More pictures of my old truck

From Tracy :

First and foremost - this is a great site!

I recently became the owner of a nice 1938 Chevy. The previous owner did not want to fool with it any more. It was restored several years ago and had been neglected for some time. The tranny was shot, had bad brakes and the engine would barely run.

This old truck is all original steel (except for the tailgate) with 43,000 actual miles. It still has a 216 (with insert bearings), 6 volt, and enclosed drive shaft.

Originally, this truck was purchased right here in the Tri-Cities area. I am the third owner of Ol' Blue.

So far, I've been spending time trying to get it back in shape - and it has been a lot of fun! I now see how we are "never done" with these trucks!

Thanks for looking.
