A 'virtual garage' of antique Chevy & GMC trucks from around the World
1937 Chevy 1-Ton Pickup
23 January 2008
From Dave :
This is my 1937 Chevy 1-ton pickup that I have owned for seven years. The truck was originally bought to haul coal in the winter and ice in the summer by Hanks Coal Company of Lansing, Michigan [ image of the tailgate signage ].
I bought the truck from the second owner who had it for over 27 years, and ironically owns a heating and air conditioning business.
The only improvements I have made to “OLD BUCK” (my Grandson named him) are new upholstery and a new battery. I have purchased other parts over the years but have chosen to drive him the way he is: rust, dents, warts and all. I consider it a privilege every time I drive Old Buck and hope I will always feel that way.
P.S. I have other trucks and projects including a 1948 Chevy Panel truck originally owned by Saks News Agency of Bismarck, N. Dakota (the company name is very faded on the door panel) and a 1949 Chevy 1/2-ton pickup project (named Jack after my late father). I also am currently working on a 1949 GMC longbed half ton that am bolting on Chevy sheet metal to make a parts fetcher.
~What a cool truck! Sounds like you have some historical vehicles over there! Send us some pics of the others too! ~Gallery Gal
