1950 Chevy 3/4-Ton Package Delivery Truck
18 October 2007
From Russell :
I picked up this truck at a farm auction for a measly $200. It is a 1950 Package delivery, body was built in Hamilton, Ontario by Van Wilson Equipment. So far, it looks like it's all there. It has an inline 6 ohv motor from a cab-over truck, updraft carburetor and all.
The interior is very spartan. There is a driver's seat and a heater. The dash has 1950 Chevrolet gauges.
My plan is to restore the delivery truck back to original, which shouldn't take too much. I am sure we can get that old motor running again being as all the parts under it are in very good shape. Even the exhaust looks really good. We have a father and son team of mechanics at work who will be helping me with all the tough stuff. Then we'll just run her through the body shop and give it a splash of paint.
What a deal for $200!! ~ Gallery Gal
