Hello everybody! Thought it was time to add a new addition to the 1938 Truck gallery! wink
Anyhow, we have a Big Bolt, manufactured in Kansas City, Missouri, still has the tags! This is a dual wheel, 157 inch wheel base truck. We have been looking for one throughout the last year for a farm truck but nothing crazy intense, more for a "classic" farm vehicle look that's taken well care of but still is worked.
We ran across the ad after several pages of Google on a lesser known website. It was a museum located in Rapid City, South Dakota that was selling it after buying it from a sale. We talked on the phone for a few days getting information and figuring out how we'll pay for it and move it off the lot. Turns out I was able to drive with our pickup and trailer that's pictured, to move the truck plus get it to a shop that will help me in getting started! Fun thing was seeing people's thumbs up as they passed and I had one truck driver comment on how awesome it was to see it and really liked the looks of it when I stopped at a truck stop for air. So the plans for the truck is to first get it in running order. Taking the stuck 216 and putting a 261 Chevrolet engine with the four speed transmission that came with the motor with a PTO on it! Our plans is to use it on the farm and once completely road worthy, take produce for delivery or farmer's markets! We are so excited and will definitely keep updating as they come and post pictures once we start. We really like the old classics and intend to use them and take care of them!

Here is the album to the truck!

Nice!
Looks to be about the same condition that mine was in when I got it.

UPDATE! The shop we have the truck at in Minnesota just now had the 216 taken out, put the 261 in with water pump modifications and a few of the lines as well. He had it driving around and everything looks great! Just waiting now though till we get moved there to see what we can afford after the move which the shop is being very gracious to us in all this. Wanted to share with you what just got accomplished! Have an awesome day everyone!

That is an awesome truck.

So you are moving to our fair state? Where are you now and where up here are you moving to? Where is the truck?

Well Rich, we have been wanting to since March! We are still in Nevada just about to close on our farm. The 1 1/2 ton is in Litchfield, MN and the 3/4 ton will stay here in Nevada until the pickup is completed from it's restoration. We're hoping to buy a home near Maple Lake, MN. Praying and hoping we get there in the next month! We'll be updating as things progress and will definitely make ourselves known that we are in Minnesota once there! grin
Thank you for asking!

Great news BigChevroletFan. That 261 is a dang good engine. Glad things are going well. Keep the progress reports coming.
