Well, over the weekend, I was finally able to join the club. I purchased a 1949 Chevrolet One Ton dually. So now instead of being a bystander absorbing information, I can be an active participant asking questions that I have personal experience with.

Thanks to all who have helped previously, and thanks in advance to all those who will help in the future.

Pictures here:

aggie jon, looks like a good catch you made there. Now the real fun begins. We're here. Just let us know when you need some help... or counseling smile

Be sure to take plenty of pictures, and post here!!

I'd rather walk and carry a Chevy hub cap than ride in a Ferd.
I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you smile

I told my wife that this is my counseling! I am going to try to get it to crank and run tomorrow. Lets hope so.

Its pretty well together. Biggest things that I can see are a pretty nice crinkle vertically in the cab pillar between the door and the front fender. The other is the cab roof. Its got some pretty good sized dents. Beyond that, the wood on the flatbed is still in good shape. Looks to be original.

She looks like she was used on a farm for 61 years. So nothing out of the ordinary.

Beyond that, I think it is going to need a vacuum canister. The one that is there is pretty rotted out. Any ideas on where to find one, or what will make a good replacement? Or how to fix the one that I have. Its got lots of pinholes. I'm avoiding the urge to install an empty folgers coffee can.

This weekend I'll try and take some detailed pictures from all angles. Then get them uploaded. So glad to finally be a part of the "cool kids"!

Nice truck! Dents in the roof of a farm truck are pretty common. What's the vacuum canister for?

I have no idea. It is about 4" in diameter, 12" tall, mounts high on the passenger firewall, and hoses go through the firewall and under the dash. Maybe its not a vacuum canister. Maybe something for the heater? Haven't torn into it yet to see where it goes. hmmm. I'll get a picture to share w/ you guys.

Yeah, the roof has been a landing pad for numerous square bales, bags of feed, a good place to take a nap while waiting for another load of grain from the combine.
