More truck pictures of my old truck

From Russell :

I have owned a 1949 Chevy Fleetline for about 20 years and it has been through all stages from lowrider with flamethrowers to its present stage ... a blown gasser.

I started looking for an old truck to pull it around with and found this 1949 Chevy dually on eBay. After winning the auction, I had to find someone to deliver it to me in Texas. The truck was in Virginia.

After I got it here, I started to do some research on these type of trucks and found Man, do I ever appreciate all the info I have gotten from y'all!!

I learned that the engine was replaced with a 228 G.M.C. and that this truck was sort of a misfit, being that it had different parts on it other than '49 parts. It has a 90 MPH speedometer in it, and also the doors have the push button handles.

I built a new wooden bed because the other one was too far gone. While I was at it, I added a tool box and put a fuel cell in it to get the tank out from behind the seat. I get a LOT of attention in this truck and it is a blast to drive!
