From Donnie:

           Here is my new, all original 1948 Chevrolet Loadmaster short flatbed. She has her original 235, low pressure 235 with a 4 speed, 2 speed rear-end. She’s got the short hoist bed, with a p.t.o.

           I have the original Owner's Manual and two sets of keys. Everything works on this ol’ gal and the 6 volt system 235 purrs like a kitten.

           The paint is also original on this old truck, just buffed it out a little. I plan on redoing the brakes all the way around and rebuild wheel cylinders, master cylinder, etc. I plan on driving her around town when I retire in five years. It'll be fun to haul the kids around town on a hay ride and in the town parade once a year. Still trying the make the wife see her potential.

           The day I brought her home (June 25), I was grinning from ear to ear as I pulled her up the drive way. I know I'll be asking a ton of big bolt questions in the forum. It's an awesome feeling puttering down the road, sitting waaayyyy up high in the old Bolt.

           Thanks for listening and all the help from this site. Still grinnin', even at 35-40 mph! More pics to follow on a photo bucket site.
