1946 Chevrolet 2-Ton
From John :
I bought this truck from a neighbor about two years ago. It is a 1946 Chevrolet 2-ton truck with a 235.5 cubic inch six cylinder (which I understand to have been an option that year for the 2 ton).
Weird story ~ the truck was built in Janesville, Wisconsin and belonged to a lumber and coal company in the town I grew up in. It was sold to a local farmer, and then to my neighbor.
My neighbor passed away and I ended up purchasing it from his widow. It hasn't been on the road since 1965.
I have some neat original stuff -- registration slips, key chain from the Chevrolet garage that serviced it, etc.
I have done a few things to it, but I am sorry to say that I think I'm going to have to sell it.
By the way your web site is a great, excellent resource.
After John's '46 was listed in the Gallery, a few emails later with Mike "Burgandybolt" Allen (Stovebolt Welcome Panel Wagon), John gave us a great Saga about his truck. Come read this epic tale! And read through as the history of this Stovebolt unravels! ~ Editor
