From Morris :

         Here are a couple of pictures of my Stovebolt. I first brought this one home October 2006 [ pix ] . I start her up now and then and drive around a little but she still needs more TLC.

         Back in 1975, I had a 1953 Chevy 3/4-ton model that I brought my Daughter home from the hospital in after she was born. I found that truck at a filling station here in town for $250 back then.

         In the Fall of 2006, I went by the old closed down filling station and there was another old 3/4-ton Chevy about identical to the one I bought there back in 1975! So I tracked down the owner and bought it for ... yes, you guessed it ... $250.

         I re-built the carb but I must have dropped the ball on that. It doesn't work as well as I would like. (Any good carb people out there ?)

         The truck has a 1959 inline 6 cylinder with a split exhaust manifold with dual pipes out the back so she sounds pretty cool.

         I've got some pictures up on Webshots.

         I had also been looking for years for another truck. I found a 1954 COE (the pictures are on the Webshots album). It took a while to get her home but she finally is here! I'm hoping she's a 1954 vintage. Got big plans for her. Stay tuned ... I will get a write up as soon as I can.

         Life is grand.

Thanks,

Morris
