From Jesse :

Here is a note from my brother Jack on his 1949 Chev 1-ton. He said it was owned by his Father-in-law who was a carpenter / musician. This Advance Design Chevy was parked in his garage in 1981 (last driven). Jack moved it to his garage four years ago. Here is a front shot.

Jack has rebuilt the engine, replaced the brakes, brake lines, master cylinder, clutch and various small parts. All the gauges still work.

It's in pretty good shape for 60 years old.

This picture is its first visit to the sunshine.

"It came out from the garage after four years of seclusion, brakes are still rough, engine has no muffler, just a tail pipe. As soon as the insurance card comes, I can send in the antique plate request and wait some more. I wanted to wash it for the pictures -- needed to have all four sides for the antique application. Susan says she can not remember ever seeing the truck clean. There is one rust hole on one of the pieces of sheet metal that fills the area between the running board and the bed side. Looks like he hit it with some red lead paint. There are a lot of places where it was touched up with a brush but the color is forgiving. Due to the bad brakes and no license, I use the tow bar and the Suburban to tow it from the downtown garage and home. It is back at Main Street."
