From Des:

           Just a quick update. I have been able to pick up a couple of half doors. I have been told that these were brought out in a cheaper version. The chap I bought them from said it took three years to find full size doors.

           The only other work done was to pull the old timber off the back of the truck and try and save all the mounting bolts.

           I have a web site now, with more information!

Bye for now.

From Des:

           I have searched through my photos and have found a Chev the same model and shape as my basket case. I took the photo at the Australian Nationals held at Southport on the Gold Coast in Queensland. Here's a photo from the front ... and one from the back.

         On our holidays we were traveling through the Blue Mountains area outside Sydney heading toward Dubbo when I spotted some doors the same as the one's I am chasing for my Holden bodied '34 Chev 1.5-ton truck. We didn't stop then but on the way back. Turned out to be a Holden bodied Bedford long wheel base 1.5-tonner. There are a lot of parts that look GM.

           Haven't done much on the Chev's as of late. Busy doing work at home. I will send some more info soon. I have published a web site with more pictures.

From Des:

       I have recently found the Stovebolt site and decided to submit my truck, 1934 Chev 1.5-ton (Australian). I recently purchased it after driving past it for months. I store it at my friend's property not far from here. I do not have room at home as I have a '35 Chev standard Roadster Ute (utility) different to a pick up back.

       I have sent some photos of both. Only two photos of the ute -- one of how I bought it (in a million pieces). The other of where I am up to.
