From Mark :
Here is my 1946 Chevy 1/2-ton truck. I fell in love with the truck when I first saw it.
I purchased this truck in 1986. I bought the stock wheels and stock hubcaps (and 6.50" x 16" tires) soon after. I will probably put them back on at some point.
The truck is all stock except for the motor which is a 1957 235 cubic inch. The cab lights and air horn are not stock. The air horn has two storage tanks mounted on the inside of the frame rails.
This Art Deco Chevy was advertised in an area paper. In the many years that the previous owner had it, the truck had only been driven off the farm for a yearly parade. This was for quite some time, from what I understand.
View of the truck from the passenger side.
The truck was ordered with this "knapheide type" bed I believe. I am sure this was just a farm truck, from day one.
I have the bed sides and bed front / back. I like the bare look. I may build some real short wood sides and bed front -- some time.
I haven't driven this truck for years, and it is currently parked in a barn, with lots of other vehicles. I am planning on getting it back on the road this summer, with a dropped axle, T-5 trans, disc brakes, 12 volt swap ... just to name a few.
HAVE A GREAT DAY!
