From Floyd :

           You wanna race down to the cow barn?

           I bought these two Chevy trucks from an old farmer for $75.00 each. The five window is a 1948. The other one is a 1951. Both are 2-tons.

           I used parts from the '51 to fix the '48. I also used a front axle from a 3800 and a Dana 70 rear from a 1978 Chevy camper special.

           I am using 16 inch wheels. BTW, I did submit the truck for the IRWIPI contest!

           I also have a 1948 Chevrolet 2-ton. I've got a 250 engine in it. It has a tilt bed with a winch mounted behind the cab. I use it for a work truck -- that's the reason I've never painted it. If I want to take it through the woods, I don't worry about it. Here she is working hard ... and another shot picking up an old station wagon!

           The farmer bought the 1948 in 1956 and never tagged it, just used it on the farm until sometime in the 1980's. The he just parked it. I bought it in May of 1993 and had it on the road in April of 1995.

           The truck that I'm hauling is a 1959 GMC. It was gave to me just to haul it off. I have a clear title with it. It has the Pontiac V8 engine in it.

           Thanks for the Stovebolt Page.
