1937 Chevy 1/2-ton Pickup Truck

From Michael :
Hello! Here are some photos of my 1937 Chevy 1/2-ton pickup truck. I found this truck on the Internet. I didn't really choose this year in particular. It was for sale and I happened to like it more than I liked my money so I bought it!!
I have owned it about three years now and it was previously registered in the state of Illinois.
This truck originally came from Ohio and was in barn fresh condition. The truck was almost 100% rust and dent free. I don't know much about the truck other than the body was in fantastic condition with just a couple of very minor dings.
I had the truck painted professionally by a local painter and I personally did all the rest of the work.
The truck had a new wiring harness installed but not hooked up to much. I had to painstakingly hook a hot wire to one end of a wire under the dash and scour the truck with a test light to find the other end of the wire! It took some time but I figured out all the lights, brakes, horn, brake lights, heater, dash lights etc. I also added a turn signal kit for safety using some Harley Davidson lights as directionals on the front!!
I repainted the truck and have a few interior things to finish up this winter.
I also own a 1913 Ford model T touring car which is also a lot of fun.
