Over 6,000 pictures
Brad Allen has an awesome collection of Chevrolet factory pictures that he has set up from film strips.

This one is on AD Chevy trucks (1947-1955).

Lots of work on Brad's part ... pure enjoyment for you.

Talking about this truck
in the Welcome Center

 

From Russ :

I purchased this 1960 Chevy C-10 off eBay, after seeing only a few pictures [ here's here first photo ]. She looked straight in the pictures without major rust. Rust is all you see in old trucks here on Long Island. Being surrounded by sea water and the salted roads in the winter, causes all kinds of problems here!

The truck was located in South Carolina, right at the border of North Carolina. I flew down to my folks' place in NC and drove 1.5 hours to close the deal. I drove her to my parent's house, picked up a U-haul the following day and trailered her 11 hours up to Long Island.

The truck is completely original except for her paint, tires, etc. [ Here's a view from the rear. ] I painted her to get her out of the gray primer she was dressed with. It took me a few years to find the original hood as the original owner (I bought her from the nephew of the original owner) exchanged the hood for a '63-66 model. I also replaced the bed since it was rotted.

She is a little tired now. I need to rebuild the transmission since I lost the syn in third gear. So the only synchronized gear I have is in second! The engine is giving me problems at 110,000 miles (I have a post in the forums on this). Since this is one of the three trucks, I hope I can find the time to work on her.


Thanks to everyone at this site for helping me keep her alive!

Thanks,

 

Russ



It's so refreshing to see those eyebrows. As Russ has discovered, many enthusiast's have long since replaced their older style hoods with the later, much less radical versions ('63 thru '66). That hood not only screams for attention, but also adds a touch of character. ~ John Lucas, Stovebolt Curator

Russ has some cool trucks in the Gallery: a 1966 Chevy C30 Tow Truck - "Tow Mater" -- a 1960 Chevy C10 - "Ebony" -- and a 1965 Chevy C30 Dump Truck - "Dumper".
