From Paul :

           Hey there! Here are a couple of photos of my 1941 Chevrolet 1/2-ton 3 speed. This truck is so original I just couldn't pass it up.

           The story is that it was a local delivery truck for a ranch in California. It has lived its whole life in southern California as I understand it, only tan and black color.

           I live in Oregon so I had the owner send me lots of photos. I just didn't want to make the trip and tried to wait for someone else to buy it. But I couldn't put it out of my mind. So I went and rented a trailer and made a straight through trip to LA and 32 hours later, I was home with this great truck.

           It needs a few fixes like they all do but it is all there and in original condition. It's tough to decide to restore it or just enjoy it's originality.

           Hope you like it.
