Thats a nice looking truck dude! I would take the pin stripes off just because I myself do not like them, then I would upgrade to newer style side mirrors. Other than that its a pretty awesome truck!

loose the pin stripe, ditch the tinted tails and get some 06+ 2 color tails (needs a conversion though) straighten front bumper and thats about it. good looking truck, one of my favorite gens.

oh btw, 06+ mirrors will fit on your 97

I was going off the fact that the side mount generator and ford scripted fenders did not show up until 1950 and that looks to be a 1949-1952 style steering box. And since it still has the wing mounts for the headlights that would make it an early 1950s model.

Still a really nice tractor. I love the old fords, not as much as the John Deeres though! ha.

DO everything Patrick said to your truck and it'll be perfect!

Ditch the pinstripe.
I'd put stock, slightly niteshaded, rear tail lights on there.
Paint the flares.
New badges.
Window tint, if it doesn't have it already.
Ditch the bed rails, then get the truck LineXed
Low Pro Aluminum toolbox

Other then that, looks great. I'd love to have a Ranger of that Gen.
