My Dad and I measured the bed length and it was around eighty-eight inches long, each running board bracket looks original with original bolts and everything there. I'm still learning more about this pickup, but I'm still learning a whole lot more as I take it apart! smile Thanks for stopping by!

Well, a lot of little stuff has been going on, torching off the completely rusted pins on the shock absorbers, and replacing them, replacing all the brake lines, preping for sanding and the big paint job, getting all the parts I needed to paint them when we do, (tail-gate, center strip on the front grill, etc.) And having a ball! smile And well, I was told this was a 1/2 ton, but I used the decoder on stovebolt and found that my pikcup is a 3/4 ton with a 122 inch frame base and was manufactured in Oakland, CA! This answers goneagains question about me having three running boards braces and him having two on his 38. So I'm finding more and more new things about this pickup so I can't wait if there's more that I will find out! smile Anyway, just keeping ya'll posted and hopefully we'll get started painting next week. Thanks for stopping by!

Well, just got a phone call, and the machinist said the motor has general wear, but nothing broken, craked, or unfixable. So he'll get started on that while I'm trying to get started on the sanding and preping. There are no rust throughs on anything here, just surface rust here and there. My deadline is before January 1, 2011. I'm on day 33 since it was all together, I'm trying to spend at least an hour at the end of every day, whether it's 9 or midnight! smile Anyway, thanks for stopping by-keep you posted on progress!

Goodness! There is so many color choices it was hard to choose which ones I wanted. SO I decided going with blue and white, but I won't say the rest where it will go (it will be a surprise! smile ) Anyway, I finally got all the primer, clear coats, paints for chassis and body. Hopefully this week we'll get started on it with just a few more mechanical things to fix on the frame and we're good to go! smile Keeping you up to date on what's happening around here, thanks for looking in! smile

Hello all, well, it's slow coming now, doing little things where it would be easier to do now that when it's all back together. Have all new shock absorbers, brake lines http://i1142.photobucket.com/albums/n611/19Chevy38Guy/38%20Chevy/IMG_1508.jpg , cab mount parts, and hopefully today I'll meet with the painter who is excited to paint the pickup. And going through everything making sure I replaced anything that I needed to replace. Motor is coming along, I talked to the motorist yesterday and he almost had the head finished and they're about half-way going through the entire motor. Things are coming along but slowly right now. Thanks for stopping by and I'll be keeping you up to date! smile

Well, we talked a lot about what I could do and Soda Blasting came up and wow, it's pretty amazing what baking soda can do! smile Here's the website of the place where I'm going to have it done: http://www.precisionsodablasting.net/SodaBlasting/Main.html

So that is how I'm going to get my pickup sanded. I talked with the guy and he said it would take him only a day to completely do my pickup since it is all in pieces, and he would come up from Carson City to soda blast my pickup! You can read on the website what it cleans and so forth. Just trying to find a person who can paint everything at one shot instead of taking piece by piece to the painter I was considering.

So now Iím hoping my time will be cut down big time from having to avoid sanding all the rust off the pickup! Right now Iím looking at my Great Grandpa Billís 1956 Chevy pickup, I havenít seen it yet, but Iím trying to get some time to go and look at it! Grandpa was telling me it had a 235 in it and was a sweet running pickup. Great Grandpa Bill didnít buy it new, but he bought it when he was close to eighty and had it until he died when he was around ninety years old. So weíll see how that will turn out. Iíll send some pictures of it when I get a chance to show you what it looks like.

And Iím also considering two other Chevy pickups in the area I might buy to fix up and sell, possibly. Pictures of those will be coming as well. So a lot has been going on and more to come! Thanks for stopping by and have a great Thanksgiving! smile
