1947 First Series 3600 3/4-Ton

From Mikael :

           I am from Sweden and I have a 1947 first series Chevrolet 3600 model (3/4-ton ? ~ Editor). The truck was made in Sweden at General Motors Nordiska AB sold the truck new in Sweden.

           You wonder how I get parts? I take many parts from old cars and trucks. An example is the cab heater and fan. I also took the brake parts and generator come from an old Volvo. So now, the truck is 12 volt. I can get new parts at special shops, but they don't have so much parts to trucks before 1950. So I make parts or repair them.

           Photos: driver's side - rear - coming up the road (great pix!) - neat fender shot (another good look at the grille!) - engine - another view of the engine compartment - nice shot from the rear.

           I live in a small village in northern Sweden, and work as heavy truck repairmen.

           I noticed those cab-mounted lights and those air horns mounted on the cab -- these are all not stock items. Are the air horns installed to clear sheep off the road ??

           I see that someone has been welding some patch panels on the fenders. I like the paint job by Mother Nature. Usually a 3/4-ton doesn't have dually rear tires. I wonder if your truck is a 1-ton or larger. That's a very different flat deck on your truck. Are those trailer fenders?

           Hope we can get additional information for us inquisitive minds ... as you get a chance! ~~ Cheers, Mike "Burgandybolt" Allen / Stovebolt Welcome (Panel) Wagon
