1935 Chevrolet 1.5-Ton Dually

From Paul :
Here is my 1935 1.5-ton dual wheel Chevrolet. I bought this pre-War truck from my Grandfather about two years ago. I had to get a big enough trailer to haul it, so I just picked it up this spring.
I don't know a lot about the history of this truck. My Grandfather bought it about 20 years ago at an auction. He brought it home and parked it in the shed. The only time it got moved was if we need to get to something else and it was in the way. The last time I remember seeing it run was about 10 years ago.
I believe the truck still has the original 207 and still turns over freely with the crank. I don't know if the mileage is correct, but shows 43,000. It’s just missing a couple of parts -- for the most part, it’s a complete truck.
The truck came out of the Janesville, Wisconsin plant with the 157" wheel base. It also came with two extra rims (one for the front and one for the back).
I always liked the style of these old trucks and with my Grandfather getting older, I didn't want to see it just go to the highest bidder. I'm hoping to get it restored for my Grandfather to see, because it was always his dream to restore it. My plan is to keep it as original as I can.
