From Rick :
The 1946 Chevy 2-ton (flat bed with a dump) was bought at a farm auction. The farmer said the truck had never been rained on as it was kept in a barn except during grain harvest time. He bought it new. It now has 49,000 on the odometer.
The engine has never been overhauled but I did grind the valves. I repainted it but did no body work.
The 1950 Chevy 3/4-ton was stored in a garage for so long we had to cut down a few 8" diameter trees to open the garage doors to get the truck out. It had been used by a roofing company. We are uncertain of its mileage.
The '50 had single rear wheels. I bought the dual wheels and added a 350 turbo-hydro with transfer case to make it 4 x 4 -- when I get a front axle. The engine is a 1967 250 6 cylinder
Both trucks are used on my hobby farm regularly. The big one is also used for hayrides and parades. They both are parked inside the barn
I would like to have a 1941 panel truck when I grow up.
Nice trucks. Love those "working Bolts" around here. And we have plenty of folks interested in planes, trains, and woodworking, too. So, be sure to check Rick's web site. He's got lots of cool toys and interests! ~ Editor
