Hi all!
I've been lurking for a while and thought I would introduce myself and my 47 1 ton panel . I picked her up about a month ago and went to work. She's a pretty solid old truck with no rust, pretty complete, and all original. She was a well logging truck in her previous life. I kitted the carb and got it running but we have a long way to go before we go around the block. Anyway, you have a great group here and I'm sure I'll have a million questions.

Hi Les, welcome. That truck looks awesome! It sure does look complete and rust-free. Needless to say, mine was rusted out and some parts were beyond repair. Be sure to ask if you need help, that's what we are here for. Good luck!

Thanks Leo!
Your panel is one sweet looking ride! My old girl is fighting me tooth and nail right now. She doesn't want to be brought back to life without a good fight but I'll keep sweet talking her and maybe we can establish some sort of workable relationship.

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

Thanks Achipmunk. I took a look at your panel and all I can say is WOW! what an ambitious project! Your workmanship is superb. I was thinking about street rodding mine but she is so complete I can't help but keep her stock. BTW... thanks for the tip! I am the guy that purchased the panel seats from that fellow in Louisville that had them on Craigslist :)

Hi Les,

Welcome to the 'bolt. Great group here, very helpful.

I grew up in Rock Springs and just picked up my grandfather's '37 1/2 ton from Rock Springs last year.

Welcome.

My Grandfather bought it new and Dad drove it through highschool. The 3rd & 4th generations put it back on the road on 8/8/2015!

Very cool truck Justin! I had a '37 years back when I lived in Grand Junction. I loved that truck! I kicked my own butt many times for selling it.
