Update in 2015: Joe has sold this truck.

 

           When Joe sent in a Gallery submission in November 2006 for his 1946 3/4-ton Chevy, we inquired as to this one. So Joe gave us an update (and a bit of history) of the onset of his Stovebolt Fever.

From Joe :

           This '46 tandem was sold in the spring of 2005.   I kinda wanted to block that memory due to the fact that the first thing the guy did when he bought it was torch the back half off of it so that it would fit on his trailer....   I guess it is tandem no more. 

           I suppose that we need to go down the list of trucks that need an update for the gallery.

           Next I bought a 1957 Chevy Sedan.  Restored that car when I was in college.  It is complete with a nice running 235.  I used it in my wedding and still own it. 

           Next I bought the 1950 Chevy Loadmaster Semi.  You have it in your gallery.  Remember the "Save the Semi" page you ran in 2000?  Well, it worked.  The semi went to a gentleman from Minnesota I think.  His plans were to put a diesel in it and put it back to work.

           Next I bought a 1969 Chevy 1/2-ton Fleetside (orange).  It was a really nice truck.  As always, it's a shame I sold it.

           Next up is that red 1972 Chevy Stepside that is pulling the '46.  It doesn't look it, but it's a real workhorse.  From hauling mulch to sand to lumber to old trucks and tractors, it gets a workout and hasn't let me down yet.  It has a '68 front clip, but the rest is '72.  The previous owner put a rebuilt 350 engine and 350 transmission in it and it runs out pretty good. 

           Lastly, is a 1968 Chevy 3/4-ton that I recently bought for parts for the Stepside and a possible engine swap for the '57.  It ain't much to look at that's for sure, but now my Dad wants to use it as the farm truck.  I don't have pictures of it yet.

Thanks again,

From Joe :

           This is my newly acquired truck #2. This one is a 46 1.5-ton to 2-ton (I don't know which) Chevy tandem axle truck. This truck was thrown in with the '46 Chevy pickup that I bought. 

           I don't plan on doing anything to it other than selling it sometime. I thought that it would be a good addition to The Stovebolt Page as there are no other tandem trucks of this vintage in the Gallery. 

           If anyone wants to make an offer on this big truck, let me know. The only thing that I want is the grille. 

Thanks again!
