1933 Chevy trucks used the hood, fenders, and a painted version of the 1932 passenger car grille shell. I suspect your truck is a '33. Look at some websearch images of '31, '32, and '33 Chevy trucks. I think the mystery will be solved. Neat looking truck. Any I.D. tags anywhere?

Either way. Very cool to get a truck that has been untouched for this many decades!

The previous owner was pretty convinced it's a 31. But.. I'm not versed in real early pickups. Just learning! There's a tag, but not much left on it. Someone just HAD to have a hole there! I'll do some digging around, see what I can find. Hard to tell much difference between 31-33. I've read fenders, cowls, and hoods are different, but I can't much tell from pics. The fenders I got with the 30' frame look very similar to the fenders on the 31'.

I would like to find front rims to match the rear. Not a huge fan of the spokes. All in due time.

The "1CB.." on the serial number plate indicates Flint, 1933 1/2 ton truck. Clearly the rear axle is from a larger truck but it is curious that a big truck would come with wire spoke front wheels. Perhaps the truck is a 1/2 ton that had the rear axle switched? More investigation needed regarding the the front axle, frame size, etc.

I think you did great! Almost as pretty as my '35 (Qubie is prettier 'cause she's mine). I keep my mechanical brakes adjusted properly and I generally have no problem driving and stopping here in the WNC mountains. There was one time tho; I had 980 pounds of broken concrete blocks in the back that I was taking to the landfill. I was on a steep downhill stretch with a T intersection at the bottom, and if I had not been in the proper (low) gear or if I had a weak right leg, I would have sailed through that stop and off the road. As long as you're empty and drive sane, you should have no problems. If you have a load, be extra careful.

My '35 came with a hand crank. It stores under the seat along with the jack, which uses a different crank.

Grandpa's beer hauling 1935 Chevy tractor-trailer rigs got retrofitted with a vacuum booster for the original mechanical brake system, a cylinder that basically made the driver's right leg stronger- - - -still had no trailer brakes, however! They hauled bottles and kegs from Milwaukee and St. Louis to Nashville in the mid-1930's. Sadly, no pictures of those rigs survived!
