A 'virtual garage' of antique Chevy & GMC trucks from around the World
January 2009 Update from Randy -- "Have sold this truck."
1953 Chevy 3/4-Ton 3600
From Randy :
Here is my 1953 3/4-ton Chevy 3600. It has a 1959 235 in it and has been converted over to 12 volt. It has original split rims on it. The bed has been covered with a steel plate and this has been welded on.
We got this truck from a guy that had a shirt and hat that had Grumpy written on them. So we call this truck "Grumpy." I guess this is the Grumpy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs?
I got this truck from a club member of Genuine Chevy GMC Truck Club of KC. Many free parts were included with this truck! I learned that this truck was originally bought buy Richards Gabauer Air Force Base in Belton, Missouri, and used to haul parts around the base.
This truck has a 4-on-the-floor and runs really great. It has been sitting for over 10 years. It needed a new fuel pump. Next, I cleaned out the carb and it started right up! It runs great! I had to replace some brake lines and rebuild the brake booster unit under the cab. I had to re-wire the entire truck with much help from Jerry, who is a local truck club member.
Don't mind the rust -- just more character for these trucks that were built to last!
I am a member of the Genuine Chevy GMC Truck Club of KC and have a collection of seven Chevy trucks. I love all this old truck stuff and helping out where I can. We have a great group of people in our club. Keep up the outstanding work! Hope to see ya soon!
Besides being a member of Stovebolt, and the Genuine Chevy / GMC KC Truck Club. Randy has a collection of seven Chevy trucks. Here's his Photobucket account.
