More truck pictures of my old truck
From Paul :
I bought this old truck from a fellow who had purchased it from the original owner's family. The second owner only had it for a year before selling it to me. It came with the owner's manual, maintenance records and even the original sales receipt.
Overall, this classic truck is in good condition with minor rust issues in the usual places. The engine is a 292 six and still runs and drives excellent.
The previous owner replaced the 15" split rims on the rear with 16" steel wheels. I did get two more 16" wheels for the front.
For the time being, I'm going to drive it (it's just way too much fun) and plan to do a little fixing here and there. I do plan on keeping the six banger because I kinda like 'em.
I used to own a 1948 Chevy Sedan Delivery, a 1956 Chevy Del Ray 2 door post and a 1964 Chevy short step. They were all Inline 6 powered. I had to sell them all, except for the delivery, which was destroyed in a fire.
Since then, several decades have passed. The kids are raised and I just had to have another Bolt. I took my time looking at several types of vintage iron and found myself drawn more to the trucks. I couldn't pass this lovely lady up.
When checking out my pictures, you may notice the original Custom Cab steering wheel. It has no cracks and the only place the white is worn is at the 12:00 position.
