Hi all, just joined here after viewing a few posts here and there. My father and I purchased a 1950 chevy 3100 5 window a month or so ago with the intent of it being a project car to keep him busy. He's been looking for an AD 5 window since we saw one on the side of a road during a family vacation when I was younger. We finally managed to find one at a decent price, and it turned out to only be two towns over. So far its been running great, minus some gunk in the fuel line that needed to be sorted out. Personally I have a 1963 Glastron v142 boat, 1963 Mercury 500 50hp, and a 1963 Gator/Champ trailer that I've been slowly (very slowly) restoring. Hopefully, within the next few years we can get the truck towing the boat around to meet-ups and what not.

Thanks for the warm welcomes. So to answer a few of the questions that popped up my login handle came from a song, I just started using it and it stuck. Located in north Jersey. As for the condition of the truck, we managed to get the service records back until 1999. It looks like sometime before that someone did a repaint/restoration over the original yellow paint. There are some paint chips, scratches, paint bubbles, grey-ed wooden bed, etc but no huge glaring structural issues. Given it was a decent price for a 5 window and so close it was almost imposible to say no. For the most part I think the plan is to use it and fix what breaks for now, but he might go for a full frame off when he retires.
