touched the truck lately as I am to busy building my Mustangs (67&68) and doing a full resto on a 70 Challenger for a customer.I am however almost finished the new home on my property for the Diamond T.It will have its own building(nothing fancy) and a small work shop that will be stictly for the truck.I am looking forward to tinkering with it again...Cory

I fired the old girl up today.Stuck the charger on the battery for the day and dumped a little gas down the carb.It hasnt run for 2 years but it fired right up and was quite content to sit there and idle.I hope to move it to its new home in a week or so...

I donated my old grille to a fellow in Virginia last week who has mounted a Diamond T cab and nose on a hand built chassis .Appears to have 1 ton suspension and a Cummins for power.The metal work is outstanding.Hand made side panels,hood.running boards and who knows what else..I know he lurks around here as he has seen pics of my truck here...I hope he posts some pics of his truck here..

Minor update......Truck is still resting peacefully in its new home...I am trying to get the Mustangs finished so I get get the old girl into the shop...I am also quietly looking around for a turbo diesel 5spd.I dont want to cut anything so the 6BT is out...Maybe a turbo 4BT .I am doing my research on Hino diesels as well.....I am happy with the 300 Ford but "Plan A" has always been a diesel......Cory

Well....other than collecting a few parts the Diamond T has just been sitting and resting.I was in a pretty bad head on collision in my F-250 at the end of April and it pretty much shut me and my projects down for 2013...I still have some healing to do but I should be ok .I hope to spend some time with the D/T in 2014......Cory
