From MT:

     The green Chevy 1/2 ton was purchased from the original owner by me in 1977. It was pretty rough when I bought it. The original owner drove it for 26 years until it stopped running. This truck has gone through several restorations over the years. I have owned it 24 years now and it's still costing me money.

     This truck still has the original 216 motor it was built with. The motor was rebuilt in 1979 has given me no problems at all, except a valve job 2 years ago. I have tried to dress it up with NOS options and accessories without over doing it. It sports an original radio, fresh air heater, GM grill guard, fog lights, outside visor, factory sway bar, side-mount spare tire carrier, original radiator overflow cannister, dual matched horn kit.

     This truck is a blast to drive.

     I will send pictures of my current projects, 1954 Chevy telephone truck, 1954 2-Ton COE, 1949 Suburban and my 1947 2-ton COE. when I get a chance.
