From Greg :

I found this truck at a farmers' market last fall. It is a 1952 Chevy Canadian-built 1300 series. I had looked for about 20 years for something that was decent and ready to drive.

This Advance Design Chevy has a 235 engine and a 3 speed transmission. I have just acquired a 261 engine with a 4 speed trans which I plan to beef up a bit, change the gears in the rear end to get highway speeds out of it.

I also plan to drop the truck four inches to give it a nice stance. I'll remove the back bumper and add a roll pan.

Hopefully this summer I will strip her down to start ground up restoration.

If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
