Default New life for the '30 Chevy

After catching up on Soltz's bug I'm inspired to do a build thread on my '30 Chevy truck. A little background....

Been working on this for a little over two years and this has always been my favorite body style, having driven away from our wedding in '81 in my first hot rod- a '30 model A. Disclaimer- There's a lot of stuff I don't know (I know enough to be dangerous) and like to hear ideas and suggestions. I grew up a red-head so I learned real quick one is better off not to get offended easily!

It will take me a bit of time to get caught up to date so hope you enjoy what has been a crazy fun project for me. Hopefully the learning curve posting stuff won't burnish my brain too bad!

How I found this (1 1/2 hours from my house) is a cold beer around the campfire story but suffice to say, this rascal came home with me along with a good Texas title!

When I got it back to the house I just spent some time looking and soaking it in. What in the world was I going to do with it???

It is a 1.5 ton, completely original with 57,000+ miles on the speedo. Started taking things apart/cleaning it up some (if you could call it that). Another cold beer and lots more looking over the next couple of weeks...

After a short period of time went by, I started seeing a picture of what I wanted. My younger years as a truck driver had some influence to be sure. This was destined to be my new daily driver and trailer puller. Yes- 70 mph down the highway with a load.

I'll try to get y'all caught up to date quickly as possible!

Love it! Great to see a non Ford for a change (not that I'm dissing Fords, there's just so few old Chevys left )
