So sorry I haven't gotten back to you. I have some how missed your question. Hope you have come along way with your truck since you left your comments. I received my truck about 35yrs ago and had to put a different front end in it to drive. Started with first in floor board and cab corners. Then the frame, then the cab and wiring. And so on Bear

There's a WHOLE LOT TO SEE in those pics. Lots of details that can get overlooked. The decals: THRIFTMASTER 235, the steering knob, the spotlight, the dice, etc.

There's an old song with lyrics that say:

"little things mean alot" and this presentation just verifies those words.

Well done.....

No doubt one of the sweetest looking Chevy pick ups ever and thank you for keeping that die hard Chevy in line six in it. After all that sweet six belongs there. Cheers.

Thanks I really loved the 50s cars and trucks. I still have the 6 volt system. The windshield wiper system was ordered when who ever was the first owner bought it. I had quite a time finding a original jar but was fortunate that the truck still had the floor board foot pump that pumped air to the jar and then to the windshield . sprayer’s. Never have ever seen another one. Love your car, enjoy this summer that’s coming up. Bear
