December 2014 Update

When Dean sent in the story about his 1928 Chevrolet AB Canopy Express, "Justin." we asked about the '58:

"I don't have this truck anymore. I gave it to my son Josh as a high school graduation present in 2000. We told both kids (when they were in elementary school) that if they finished in the top 5% of their high school class, we would buy them a set of wheels. Thank goodness we didn't say NEW! Since Josh had been driving the '58 to school anyway, we gave it to him. After a few years, he sold it to a friend. I don't know where it went from there."

1958 Chevy 1/2-Ton Panel


From Dean :

Hi! Love your site! I've been going to it regularly for a number of months now.

Here's a picture of my 1958 Chevy 1/2-ton Panel truck. I use it to tow my trailer, which carries junk (er, parts and projects) home and also takes my 1927 Chevy Cattle Truck (named Lurch) to shows. (Here is Lurch's Gallery page.)

The '58 has a Chevy 350, 3-speed automatic, power steering and the original 3.90 to 1 rear end, making it a perfect tow truck.

Keep on truckin'


Dean Meltz
