Seems to be solid. Took a day to remove the drums and front hubs.

1955 3100 Series 1. Commercial half ton. The truck is Serial number 001992 so I surmise it was the 992nd truck built.
Is there a list of parts for the emergency (Parking) brake? The truck has been stripped of all the components. Is there a company that makes the parts in the USA? Thank you.

new guy, again, since this is the welcome center, technical questions should be addressed in the garage forums.

Many parts are reproduced by aftermarket vendors like JimCarter, Classic Parts, Chevs of the 40's, the Filling Station and many more. Since some have parts vehicles, or have modded them out you may have good luck by posting your needs in the Parts Wanted Forum....and they'll probably be less expensive!

Take some time, look over the site, read tech tips ect and enjoy the fun and journey with the best truck folks there are!

Oh...Welcome to Stovebolt. We ARE here to help.....since a lot of us work and do other things it may take a day or two.
See you around the garage.

I see your in my neighboring state. If your up toward Spartanburg give me a shout. Hot dogs and Pepsi on me!

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

Welcome! I like 55-1st Series trucks. The last and best of the Advance-Design with some features of the soon to be released 2nd Series. Many consider the end of the torque-tube to be a great advantage, especially as it relates to changing transmissions, adding overdrive, changing engines, etc.
