From Leon :

         I have been a fan of old Chevy trucks since high school. When I finally came into a position to own a restored pickup, I jumped on the opportunity. Now I am the happy owner of this 1948 1/2-ton. Obviously, a previous owner swapped the doors because vent windows were not available in 1948.

         The history on this truck is a little sketchy. The restorer bought it from a guy who had inherited it from his Father. I have no serial number and the VIN is from the motor so I have no way of obtaining details about where and when it was manufactured.

         I use this truck for towing an 18 foot center-console fishing boat about 15 miles round trip from home to the boat ramp. Sometimes I drive it around on the weekend and once in a while I park it at work where a gang usually gathers at break time.
