1946 Chevy 1.5-Ton Farm Truck
01 June 2007
From Scott :
Here is one of the Chevy trucks in my newly started collection.This one is a 1946 truck I bought from a rancher in Eastern Montana. It is original from top to bottom. According to the VIN decoder it was made in Janesville, Wisconsin and is a 160” wheelbase.
The guy I bought it from picked it up at a farm auction in 1998 and the fella that was selling out, still used it to haul grain to the nearby city elevators. No hoist -- they unloaded it the old way!!
The truck has virtually no rust, just what you see on the surface. After all, the paint got baked off in the Montana sun!
I hauled it home, steamed out the gas tank, changed the oil, blew out the fuel lines, put a battery in and Vaarooom!!
Now all she needs is brakes and some mouse nest removal. The interior is coming out. We'll get new seat covers and a headliner. We'll do a little wiring.
Then we will be parade ready!!
