From Scott :

Here she is. My newest big Bolt! This is a 1955.1 Chevy 6500 series with an additional two foot frame stretch. It has a 16 foot Omaha Standard cattle bed.

This vintage truck is a true barn find. My buddy Bill Alderson got it as a package deal when he bought a Caterpillar dozer from an estate. This old truck sat in a barn for several years from the looks of the inside of the gas tank.

Within a half hour of taking delivery of her, I had her running and driving under its own power, without brakes of course.

This is a very solid truck with most everything in working order. I even found cattle yard receipts in the glove box showing what she was built to do. Since I don't haul cattle, I'm thinking of making a rollback car and truck hauler out of it.

Here's a bigger picture of her from the driver's side.

Now, off to order a new gas tank!


           Yes, Scott does have a few to old trucks here : -- a 1955.1 Chevy 6500 series with an additional 2 foot frame stretch; a 1963 Chevy K-20; a 1948 Chevy 1.5-ton Loadmaster; another 1948 Chevy 1.5-ton Loadmaster (double your pleasure ); a 1951 Chevy 1.5-ton Dump Truck; and acquired from a Stovebolter "Bubba," the 1955 1st Series Chevy 5700 COE; a 1954 Chevy 6500 2-Ton; a 1953 and a 1956 Ford F800 -- something to plow with (and I bet he has others ) ~~ Editor
