Hello to all I just registered not too long ago and thought I'd introduce myself. My name is Adam and I live in Ratliff City Ok. I'm new to the old chevys but have had an old International for some time now. I just recently acquired a 63 Chevy 2 ton fire truck that I'll be picking up this weekend in Crossville Illinois. I have also purchased a 55 Chevy 6500 flatbed here locally. For $50 I couldn't go wrong with it. The firetruck has a newly rebuilt engine and is in really good shape. I have wanted a firetruck for a long time and my wife bought this one for me. The 55 has a straight 6 that is locked up but the body is in great shape. I am not sure if I'll fix the 6 or try to drop a SBC in it. I am hoping to use it to haul hay or my tractor or scout. I apprieciate all the information you all have here and look forward to sharing my projects with you.
