1952 Chevrolet 3100 1/2-Ton
My name is Eric Coulter, Stovebolt name JED. I'm now residing in a north eastern suburb of Denver, CO. I currently own a 1952 Chevrolet 3100 half-ton pickup.
I bought my truck about a year ago on eBay, looking like these pictures. Nice thing is it was only about 45 minutes away from my house. I went and looked at it, won the auction, and drove it home.
I'm told the body and paint work was done around 1985 or so. It's about due for an update. The interior was completed somewhere in that era, but the gray cloth seat, door panels, and headliner still appear almost new. For power, it contains a mid 70's 250 cid six, with HEI distributor, a split manifold and duals. Man I love that sound. The remainder of the driveline continues to be a stock 4-speed and torque tube rear-end.
Since I've owned it, I've been trying to improve the cosmetics of the truck. I've removed the painted grille and front bumper, replacing them with chrome. I've also refinished the wood side boards and tail gate, replaced all of the bezels on the head and parking lights. Mechanically, I've tuned and retuned, replaced the fuel pump, added fuel filters, and replaced the pilot bushing and throw-out bearing.
Mainly though, I've just driven the heck out of it. I'm hoping this winter to tear it down, redo the body, paint, and bed wood. Hope to have more pictures to post after that.
For what it's worth, I think you guys have an awesome sight. A lot of good information and helpful users.
