Does the foot-pedal washer also activate the wipers (they could in 54/55st; but, they might not "automatically" activate the wipers, if it is a 1953 or earlier unit).

No matter, you have a very nice truck.

Gotta say it...that is a nice truck. It is nice to see well done 54.there doesnt seem to be alot out there. Thanks for sharing the pics.re:the comment on oem optinal chrome grill, that is truue. My 54 , a U.S truck has a chrome grill. Ive had some who tell me, not possible.. but there it is. Ive redone the truck 30 years ago but havent touched the grill. Altho now it needs a rechrome.

This car was always on my list something to purchase and restore Took several years before I decided I was going to make a purchase. Probably the most interesting anb the most frustrating car I ever restored, wasn’t in like the average foreign car that I am grown a custom to restoring and maybe that’s why it made it appealing was it unrefined air about it.

I especially like the painted grill that doesn’t call attention to the bull nose the 54’s are known for. The blue patterned seat cover is a nice, unexpected touch. The pristine engine bay is a nice home for that beautiful 235! Great job!

Beautiful 54. I'm rather fond of them since 54 is my birthyear. I think the 54 chrome grilles are uncommon, if not rare. I have seen more 55.1 trucks with chrome grilles than 54s.
Again, great truck. Enjoy it.

How did you find the chrome strip (or facsimile thereof) that goes around the joint where the cab meets the body?

I want to paint my Stovebolt in 2-tone ivory top and turquoise body (like a '57 car) and I need that belt line or whatever it is called that goes along the seam. Can you recommend someone that makes that or is it a generic thing most good body shops can replicate?
