From Cam :

           Here’ my recent project: 1954 Chevy 3100 1st Series. I am the third owner.

           This was originally a workin' farm truck from Ohio or Idaho. Then it was purchased by a gent from Las Vegas.

           The “interesting” farm implements were several weld jobs that included a trailer hitch plate on the back bumper with reinforcing angle irons. It also had angle irons on front bumper, and a U joint welded to the rear hub to act as some sort of a PTO.

           The Vegas owner did lots of work but farmed most of the work out -- no pun intended.

           It went from black to its current color red. This is my third Stovebolt and I still marvel at the series. I have some more pictures at my Picasa site.


           Wow, what a great red!! ~~ Editor
