1934 Chevy 1/2-Ton
From David :
I got this 1934 Chevy half ton as a rolling basket case. The truck was put in the paper -- "haul away for free." Turned out, that the owner had a parts truck to go with it.
The owner was afraid both trucks would rust away in the forest. He had picked them up six years earlier and brought them from Illinois. He had taken the complete or fairly complete truck apart and put it on the chassis for future restoration. He never got to it. So it was sitting like that near the ocean all that time, but the metal was still good --not really any holes.
I put a 235 in it from a 1956. Other than that, its is stock. I put a wood kit in, too. I found the bed in the Palm Springs area.
There are still some key things to do before I drive it. I hope to sell fresh salmon (I am a fisherman) from it in 2010.
I don't know if I will restore the parts truck, but it is in deep storage in case I get a bunch of time to work on it, too. I think I have enough wood to put the second one together without buying a kit. It's alot of wire brushing though -- maybe I will blast the next one.
Thanks for all the good info on Stovebolt.
