Hello to all. My name is Mike, I am new to this website. That said let me say a few things about myself, I, as a child have loved car's and trucks. The badging, the style of many dashboards from the 30's, 40's, and through the 60's
At 66 years of age I finally got the truck I always thought a good looker, which was GMC and Chevorlet AD. I have a 1948 GMC . But unlike the cars I have had this truck looks like it will be a challenge for my old mind, but no giving up! I intend to give it a 100% .
Seems my biggest problem is not Knowing a lot about figuring out half ton, 3/4 ton 3100 or just what it truly is. At any rate I hope too gain knowledge from folks who do know and have knowledge of these fine trucks.
Old Mike (Yankabilly)

Welcome

As far as figuring out whether it's a 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton, you can check the GM Heritage site for specific info.
According to this 48 Chevy Truck Info wheelbase on a 1/2 ton would be 116 inches, and a 3/4 ton would be longer.

Welcome to the Stovebolt. As Martin says, there is no cure so you may as well start looking for another truck while you work on the one you have!!!!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
