More pictures of my old truck in Photobucket

From Tory :

Here is my 1953 Chevy 4400 "pickup" that I purchased on eBay. It was located in West Texas which was about a two hour drive from home. I trailered it back when the wife was out of town.

The old truck had been a farm truck with a flatbed since the 70's. Prior to that, it may have been an Army truck. The serial number is on the firewall, and I'm not sure if it's correct?

Currently, I am in the process of cleaning it up, replacing many parts, and converting it to an eight foot step side bed. To accomplish this, I shortened the frame and drive shaft.

I also upgraded the electrical system to 12 volt with a generator. It was in need of new rubber, so I installed a set of fresh 20 x 750 tires. I sandblasted and painted the wheels.

Under the hood, so far, the stock 216, with 4 speed are still performing great.

My future plans include keeping it looking like the 50's style, and making it fun to drive.
