A 'virtual garage' of antique Chevy & GMC trucks from around the World
1953 Chevrolet 3100 1/2-Ton Pickup

From Dustin :
This is the latest addition to my garage. It is a 1953 Chevrolet 3100.
I purchased this truck from my Uncle who inherited it from his Father, the original owner. This truck has been on the same Wisconsin farm since it was new. It was a daily driver until sometime around 1968 (the year of the license plates that are still on the truck). It has been sitting in the barn waiting to be resurrected again -- until now!
Engine compartment -- rear -- front
I plan to get the old girl running pretty much as is for now, until I have the time and room to do a frame off restoration. I will be keeping the truck stock probably right down to the original paint color.
Here are some more photos on My Garage ~~ Hot Rods and Car Culture.
Great choice in trucks! That'll make a great boulevard cruiser. I always like to hear about folks like yourself who have rescued the ole family farm truck and that you're about to breath new life into a forgotten soul. Looks like it's got plenty of life left in it still. ~~ Mike "Burgandybolt" Allen, Stovebolt Welcome (Panel) Wagon
