From Bob :

           Here are some updated pictures of my 1941 Chevy dump truck. It took about three months to clean her up. I rebuilt the seat, replaced the wiring and converted it to 12 volt. The glass has a soft green tint. The paint is flat black.

           When we moved, I drove the truck from Salt Lake City, Utah to Langley, Washington on Whidbey Island. The 950 mile trip took two days to make the trip. It made a real hit the truckers. I loaded all my shop tools in the dump bed and built a box around it. The picture was taken outside Ellensburg, Washington.

From Bob:

           I just purchased this truck. It is a 1941 Chevrolet dump truck. The truck is very complete except for glass and lights. It was delivered last Monday. It fired up on Wednesday and ran like a top, very smooth and no noises. It doesn't even need a tune up!

           I had my eye on it for about three years and finally decided to stop and check it out. I plan on having it ready to go by June. There was a mouse nest in the radiator and the bottom of the fuel tank is rotted out but the cab has very little more than surface rust.

           It was all black and green trim. I am going to keep it as original as I can and still be a good everyday runner.

           I bought it from a dealer and I am the second owner. The dealer had it around for about 10 years. He had sold it on a contract about two years ago. The guy paid $100 down and was supposed to pay $100 a month until it was paid off but he never came back or sent any more money. It must have been one of those deals "the truck goes or I go" and he made the wrong decision. Oh well. His loss, my gain.

           I am going to put the truck back to work hauling rock and firewood.
