Hi All,

I have a 1938 Fargo Pickup that my Grandfather bought brand new up here in Canada and was wondering where you could locate any info on them or someone who is in the know.

Its original paint and complete except for the hub caps and the front bumper guards. Any help locating them would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Todd.

Hi All,

Heres the old girl. Pardon the radial tires, they are on there just to roll it around.

G'day Todd, we got just about every import you can think of down here. Makes for good variety on the classic scene. There's a surprising number of Fargos down here.

Hi All,

I just thought I would post a few pics of the old beast now that I got it home. The clean up has begun, 75 year old paint can clean up fairly well with a little elbow grease.

In my first post I was looking for hub caps.... I found all 4 under the seat. Along with 3 mummified rats various dead mice and 3 shop vac loads of mouse/rat nest. There was even mouse nest in the windshield pillars and every other void within the cab. :P

Here you go mate. Here's a Aussie one. It was in my yard earlier in the year, not that I own it, but my cousin has one as well, but I don't have a picture.
