Hello to all the fellow restorers. I have a 51 Chevy short bed, Deluxe Cab, 235 6 Cyl.. I bought the pickup from the original owner in 1975 for $400. I bought it then because I can remember as a little kid, thats the same kind of pickup my dad farmed with. He even had it rigged to run on propane back then. Anyway,I went into the Navy and made a career out of it. I drove my 51 from West TX to San Diego, back to TX and back to Ca. again, then transferred to Whidbey Island, Wa., sufffled it around on a few ferrys and into Canada. Talk about a work horse, Old Red is still churning. However, working on restoring it. My brother did a overhaul on it a number of years ago. But had to let is sit a few years during in betweens. Just fininshed having valv job done, and replacing push rods.Got the moter running smoothly again, now Im working on other aesthtics of the beast.
