Well I've been here long enough. Figured I should start documenting any and all progress of my truck. A 1947 chevrolet thriftmaster 3/4 ton I'll start from the beginning. My wife's grandfather passed away a few years back and told her he wanted me to have his truck. Apparently his father "ol' boppy" bought it new back in 1947ish and they used it as a work Truck on their farm until 1988. From then on it just sat in a barn in western KS until present day. Well a couple years went by as I didn't have the space to work on it. Just last year I moved to Orlando do for a new job and moved into a new house with a nice small garage. I gave BenD a call and he delivered it safe and sound. Definitely a cool dude. Unfortunately the 3600 was too long for my garage and so began my summer of working on a truck in the Florida sun in my driveway. Engine was seized. So I did a little magic with a quite a bit of help from the great wizards here on the hamb and freed it up. Replaced the plugs. Fuel pump carb and fluids and it didn't even think twice to fire up. Now it's off to upgrading the brakes since the drums are obsolete and hard to come by. Got a front axle from a 41 delivery truck which is compatible for a disc brake conv. And got a firebird rear end which should help with gearing and brakesystem as well. Currently just saving up some cash to get new front lowering leafs and brake conversion for the front and rear axle flip kit for the rear. I'll start updating my progress and hangups on this thread. Thanks for taking interest if your interested in seeing how fast I can burn cash. First couple of pics are of the truck in its current state and the last is my current hangup. Busted oil filter line. Not the worst that could happen since they're 20 bucks.
