More pictures of my old truck

From Don :

I found this 1953 Chevrolet 3100 short bed pick-up truck for sale in Southern PA. The young fellow who owned it had started to restore it but had to sell it -- he wanted a new house.

The old truck had been the young man's Grandfather's. Now, I am the second owner.

I trucked the Chevy home on my trailer -- the truck was all apart. I used a friend's enclosed truck for all the boxes and loose parts. My wife called it "Don's Puzzle."

So now, everything has been replaced or rebuilt. All the painting has been done. Everything has been put back on the truck. I rebuilt the complete drive line. I have worked on and off this project for four years. Now it's done! I have had allot of fun doing it.

Here's a view from the front!

Now it's time to start on my 1959 GMC 860 Single Axle Truck Tractor -- more fun.
