The '49 Chevrolet pickup off frame restoration was moved from the home shop to the shop bay just a quarter mile NE of the Joplin EF-5 tornadno Nov of 2010. The home and shop did not fair well in May of 2011. The new home and repaired shop welcomes the Family and the 3/4 ton. The selected blue was the Monaco 387. The paint shop suggested the upgrade 2011 Moroccan Blue GCT wa682R. The fun stuff begins when some BTU's are installed in the igloo cool shop. I am still the novice at the computer, but hope I have been able to post a pic of the project I spent a year rebuilding the 216,body and long bed. If the link does not work, some advice on posting pics would be appreciated.

It does appear that my link does not work. I will seek one of the post that will advise me how to post pics. I would like for all members to see the results of the efforts I put into bringing this old iron back. Will continue all detail when the heater is installed in the shop.

Above is a link on how to show us your photos

Sounds like a survivor truck and it would be nice to see your pic's

If you still have trouble, post up in the I.T. Short bus section of the forum

Good luck

You'll probably need to choose a picture hosting service such as Photobucket, upload the pictures there, and post a link (not the actual picture) on the forum. I use Hunt 101 as my pic host- - - -unlimited pics and no charge for the service!

It is an interesting story and we'd love to see pictures. But since this thread has turned into a picture tutorial I'm moving it.

You can not link to photos on your computer. You must up load them to a host. When you get that done please repost in General Truck Talk.

This is the link of the album. I took a few images of the project. My flash did not work on the paint image. I will add to my 'album' of all detail later. I added .095 sheet iron to the inside / outside of the long bed. The paint shop did a fantastic job hiding the many tack welds. Each piece was sheered to specs and tacked to original bed. The two outside panels between the two stake pockets look like raised picture frames. If one gets down to the nitty gritty to check it out, it is not easy to see the 7 pieces that were added. The original tailgate will do just fine for now. All original, but the patriotic accessory rims. Bringing back old iron is what I do, it is who I am when I was born as a gearhead over 7 decades ago. Yesterday, my cardiologist gave me a thumbs up on my health and told me to remain active. My reply, "I'm gone'a do that". I seek the panel truck.

The photo posting was a small part of the thread. The general discussion of trucks with emphasis on body work and paint doesn't belong in the 'Bus. Since Cletis doesn't want it in GTT I guess I'll move it to the Paint & Body Shop.

I have a good idea of the emphasis of the discussion and the thread it belongs in. The Paint/Body thread will work out just fine when members inquire about the '59 battery tray on the '49 firewall. The re-located Deluxe heater is in the works.

Nice truck!!

Did you do any mods to the cab? I see the windshield division bar missing.

thanks

Mods to the cab was the mounting of the '59 battery tray,blocking off the heater motor hole and core holes. Floor board mod over original battery access.

The cab has mounts and core holes for the Deluxe design heater to mount. The windshield will be the two piece. The windshield glass and back glass will be installed by a glass specialist. The original framed door glass is in great condition and this is a project I feel comfortable doing.
