New member, I inherited a '51 Chevy 3100 from my father. Looking to keep the thing running and maybe add a couple upgrades... And maybe get around to fixing an oil leak

Thanks. No cure for the oil leak? No disagreement here. I'll have many, many questions.

Joe, welcome to the Stovebolt. There is no madness.....its stovebolt fever and one is never enough....thus, no cure for the madness.

The AD style pickup you have is a popular model. Lots of them made and thus parts can be obtained from many vendors. Congrats on your pickup and let us know if we can help.....which the best way is asking questions in the most appropriate garage forum.
Keep us posted.

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

My Dad was a mechanic, and it was his daily driver, so it's in good mechanical shape, even though it was parked and sitting for 3 years. New battery and it fired right up. Going to try to fix a few things and maintain it to give it to my son. Thanks for the welcome
