I have been working on my own vehicles since I was a kid. I have always had an imagination, allowing me to think outside the box and make things my own, via customization, with little to no money. This truck has helped me learn many new skill sets with fabrication and welding.
Saw it on the road by my house as I was on my way to rent a truck to go to the lumber yard.
I couldn’t work in the computer generation and always had an interest in older trucks. My Pop shared the same interest. He is the one who told me that this was the truck for us to work on. He will be 80 this year and still loves to help me work on the “Ol’ Girl”
Bought it in CA on New Year’s Day 2004. Had it shipped to UK and then to Northern Ireland.
I am just about finished with this build and just in need of some cosmetic stuff as far as gauges and carpet. I plan on attending car shows this year and put this truck to use.
Cooper is 15 years old. He loves cars/trucks from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s. He’s not scared to get his hands dirty.
I started this project with my dad when I was 14.
I’m currently 21 and close to graduating from college with a degree in electrical engineering.
It had never been wrecked and had most all original parts with original motor, so it is an all numbers matching car, not missing any major parts. It just needed lots of TLC.
It’s been a long road so far and I’m not sure when it will be done but I love every second of it. My son’s have learned a lot as will as myself. This project is about time with family the car is just a by product. It will probably never be 100% done and I’m OK with that.
I wanted to build a 1934-36 Chevrolet “high-top” open wheel truck. I found that they were quite rare and usually too far away. High shipping costs and also wanted to see what I was buying were my concerns.
