More pictures of my old truck

From Mike :

I purchased my 1954 Chevy truck along with a 1941 Chevy coupe from an older gentleman and his wife, as they were planning a move to Florida. The previous owner was going to do a complete restoration but decided he needed to downsize for the move. Currently, I am keeping the car in my garage, while the truck is parked in the driveway.

Although I am a relative newbie to the classic restoration scene, I do have a 1966 Mustang that is being restored by a friend. This one (my truck) I want to do myself, so I decided to throw my hat in the ring and give it a try.

The truck is a Chevy 3100, 3 window cab, standard bed with a 235 inline 6 and a 3 speed (on the tree) transmission. Currently, it is capable of being driven, but is in need of some major restoration.

So far, I have already done a few things as I can afford it and as the weather will allow.The Photobucket link above shows my progress.

Now that it is getting nicer out. I will probably be doing a lot more work on it. I named it "Chester" after my late Grand-Father-in-law. He also had a 1954 Chevy, way back in the day.


Thanks,

Mike G.

Looks like a nice, solid project / driver. Great photos in the 'Bucket. Welcome to the hands-on scene! Hope the gang can be of help. ~ J. Lucas, Curator
