This is my 1946 Chevy pick-up short bed. I found it about 17 years ago and the guy didn't want to sell it. I checked every year to see if he would sell it -- but he wouldn't.
In 2001 he said that he would sell it for $300 for just the cab, bed and a rusted-out frame.
So I bought it.
The truck had not moved since 1959 and was rusted out, bent up, and shot out sitting in the mud on top of a hill. It had trees grown up with just enough room it get it though and get down the hill.
So I started checking the web for parts for it. It has a 350 motor, powerglide trans, 1977 Chevy truck short bed frame under it. I still need a driver's side door, windshield frame, tailgate, heater, dash trim, hood, and more. If any one has these parts, please email me.
Andy has a slew of trucks: a 1946 GMC Longbed pickup; a 1946 Chevy Shortbed pickup; a 1941 Chevy Shortbed; a 1941 GMC with a 228; a 1946 Chevy 1/2-Ton Shortbed; a fourth 1946 Chevy truck; and a 1938 1.5-Ton GMC Truck. ~ Editor
