From Jeremy :

           Here is my 1951 Chevrolet 6400 2-ton with Omaha standard grain / cattle hoist bed.

           My Stovebolt handle is "H.I." - just like Nicholas Cage in "Raising Arizona." I've been a member of "Stovebolt" for several years, but have never submitted any pictures for the Gallery. I felt I would end that trend by submitting pictures of my 1951 Chevrolet 6400. [ Side view ]

           I bought this truck from a fellow Stovebolter (51flatbed) in Nashville, Tennessee. It was a working truck there, just as it is now in Florida.

           The truck came with the original Omaha Standard 13' Grain/Cattle hoist bed, complete with folding sides and end gate. Here's how it looked when I got it.

           The truck is still 6v, and nearly everything works, including the 2-speed rear-end, and hydraulic dump bed.

           Most of the wood is in excellent shape. The band around the bed is in good shape, except for the area above the rear wheels. I'm sure years of caked on mud from fields and pastures is the main culprit.

           The body is straight and nearly rust free, with just a couple of spots of cancer around the fender to cab mount, as well as cab corners.

           The truck has a later model 261 Stovebolt and it runs great.

           Lately, I've just been doing general maintenance and clean up to the truck, including sandblasting the wheels, frame, and bed, and giving them a good coat of enamel paint.

           I intend to preserve, use, and maintain the truck, so future generations of my family can enjoy the truck just as I do.

Thanks for looking,


           Jeremy also has a 1972 GMC K20 and a 1971 Chevrolet C10 that his Grandfather purchased new. ~~ Editor
