1949 Chevy Panel
From Douglas :
Pans, Shovels, and Panels!
Being a long time enthusiast of the two wheeled/v-twins, I've always held a special place in my heart for old trucks (especially panels). Seems the bikes were always easier to transform from basket case to rolling stock. Guess fate has a why of helping our dreams.
A couple of years ago I moved from Wisconsin to San Diego and always had a watchful eye on eBay and Craigslist. I had a later model bike for sale when I spotted this panel. I contacted the owner and inquired if he was interested in a trade. He said no. Later he contacted me that he was willing to trade, (done deal!!!)
Upon inspection, he told me the truck was a one-owner from 1949 to 2001. Other than paint, engine, bumpers, wheels / tires and interior changes, the truck is stock.
I have installed new brake cylinders on the front Huck brakes and was enjoying cruzin' the 101 until the front u-joint let loose.
Loving the challenge, I'm waiting on parts to repair and get the old iron back on the road.
The Stovebolt site has been my go to source for info and was proud to become a member. This is a great site with the most dedicated membership!
Hope to meet some of you soon.
