1950 Chevy 1-Ton Delivery Truck
I purchased this 1-ton delivery truck at the Rosanky, TX swapmeet a couple of years ago. It lived all its active life in San Antonio in the employ of two different moving companies.
The 235 c.i. straight six that worked when I first bought it, died a slow death. Now I have a rebuilt 261 (bored 40 over, with a Fenton dual intake manifold and Fenton cast iron exhaust headers) ready to put in. Am also going to install a more modern rear end will taller gears for the highway.
Eventually there will be a pretty thorough restoration, and the plan is to keep it looking basically original but make it a more roadworthy and comfortable driver.
I also have another interesting vehicle that is waiting in line for restoration. It is what I call my "1-ton Suburban", a 1950 1-ton panel truck that went to a conversion company somewhere and was "Suburbanized" with side windows and seats.
