From Tim:

           This is my NEXT project -- a 1946 1.5-ton Chevy, sitting on a 1987 1-ton Chevy Frame. Unlike my yellow 1946 Chevy 1.5-ton that had the big tires, 6 volt system and 235 with twin carbs, this one will have all the 'nice-a-ties' -- such as a 12 volt system with air conditioning, power steering, tilt, cruise, Soft Ride Suspension Seats, over-drive tranny, AM/FM/CD, etc.

           I have a 292 6 cylinder that may go in if I can "build" it at a reasonable price. I'm trying to turbo charge it with a little help from the Inliners.

           There was a 350 and 700R4 in it but they have been sold. I'm still working on "marrying" the frame to the body and once that is done, it should go together pretty quick. Here's a view from the rear.

           I thought this pic of my dog "washing" my tire pretty well summed up the attitude of my wife and neighbors.

           I hope to have it up and running sometime in the fall of this year!
