Well, it is now road worthy.
About 600 miles on it.

Picture of exterior basically done:

Still working on interior. Headliner and door seals are in.
Still needs carpet and some other minor things wrapped up.

I will work on getting the galley updated when time allows.

Beautiful truck!! I'm with Alvin, I love the color. I know a lot of effort was put into it, but it must be so rewarding. Tell me that it is!?!?

Rewarding... Definitely!
The 327 engine developed an oil leak and suffered from a lack of power.
We decided to pull the 327 and are in the process of replacing it with a 383 SBC. Yea I know... The nostalgia of the 327 will now be gone.
Once we pulled the trigger on a 383 we found that just needed refreshed, there was no turning back.
The 383 came with a tru-trak serpentine system so we are also going electric fan and adding AC/Heat/Defrost to it at the same time.
The 327 is out, 383 is sitting ready to go in with a full roller custom cam, maintaining the EFI, ect.

Thanks for all the good advice and praises.
I will provide more updates later.

Hello,
I am putting together a 41 I purchased from a hot rod shop, do you or do you know of anyone with pictures of the bed. I am looking to see pictures of how many bed rails are needed to put in my oak flooring.
Thank you
Dan

dshea, this poster hasn’t been around in 1 1/2 years. No longer active. You will be better served by starting your own thread in the Making a Stovebolt Bed Forum. It’s never a good idea to dredge up an old thread and tack on to it.

If you look at page 2 of my photobucket pages there is an original bed photo of a 46 1/2 ton.

Is this the photo?

What was the original color of the bed wood?
