A Cool Old Truck

Mike and Noreen Folkerts'

1951 Chevrolet 1/2-ton

From: Mike,

     Enjoyed the web site and will visit often. Have included pic of our '51 and yes, the backdrop is real (just up the road from the house). Don't see any other folks from Alaska on your gallery, maybe we'll be the first.

     We just bought the truck last spring, I spotted it in Anchorage and talked the guy out of it. He owned it for 10 years and was using it as a daily driver during the summer. The truck originally came out of South Dakota and is really solid. I've only done a few things, such as straighten out the wiring, fix the horn, o/h the gauges, add trim rings, visor and bumper guards. Drives fine with the original (!) 216 and 4-speed although not very fast, but we don't use it when we're in a hurry.

Thanks again,
Mike & Noreen Folkerts
