1931 Chevy 1.5-ton Dump Truck
From Matt :
Here are a few pics of my 1931 Chevy 1.5-ton dump truck. It is not much to look at now but is 98% all there.
I took the truck in as a partial trade (from a friend of mine) on a motorcycle I was selling. He is generally a rat rod builder and could not cut this truck up since so much of it is there.
I am currently finishing some other projects before I get too far involved with this one. I'm still not sure which direction it will go as far as restoration or modification.
This will be my first adventure this far back in automotive history as I have only gone as far back as the 1950's before.
I am enjoying the research on these old trucks right now. Even my wife thinks it's interesting how these old trucks were assembled, and how far we've come in 77 years.
I would like to thank the fellow Stovebolters on the site that have answered my emails and sent lots of pics and info. These are a big help as info on the early 'Bolts doesn't seem to be as easy to find as the 1940's to 1950's stuff.
I will send updates as I go. It will be an interesting experience for me for sure! I can't wait to get started!
I have my Stovebolt handle ("pwrfool") on my 1969 Chevelle's old personalized license plates.
I would be happy to here from other early year owners with info comments or questions. Feel free to email me!
