1929 Chevy International 1/2-Ton Pickup
Bolter # 16689
Johnston City, Illinois
01 December 2007
From Bill :
HI! I was introduced to Stovebolt about three months ago by my Brother-in-law, and found it to be a cool site. Then over Thanksgiving, he said I should submit my 1929 Chevy International 1/2-ton pickup to the Gallery. So what the heck -- here it is.
I bought this truck in August 2007 from a guy that lived 120 miles from me. He was trying to sell it and I was trying to buy it, but my wife had other ideas. After about a month swearing I would never ask for any thing again, (until next time) the wife gave in and it's been a love / hate relationship ever sense. I love the truck and she hates every time I want to buy something for it!
I'm trying to restore the truck to original. I'm finding parts hard to find and when I do, they are expensive.
Well, that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
Hope you find this old Stovebolt worthy of your Gallery. Thanks for a great web site.
Worthy? Bill, if it's old GM iron, it is worthy!! Thanks for sending it in ... and good luck! ~~ Editor
