More pictures of my old truck

From Kevin :

Here is my 1950 Chevy 3600 that I purchased a little more than a year ago. The pictures were taken just after I had gotten it home. This old truck is really in pretty good shape overall.

I am the second owner. The truck was purchased new in 1950 by Mr. Arthur Dobler at Sim Hudson Motors of Burlington, Colorado. Mr. Dobler used the truck around his farm (mainly to haul grain) for 52 years until he died in 2002.

The truck sat unused for seven years until it was sold at an auction in Silver Plume, Colorado.

The bed on the truck was built by the Winter-Weiss Mfg. Company of Denver, CO (anybody know anything about them?) . Both the truck and the bed are in very original condition. The bed has a home-made repair patch that was made out of a 1957 Colorado license plate.

When I bought the truck, the headlights and turn signals worked as well as the original tail light (still in place on the rear). The odometer reads 76,562 miles.

After I bought the truck, I lost my job so it was over a year before I could afford to ship it home and begin the process to bring it back to life.
