1940 1/2-Ton Chevy
17 March 2005 update
The truck is coming along. I finished the steel frame for the bed floor and welded a sheet of 14-gauge steel in the bed instead of using a wood floor.
I have fitted the 350 Chevy motor with a 200R4 trans. It fits great. Next is the brakes and steering.
I am going to leave the truck flat black -- the so called "ratrod look."
The truck is addicting. Once you get started, you can't stop.

I am the proud owner of a 1940 1/2-ton Chevy. Here's a little run down -- Chrysler torsion bar front end with disc brakes and power steering. Chevy 12-bolt truck rearend. Chrome smoothies.
It was pretty ruff when I got it two months ago but getting better. Could use some help in finding a set of rear fenders.
I came across the truck from a guy I traded a '48 Ford for a Harley Davidson motorcycle. He said he also had a '40 Chevy pickup project. He sent me pictures and I bought it without seeing it in person!
My wife and I love this truck. We will send updated pictures as we go. Please feel free to email me for any other questions. We love your site for these great old trucks!!
