From Adam :

           Here are a few starter pics of my truck for the Gallery. It is a 1950 Chevy Old Navy Truck.

           My first guess on the year of the truck was a '47. I had no paperwork on it. I finally located the serial number and was able to get the paint off the tag. I ran it through the decoder on the site to find out that it is actually a 1950. The previoius owner had closed up some of the body holes (i.e. gas filler neck hole in the cab) and that led me to believe that it was a '47. It is actually a 1950 built in May in Atlanta, Geogia.

           The truck had 3100 badges on the hood. I was told that I could have it as long as I hauled it away. It was not totally free -- I paid a guy $100 to help me pull it on a trailer. It was quite an experience pushing the truck through the mall!

           It is basically just a shell (i.e. body and frame). All of the major organs have been removed from it. Pictures: dash | body de-chromed | getting down to bizniz

           I have a long exciting road ahead, but have a solid frame and body to start with. I am planning a mild custom. Not much body work in the future -- just cleaning up the lines a bit.

           I plan on putting a Chevy 350 in and all the included upgrades -- power steering, power brakes, all that good stuff.

           Right now it has no engine or transmission in it. This is a blessing in disguise because I don't have to spend countless hours undoing just so I can redo.

           I am in the Navy, stationed in Everett, Washington.



           Adam, looks like this will be something special! You will notice there are A LOT of either active duty or retired military people on Stovebolt. A few guys have kids over in Iraq right now, and we actually have a few that drop us a line from over there as well. The boys are going to love another Navy guy around here! Stay warm. ~ Gallery Gal
