jaffs, there are more than a few UK members. Here's a few of them: http://www.stovebolt.com/world.shtml#uk I think there's at least 20 or more. Maybe some of them will respond to your post.

Hi Mike firstly welcome,sorry I haven't responded sooner,I don't check in here as much as I should.

To be honest this forum isn't as active as it should be,probably more so at this time of year as most of us are out there enjoying driving and showing our trucks given our relatively short 'show season'.
Me included. grin
In fact mine is pretty much a daily driver these days.

I'm not sure if you partake in other social media such as Farcebook but there are UK specific Chevy truck/American car and parts pages on there.
I'll put some feelers out for you,I would dearly love a 5 speed in mine to but finances are a little shy at the moment.

What engine are you mating it to and I assume you will require a flywheel,clutch etc?

There are other UK based sites such as Rods 'n' sods,NSRA,Pistonheads etc that are aimed at the US/collector car market.
I actually used a partsfinder site to locate a small block and transmission for mine.
I got a response within 12 hours from a specialist breakers in Wigan and have since clocked over 3000+ relatively trouble free miles on my 'cut out' engine and box from an '81 Corvette.

A 3 or 4 speed auto gets old quick,we 'Brits' are too used to stirring cogs!

What 'Big bolt' are you awaiting?

I've definately got this truck thing in my blood ... my DNA sequence has torque settings

Hi there everyone.
I have just joined here and also joined the ranks of the Chevy Truck owners.
I have a 1938 Chevrolet Utility.
A full resto is needed but I'm sure I can handle that OK.

Not sure how to put up pics.

ps. I'm in New Zealand.

Welcome from the mainland smile

The '38 is a great truck and there are several parts suppliers around to help make you resto easy.

This is a no pics site , you have to post a link to some photo storage site like photobucket or tiny pic.

Looking forward to reading of your progress.

Info I have is there were only 6 of these built.
The NZ Air Force commissioned Chevrolet to build 6 in rhd and ship them to Christchurch NZ in late '38.
Still trying to get a bit more history on them.
I have never seen any like this anywhere else.
