1951 Chevy 3600
From Nick :
Here's my 1951 Chevy 3600 truck and here its story.
My Dad had always wanted a 3600 ever since he found one at a harbor. That one sold quickly and we had to go looking other places. A month ago, a 1951 Chevy 3600 popped up across town and my Dad jumped on it.
Now it's sitting in my garage and ready to be worked on. It's got some surface rust. The bottoms of the doors are shot as well as some parts of the cab. It came with a ton and a half of extra parts in the back -- all from at least five different trucks.
This used to be a farm truck and like all of the good ones, was found in a barn.
We're planning on setting the body of the Chevy onto an S-10 frame. This will give us the modern engine, drive train, power steering and such while keeping the cool look of the Chevy. To do this we're going to need to find a short bed or cut the existing long bed on the truck down to size. Then we will need to transfer all of the body pieces onto the S-10 frame.
I hope to keep all of the gauges but replace the heater with a more robust one so that when I drive up to the mountains, it isn't that cold.
We're thinking that the final color will be red with a chrome grill.
