From John: 

       This is a '53 1-ton 5 window 235 4 speed flat bed. It runs and drives good. I also have a '53 1/2-ton with no motor or trans. It has a good, solid body but it is just a 3-window.

       It has a homemade flat bed. and has 18 inch wheels.

       I dont know to much history about the truck. When I bought it the first time, it had a homemade camper on it. I sold it to a frend of mine and he took the camper off and lived in it up in the Black Hills. He made the flatbed for it but he never drove it for four years so I bought it back. Now I have too many projects so I need to get rid of it

       The truck is in South Dakota. It has the stock motor and drive train.

       Sorry for being so short on the info. I am not to good at this, but anyone with questions can email me.

       John also has a 1967 Chevy C-10 in the Gallery from March 2003 that he and his son fixed up -- an old farm truck. In October 2006, he submitted a 1950 Chevy Delux Coup, modified (you gotta see that one ). ~~ Editor
