More truck pictures in Photobucket!
From Darren :
I found this classic truck on my 43rd birthday this year - July 6 to be exact. This old truck was on its way to the crusher. The grille was broken out. The right fender caved in. The only glass in it was the rear window. The wheels and tires were mix-matched. Of course, there were no brakes. I could not let this truck get crushed.
With a few parts I had from my other 1939 Chevy truck project (that I will send pic and story this spring), and some help from my bud at the glass shop, I built a wiring harness, bolted my front wrap on, found a seat that fit. Waiting for some materials from Jim Carter. I've changed all the fluids and rebuilt the brake system. So, I'm driving it a month after I got it!
The cab is in great shape. It has some rust in the bottom of the doors and right lower seal plate. But it's not too bad for a 70 year old work truck ... for around here.
I will find some doors and seal plate later. For now, it's a fun truck to drive.
I'll be taking the truck to the Greaserama in Kansas City, KS this month.
Thanks for all you do.
