More truck pictures of my old truck

From Lee :

CHAPTER 1 - The Acquisition

I guess once you become a Stovebolter, you just can't get it out of your blood! I'm about 90% finished with my 1951 5-Window Chevy Truck resto-mod, so I thought it was time to get started on the next project.

While visiting this year's Pumpkin Run in Ohio, I saw a lot of very nice cars and trucks. One of the coolest in my eyes was a slammed 1948-54 Chevrolet Panel truck. So ... when I started looking around for a new "project" vehicle, I ran across a 1938 Chevrolet Panel truck, located about 45 miles from my home. The owner and I settled on a price and the rest is recent history.

My plans are to shave the door handles, add V8, automatic transmission. I'll be using IFS with airbags in the front and 4-link with air bags in the rear to get this thing low. Eventually, I want to use it for a delivery vehicle for my Kentucky Sauce business (BBQ sauces, etc.) and to take to shows.

I'll be submitting updates and will be uploading new pictures as we begin the disassembly.
