Hi Mike welcome!

It's good to see someone other than a 47-53 truck owner in the UK.
These as i'm sure you're aware are fairly common here now.

A '37 is pretty rare.
There are many vendors based in the UK for truck parts now,although as mentioned previously they tend to steer towards the 47-53 models and later stuff although i'm sure they'd be willing to help with parts sourcing/shipping if required.

What are your plans,stock or modified?

Pics would be nice too.

Hi guys,

I'm looking for a parts supplier for our old trucks in Europe. Any suggestions? I own a '58 Apache and I live in Belgium.
Everything is available in the States but shipping is very expensive...

The best I can suggest are some in the UK JVL,there are many places here now who cater for these trucks,not sure how the Euro/£ exchange favours you but at least the shipping should be cheaper and as part of the EEC (for the moment) the duties should be less.

Here's a couple of suppliers.

I hope these help...Good luck.

Checkin' in from the Cambs/Norfolk border UK. Just picked up a '51 3100 from up your way Jock. Gets delivered on Monday so it'll be a long weekend. Bought it blind so hope it'll be all as promised

Welcome Andy,glad to see you've joined the gang, was your new truck from a fella Alex Gray in East Kilbride?
Is this your new 'toy' by any chance?

EDIT: I have since chatted with Alex who confirmed this,it's a nice 'honest' relatively unmolested truck with bags of potential.
Did you get the visor too?
If so,they look terrible and you should give it to me to run a consumer test...on mine! grin

As you can see by my previous post there are plenty of guys here catering for our obsession here in the UK now.
All my experiences in dealing with these vendors have been really positive and most if not all are considered friends now too.
The scene here on our little island is just too small to suffer any scammers and con merchants anyway,they'd probably get lynched. lol.

I must also mention the kind folks here,many of whom have helped source parts and even sent them to me before receiving a single dime from me.
It was all based on trust.......

Not wishing to tread on the Stovebolts toes,I'm not sure if you frequent 'Farcebook' but there are some UK based groups that cater for our old trucks,really handy for locating second hand parts (if required)and to keep an eye out for meetings and events.
I recently scored a real peach of an original RH front fender/wing from the NSRA swap meet in Essex amongst other truck goodies.

BTW There are hundreds of these trucks here now.

Good luck on your new adventure!

Yeah Jock, that's the one. It came with a few bits and pieces including the visor. I agree, they look awful so when a local caravan dwelling chap came by looking for scrap metal I let him have it! - it was the first thing I did - putting it back on.
Unfortunately it came without brakes too although this wasn't mentioned to me or the guy who delivered it. He rolled it off the trailer and near abouts went down a ditch. I rebuilt the master cylinder this weekend and they're now as good as gold. I've also got to replace the kingpins but essentially, as you say, it's a good honest truck that is pretty straight and solid. There are some jobs to do but that's the fun of it.
I was a member here a good few years ago going by the name of LimeyC10 when I had a '66 and found it of great help and made some friends along the way - still in touch with a few of them. Any links you can send me to groups here in the UK would be welcome. I used to run a national club here called UK Kustoms and wrote for Custom Car but got fed up with the back biting and bitchyness so tend to stear clear of shows and the scene, as you say the scene is too small over here for all that

Nice one,"caravan dwelling chap" Haha!

I also remember you as LimeyC10 too.
Glad to see you've come back to the fold.

I love the idea of a visor but at 6'4" i'm not sure how i'd get on with that as I can hardly see the traffic lights as it is....lol.

Your new truck,did it have the original M/C?
As you'll no doubt find out there's hundreds of upgrades available for these trucks,so much so you can even still buy brand new cabs if ever one was needed. (at a price of course).

So what's your plans,stock,resto-mod or full custom?

The links I provided above will keep you right as far as parts are concerned.
I know what you mean too about some organisations here,they can get a bit too 'cliquey' for my liking.
Custom Car and Str**t M*chine were mostly reponsible for my addiction,I used to run into Keith Seume regularly too when he was involved in the VWDRC.

Are you on Facebook?
