From Gordon :

This is my 1956 Chevrolet 3100. It is a 6 cylinder 3 speed and does not have a radio, heater or turn signals. It is completely original and very rust free. The original color is Omaha Orange.

The truck was bought new by Riverside County. My understanding is that the truck was used as a maintenance vehicle. I purchased this truck from the Son of the second owner. His Dad bought it at a Riverside County auction in 1964.

I have had four trucks in the past but they were all 1959s. I've always wanted an earlier single headlight truck.

I plan on restoring this truck after I finish a 1955 Chevy Delray for my Daughter. I am retiring at the end of this month after 34 years as a fireman and hopefully will have more time for these projects. 

Great web site.
