Found another stovebolt that I couldn't pass up. Needs a lot but it's not going to be yard art anymore. The wife wasn't real impressed but the time to buy something is when you find it. Drug it home yesterday, just thought I'd share it.

How'd I do?

Would you consider taking a picture of the front brake rods and levers on backing plate? We have one with none. Thank you; Evan

My grandfather hauled beer from Milwaukee and St. Louis to Nashville with a couple of those rigs (34 model) set up as tractor-trailers. Mechanical brakes on the tractors, and NO brakes on the trailers. Later they converted the tractors to vacuum boosters on the mechanical brake systems.

I can do that Coilover. I actually bought 2. The other is just a frame from a 1930 pickup. Judging by the size of the rear end / brakes I assume the frame is actually a 1/2 T. Couldn't pass it up for the price. Paid $17.50 for the frame!

The 31' is out at my property, it'll be a few days before I can get back there. But if it'll help I'll get pics from the frame it's behind my shed.

Hotrod; it amazes me what these old trucks were used for. Not sure how they've even survived, with all the wood for a cab you'd think it'd be just gone! This one needs a ton of TLC but it seems to mostly be all there. The front crossmember has been welded back together some time in the past but the frame hasn't been broke in two yet!

I'm going to try and keep this as it original as physically possible. Mechanical brakes and all. It would just be fun to put around town in.

If anyone recognizes that hood I'd like to know from where. All my research before and after the auction I can't seem to find another hood with vents like those. Also the radiator and grill, probably all came from the same donor. Did these old stovebolts have a hand crank option?

There was a County Mountie in Kentucky who would spend all day watching a hill near his town, and weigh any truck that had to drop down to 1st. gear to pull the hill. Then he would fine anybody who was even slightly overweight, or solicit a bribe. One of those beer trucks could pull much better than the other one. They would load the weak one with an exactly legal load, and while it was getting weighed, the other rig would sail on by in 2nd. gear- - - - -with a big overload!

I believe the hood is from a 1932 chevrolet cabriolet deluxe, a model I've always admired.

I agree the hood is 1932 passenger car. The Deluxe cars had chrome louvers while the Standard had painted.

Yes, they all had hand cranks as standard issue...

Well that hood appears to fit like a glove! Thanks, I'll look that up I'm missing one chrome "wing".

I have some pics of the brake levers. Tricky things to get a good angle on. I'll take some from the big truck and see if they're the same.
