This my year for really getting in gear on restoring my fathers old 1949 chevy deluxe panel.
starting point pic

The story of this truck goes way back. Back in the early 70's my hippy parents got the truck off some other hippies in New Mexico. At this point the truck had all ready been to Alaska and down to Mexico some where. My parents conceived me . Possibly in the truck. We then toured the country as a family in the truck. Eventually we settled down in upstate NY. After my father passed the truck sat for a long time. 30 years or so later the truck is finally ready as am I to restore this old beast.
I have much to update. I am at the shop today so I might not update till tonight.

Your parents probably crossed paths with Tim another fan of the "counter culture" and NY panel owner.

Seeing as that's how life started for you, you need to take your final ride in it as well. Panels work well for hauling pine boxes and getting both hatched and dispatched in the same truck sounds fitting.

Good luck with the truck.

So I guess my account here has restrictions on posting images and links. I guess I'll show you guys what I'm up to soon.

I am ready for some photo links, for sure!
Maybe some of your folks using it back in the seventies!
That was my era.
In 1968 I had a '55.5 Chevy panel.

Josh,

You have as many different sheet metal colors as I had on my 1948 1/2 ton panel truck back in 1969.

I hope the freezing rain does not keep me from visiting you tonight.

So, sounds like Tim can see the pics, but the link doesn't show for me.
