My wife and I had a 1937 Ford truck old school street rod and decided to tone it down a little and get more of a cruiser. We sold our 37 and it was a sad day when the fellow from Mexico Missouri drove off with it on his trailer. He had a long 6+ hour drive ahead of him to get back home. On the brighter side we had been looking for another truck for a long time and I have spoken to countless fellow and went and checked a few out and then came across this 1949 5 window 3100 pickup down in Kentucky just north of Bowling Green. We were headed to Gatlinburg Tennessee on vacation in a few days so we thought on the way back home we would swing by and take a look at the 49 to save us a 1 1/2 hr trip back to look the truck over. We took the 49 out for a test drive and I gave it a once over and my wife and I liked it so much I contacted the fellow the next morning and cut a deal. The 49 has much more room in the cab and we wanted AC and heat on our next truck as I think it was more needed than wanted as we are moving into retirement. We picked this truck up a couple months ago and I decided to drive it back home to Evansville, IN while my wife followed. What a nice unforgettable drive back home on a sunny day with little to no traffic at times. We are still checking the 49 out and making a few changes. Already had to change out the heater valve which was only a $39 piece from https://www.oldairproducts.com/ and my labor along with a few Advil. I think we are going to put bucket seats in once the weather gets nicer where I can walk the junk yards looking for something nice that will fit. We only had the truck for 2 days and went to our last cruise-in of the year and got top 25 out of 200+ entries. 2020 is going to be a fun year.

Be sure you make the photos public. Or, use our Stovebolt photo sharing program. Way easier.
