From Russ :

           Hello. I have been working on a 1936 Chevy truck for about three years now. I just finished a 1971 Camaro for my Stepson and my wife said I could start on a new project. Well, that's when I found this truck.

           It's titled as a 1935, but I believe the cab is a 1936 low window. I purchased the truck from a police officer I worked with. He bought this truck from the original owner and planned to make it a drag car. I wanted a street rod! Most of the pieces were there.

           I had a new frame built by Progressive Automotive in Columbus, Ohio, with a 9" Ford rear and Mustang II front. So far I have had the rear powder coated and the front A arms chromed. I have a rebuilt 4 speed auto and a small block 350. I am hoping to get the motor running this winter! You know how that is!

           So far I have done most of the work myself with some help from my nephew. We've done body work, new floor, fire wall and steal A pillars.

           I have been trying to learn as much as I can, so that the finished product will be something nice! I think I am on track? I am trying to find a picture of the front that shows a 6:71 blower mounted on the engine and it fits under the hood! I will send if I can find it.

           If you see something I am missing, please let me know.
