Newb great site I can see this being full of information. I just purchase a 54 3100 was in same family in small town in WY (grocery store truck) since 1965. Very original not sure how much to do to it. Frame off sound good but truck just seems to have so much character (wife named her Tater) thinking about just cleaning her up for now. I charged up the 6 volt overnight drained the gas changed the oil and she fired up on a couple of turns
Not sure how to post pics to large it says thanks

You will have to resize your photos to post directly here. If you can’t do it, use an off site host like Imgur and post links.

Welcome to the 'bolt. I usually email my pictures to myself since my I-phone offers to resize them before you hit send.

Another quality post.

Welcome! Sounds like you got yourself a nice original truck. I would start out like you mentioned by just cleaning it up some and driving it that way for a while. As you get used to it you will decide whether or not you want to leave it that way or fix it up some.
Looking forward to seeing your pictures.

Welcome to Stovebolt. Love the pickup. Just get it to go and whoa and drive it. It'll talk to you as you go along and be patient and take time to think about what you'd like to do. Enjoy the history and preserve the history.....see you around the garage.

I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile
