Panel Truck Spare Tire

I have a rear fuel tank in my '51 Panel so I had to devise somewhere else to locate the spare tire. This simple mounting bracket from American Van Equipment secures it solidly, and helps counterbalance the loss of the original side tank to prevent the notorious "Chevy Lean" that our trucks always seem to develop.

Sorry, you can tell that the cargo compartment is the last thing on my truck to receive any detailing...eventually it will all be painted black and the wood refinished.

- If you have to stomp on your foot-pedal starter, either you, or your starter, or your engine, has a problem.
- The 216 and early 235 engine are not "splash oilers" - this is a splash oiler. []
