1950 Chevy 3100 1/2-Ton
I was looking for a mid '50ís Cessna 170B when a friend said I would have to get an old truck to go along with the old airplane. I still havenít found the right airplane but this old truck found me and followed me home. Thatís what I told the wife anyway.
It is a 1950 and has a 235 in it but other than that (and an alternator), it appears (to an airplane nut at least) to be very close to original.
It runs fine and I drive it regularly as long as it isnít raining. The vacuum windshield wipers leave a lot to be desired. I just got the truck in early October and other than putting gas and oil in it I havenít worked on it at all -- yet!
It came from Colorado and has no rust on it at all. So this winter, I am going to remove the body and clean everything up and restore it before life in southeast Georgia takes a toll.
Just for the info, the airplanes are a 1940 Piper J3 Cub with an 85 HP Continental on it and the one in back is 1943 Piper Clipper with a 115 HP Lycoming on it.
