So... I just sold my restored 1946 2 ton to a member on here and it is in great hands in Arizona. I also sold my 1940 GMC 1 1/2 ton this week and I found a 1938 1 1/2 ton on the local CL and I was able to work out a trade for a piece of equipment that I didn't need or have a lot of money in. It is surprisingly in very good condition. Not sure if I will keep it or sell it. I will at least find a starter to bolt on it and see if I can make it run!

It is very solid. Probably the least amount of rust of any old truck I have ever owned. Grill is in poor condition.

Looks like a cool old truck. I love Big Bolts! Hope you can get her running. Keep us posted.

Yours is the 1st 38 I've seen with a divider in the windshield. Does it appear to have been added after it left the factory?

It looks to be factory. I own a 40 GMC 1 1/2 ton, a 41 Chevy COE 2 ton and just sold a 46 2 ton. I don't have a lot of experience with these "older" trucks. I have a few other projects to get wrapped up before I touch this one. I was thinking about selling this one as well, but after looking it over today, there are a lot of features that I really like about it that I haven't seen on the later trucks. Just little details with how the doors open, how they close, body lines etc.

My big search will be a grill. I might make one....

Looks like somebody was a pretty good shot both the windshield Bullet holes look dead center 😁🎩
Got all the paperwork done on the 46 official historical Arizona plates on it and it is in good hands had fun driving it down to the DMV office and back definitely different from my 2016 Dodge 1 ton 🎩
