1952 Chevy 3100
From Dean :
Let's see ... first words when I saw it was yeah! Farm Truck. Covered in dust, looked white or faded gray. Took it home later that day, washed it and this was under the grime (be sure to see see the photos).
This old truck had broken leaf springs on front, mismatched shackles on rear, radiator has 16 ... no 17 ... holes in it, park brakes had no adjuster linkage in wheels, rear end leaks grease, tranny leaks, exhaust needed replacement, wires were fire hazard, vacuum wipers didn't work, tail lights were wrong, holes rusted in floor, front right pillar, gas tank rusted out, carb leaking, oil looks like it hadn't been changed in the 59,000 miles showing on speedo that didn't work.
Crossmember under front of bed rusted almost away, probably from fertilizer. Body needs holes patched in fenders, bed side walls, rear left cab corner and need radiator support plate. Grille needs two lower horizontals.
Oh yeah, I think my rear timber bumper may have termites.
So far, I've rebuilt wiper motor, replaced exhaust, rewired the fire trap, repaired speedo, replaced defroster ducts, rebuilt carb, windshield wipers, replaced headlight buckets, front leaf springs. Waiting on rear end stuff now. Will go through rear end bearings and seals when I replace leaf springs and shackles.
Then it's on to the engine and tranny.
