From Scotty:

           Here are some better photos of my truck. Lots of work to do. Man lots of work to do! Ideas will be appreciated!

           I plan on takin' my time. Probably in the "hot rod direction." The bullet holes are probably from a farmers field target practice. Later, I guess someone tried to fix it but found it to be too much.. I'll add a flatbed definitely! I think oak or walnut. Maybe metal but I doubt that.

           Oh the 216 is dead right now. However, it IS an intact 216. Even has the 6-volt generator!

           My wife (Gator) was expecting the worse and we sure got what she thought was the worst - but the truck is exactly what I want. I want to start with that junk and build up. That way I'm not tearing apart and putting back together. I may paint the cab as I keep looking for frame and engine. She will be sweet when she's done!

           I am still in Korea but on a vacation now (hence home to get these photos!). We'll head back in a week. Then a year from now, we will return here for good. The truck is in a storage bay right now.

          August 2006, Packhorse purchased a 1945 Chevy 1-ton from fellow Bolter Ricky "windedexpress" Turner. And the saga continues. ~~ Editor

From Scotty:

           This is my 1946 one ton Chevy truck. I bought it for $200. I want to modernize it and put in a 350 engine with a automatic transmission. I have all of the main body parts but that would take more submissions by me and I will add them later as the truck gets built.

           The truck is all yellow and has bullet holes in the cab, so I think it was a dead state truck in Ohio, before I bought it off e-bay.

           I really look forward to building it and having a blast. The wife says go fer it! She just likes to see me happy and she wants to help me build it.

           I don't see too many one tons on the net. Lots of half tons, 1.5's and 2-tons, but just a couple of one tons. Any Reason why? Is my truck rare?

           I am retired from the Army (a year ago) but stationed here in Korea with my wife until she retires (about 18 months). Then, it'll be time to start on the '46! In the meantime, I'm gathering lots of info. So, please feel free to write -- I need knowledge and guidance. This is my first Chevy project so feel free to advise me on it.
