Looks like you have a gem to start with. Must be a warm weather area truck, a real plus, since I cannot see where it has had a heater of any kind unless it was a Southwind gas heater. Firewall is unmolested and what I can see looks bone stock. These are getting hard to find---good luck.

Keep us updated on your progress.


Rob

That's my biggest worry too, is the welding. I'm trying to decide if it would be worth it to get a cheap MIG and get my skills up, or just farm out the work. I'm guessing with the costs of hauling out the parts it might even out :P.

Thanks coilover! I actually got a copy of the original title when it was purchased new in 1952, and it's been a Texas truck it's whole life. Lovett Motor Co. out of Seguin, TX! No heater, A/C, radio, or anything. Completely bone stock. The only "accessory" was 50 pounds of authentic TX soil! LOL!

Welcome. I never noticed before how the dealership placed their logo in front of the Chevrolet script on the hood, that's a great touch, I hope you keep it. Truck just needs some love, going to be a great project.

Hi TUTS 59. I am absolutely going to keep it. I’m really hoping I can take it somewhere to get it cleaned up and rechromed. I think it would be a great way to help preserve its history.
