"Ol' Millie"

Owned by Michael Lawrence
Bolter # 3776
Placerville, California

12 August 2004

From Sarge:

         I finally acquired this 1936 1/2-ton low cab through a gentleman who knew the original owner and had been trying to get him to sell it for many years. The original owner is now in his 90's and finally agreed to sell. I bought it before the bill of sale was cold and am now the actual second owner of the truck. [ driver's side view ]

         It was built in Oakland and first sold up in the dry, eastern area of Oregon. There it remained until my purchase earlier this year.

         It is all original minus the front bumper, and wood in the bed and is missing engine and seat. The original engine was gone, but I have another 207 ready for service soon. I am restoring Mildred ... or Ol' Millie as we call her, to factory specs. Probably back to Brewster green and black. I have new white walls on it from the purchase of some clean artillary rims, but will not have them on there in the end.

         Things that I need to find are the seat frames, bumpers, and tail light bracket, and a crank would be nice.

         Good luck to all my fellow Stovebolters out there. I was just at Hot August Nights 2004 and saw one 1938 pickup driving away, but that was IT for the 1930's Chevy pickups.

Semper Fi,


         Speaking of a 1938 Chevy pickup, Mike also has a 1938 Chevy 1/2-ton in the Gallery, a "sign from the Vintage Chevy gods." ~ Editor
