The story of Sr. Pedro Flores' 52 Chevy pickup as translated for us by Glenn A. Foster


      "Esta es la Historia de mi pick up. Espero puedan "translate".
      This is the story of my pickup. I hope all y'all are able to translate.


      I received the following from Sr. Verduzco about his truck. I know what he is saying, but the best I can do is give you "the gist" of his story, and I think he deserves better than that.




      I purchased this 1952 Chevy in 1997 in Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico, because my father used this type of pickup for his work. Before I started to restore it completely, well my thoughts were to enjoy it (play with it) for a while, but finally to make it completely original.

      In order to find all the parts that were missing on it, I had to scour almost the whole state of Sonora to find this kind of pickup to complete it. The emblems on the cab, the hubcaps, windowlace, rear view mirrors and windscreens I purchased in Orange, California

      After about 5 years of complete restoration, and in 4 auto shows I have taken it to in Sonora, I have brought home 2 second place awards, 1 first place award, and 1 major recognition award for my original pickup.

      The pickup is in very good condition. I changed the motor to an in-line 6 cyl. 235 and the trasmission to a 4 speed. The tires are 15 inch tires.





Thank you.

      Esta Chevy 1952 la compre en el a?o de 1997 en Ciudad Obregon Sonora Mexico, por el motivo de que mi padre uso este tipo de pick up para su trabajo, empecé por restaurarla completamente, pues mis piensos eran de jugar arrancones de de milla, pero termine por dejarla
completamente original.  

      Para encontrar todas las partes que le hacían falta, recorré casi todo el estado de Sonora, buscando este tipo de pick up, para completarla. Los emblemas del cofre, Copas de rines, empaques de las ventanas, retrovisores y parabrisas los compre en Orange City, California.

      Tarde 5 años aproximadamente en restaurarla por completo, y en 4 autoshows que la he llevado en el estado de Sonora, me he traído 2 Segundos lugares, 1 primer lugar y 1 reconocimiento de mejor pick up La Pick up esta en buen estado, cuenta con un motor L6 235, y transmisión de 4 velocidades, Rines de 15 pulgadas.

      Muchas gracias.

A big thanks to Kip, Irma and Glenn A. Foster for helping with this translation!

      "Since I don't know English, I don't know if you are able to include me in The Stovebolt Page. I have a 1952 Chevrolet pickup I reconstructed (restored). I am from Ciudad Obregon, Sonora, Mexico.

      I await your reply.

Sr. Pedro Flores Verduzco."

      Glenn also sent Pedro a grand Stovebolt welcome. I don't know about Spanish ... but I do believe these two are speaking the universal language of Stovebolt love. Yes? Si?

      Bienvenidos, Sr. Verduzco, y buenos dias de El Stovebolt Page, El Sr. John Milliman recibio su escrito y los fotographias.

      John me pregunto a respuestar a ud., pero mi espanol no esta muy bien. Quisas Sr Ralph Lopez de Tucumcari, New Mexico pudiera a ayudarnos mas mejor. Espero que si.

      John quiere un historia de su camion porque incluye esta historia y su fotographias in la Gallery. Por favor, si puede a darnos su historia in espanol, quisas Ralph y yo pudieramos a "translate" a ingles para todos.

      Gracias mucho.

      Su amigo de los camiones especialidades--los Chevies!
