Brad Allen has an awesome collection of Chevrolet factory pictures that he has set up from film strips.

This one is on AD Chevy trucks (1947-1955).

Lots of work on Brad's part ... pure enjoyment for you.

From Jeff :

This truck was built in Texas and that is where most of the truck was restored. Then the owner moved to Maryland and that's when I found the truck for sale. My wife, kids and I drove a few hours (we are in Pennsylvania) to take a look at it. After looking over it, my wife says "You're CRAZY if you don’t buy it." Not one to let my wife down, I had it back in PA in a week after seeing it.

Very little body work had to be done on the truck. The bumpers were replaced and the truck was painted. No other work is needed, as of now. I may do an engine upgrade (little 230 could be faster). I may go to a few shows just mainly to look around and see what's next.

When I was younger, I had a few older trucks -- a 1959 Ford truck and a 1949 Plymouth car, which I had  to sell. All these were kept stock and used for driving around town. We had a loop that was about two miles long on the outskirts of the city. That's where all the kids drove around to show off their cars and do a little street racing.

Now that my kids are older, I made a promise “to someday get back to them.” And now I am a proud owner once again.

Before coming home with Baby Blue, we cleaned out the garage, painted the walls, put epoxy on the floors, put up curtains -- just like when we were expecting a new arrival. That’s how it got the name Baby Blue.

Living in the country, the truck just seems to fit in with all the older farms, cornfields and small town folks. It’s a pleasure to drive with the 230 6 cylinder (under 100,000 miles) 3 on tree. No radio, no power steering, just a good old farm truck like they had in mind in 1965.

Jeff had submitted a picture of Baby Blue for the 2012 calendar. She does look quite at home in the country. And here's another little taste of home in Pennsylvania. Great shots! ~ Editor
