Hey y'all, just signed up. I grew up on a farm, where we had a pair of AD Chev grain trucks.. one was a '49 that had a shorter bed with Badger Omaha racks. I used this truck year round for my driver from age 14 thru 17. The body style brings back great memories. I've always wanted a 47-53 3100, and now at the ripe old age of 59, I finally own one. I've had it a whole month. '53 with the OE frame, old school M2 front end, healthy 327, TH350, & an 8.5" 10 bolt. The truck was built in the late 90's, and from what I can tell... done pretty well. She drives great, & runs like a top. Since I didn't buy it from the builder, I'm learning the content of this truck as I go. I wish I could see inside the small block and know what pistons etc.. but oh well. Anyway, I'm going to have a lot of questions. Good to be here!
