From Jeff :

This is my 1949 Chevy Panel. It is my first project in a long time. I hope I didn't bite of too much.

We found this old girl on eBay for $400. We bought it and drove nine hours to get it. Then we had to turn around and come home in a snow storm.

The van was first owned by a T.V. repair shop in Minnesota. Then it was sold to a dairy farm. The last time it was driven was in 1969. After that, it has been in the junk yard -- where we bought it from.
