From Bob: 

       We just bought this beautiful '40 Chevrolet 1.5-ton single rear wheel pickup from Kansas about a year ago and are planning a full frame off restoration. The truck is a rare one. I only know of three other trucks with these hard-to-find 9 foot single rear wheel pickup beds on them.

       The truck is complete and turns over but I can't get it running. It has a 2-speed rear end in it and the original 216.

       This truck is featured on Jim Carter's website in the technical articals under "sheet metal."

       The truck originally had a homemade stakebed on it which we swapped with the pickup bed.


       I also have a picture of our '46 2-ton Chevy which we are also planning a full restoration on. It also has the original 216 in it and has no rust through. We are planning on putting a retro style car hauler bed on it, but leaving the original drivetrain in it.

       I am desperately looking for a set of dually rear fenders for my other truck -- a '39 1.5-ton dually pickup. (I don't have any good pictures of the whole truck for a submission!)
