From Dave :
Well, here is my finished 1958 Chevy shortbed fleetside. Since it came from California, It came factory with no heater. It also came from the factory with a yellow engine block.

This is my 1958 Chevy short bed Fleetside. It came from California. I am in the process of restoring it.
It has a factory 283 factory yellow block. It came with no heater. I have the owner's manual and original road maps from several towns in California. It is said to be the personal pickup of a Chevrolet dealer in Los Angeles.
The '58 is painted a color that I mixed. I do truck restorations on a regular basis. I have been restoring trucks, cars and anything else for 30 years now. I am always glad to help. It has come to a time, with all the high gas prices, that the restoration business is dropping off.
I already have a 1946 Chevy 1/2-ton in the Gallery and I have a 1945 Chevy pickup that I will be restoring for myself next. They are kind of rare. I believe in leaving these old trucks original any more because so many people, including myself, have cut them up for hotrods. I would like to have a whole fleet of them for my farm.
