From Keith :

Greetings! I am currently involved in restoring two old bolts. I have a 1949 Chevy 4400 with a dump bed on it that I got while I was in school in Nebraska. I had quite a time getting it since I bought it just before the winter of 2007, and that is when we had quite an ice storm.

I finally got the old farm truck home in the spring of 2008. I have yet to do any major work to it, mainly do to the ice storm clean up, and the fact that the ice storm was not good to our fences.

I did get it started soon after getting it home. I checked everything over and took it for a short test run. The the major issues are that one front leaf spring is broken and the king pins need to be replaced.

I plan on slowly restoring this truck and using it around the ranch and hopefully take it to some shows. We are also planning on moving our ranch so it will get a good workout then, too.

The other truck I have is a 1970 GMC 3/4-ton I bought from a neighbor. This truck was bought new by another farmer in the valley where we live. He then sold to my neighbor then I bought it. This one I am planning on having the body done professionally for a daily driver.

I will try to get pictures of this one soon.

I will keep everyone updated on my progress. 49' Chevy 4400
