1957 3100 Chevy 1/2-Ton
From Alan :
I have an original 1957 3100 Chevy 1/2-ton. It is still in its original green color. I am only the third owner.
This Chevy Task Force truck was purchased new in Anderson, South Carolina at William's Chevrolet. The man I got it from had it given to him by the original owner's wife after her husband passed away. He kept it on his farm for the last 10 years.
The truck only has a little over 30,000 miles. It still has the original wood bed (although it has seen its better years) and retains its 235 straight six with 3 on the tree.
I was able to purchase the truck from my friend's Dad and drove the truck home.
I have just purchased a set of Diamond Back Radials wide whites and a set of 8" chrome smoothies.
This ole green truck has stolen my heart. Just love it! Every time I take it down the road, I feel like I am back in time. Gotta love these old Chevy trucks.
This is a picture of me and my cousin setting on my Dad's 1950 Chevy 3100 in 1967 (that's me on the right). Dad had re-done the truck himself -- motor, paint and he even cut the wood himself and installed it in the bed. Check out the big whites on the front and the snow tires on the back. Now that is when trucks were trucks -- show in the front and work in the rear! This pic has alot to do with me wanting to get my ole AD resurrected and running so I can take my Dad for some rides in it.
I also just purchased a 1950 and 1953 truck from an old farm. True barn finds. Hope to post pictures of them soon.
