More truck pictures of my old truck

From Craig :

I purchased this 1933 Chevy ton-and-a-half in June 2009. This old truck was located in Elk Grove, California and I had to haul it to my home in the San Francisco Bay Area.

This classic truck was originally employed by the American River Sand & Gravel Company of Sacramento, CA. It was used to haul sand, gravel and mortar. It still has lots of white stuff stuck to the inside of the bed.

Later, the truck was purchased and used by a walnut farmer in Knights Landing, CA. The truck "retired" and stayed inside the farmer's barn from the mid 1950's until 1987. The guy I bought it from pulled it out of the barn and got it running again, but never got around to restoring it.

So far during the past five months, I've got new tires on it, replaced the upholstery and done lots of grinding and sanding of old paint and rust -- plus a few other mechanical items.

The dump bed still works and was made by Wood Hydraulic Hoist & Body Co. (also known as GarWood Industries - same guy that built all those old racing boats.)



Looks like you've got a good start on this restoration. Keep us posted! ~ J. Lucas, Curator
