This Song Is Dedicated To My Ole Truck

My Ole Truck:

My little toy is a 1950 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup. I bought it already modified with a '70 Firebird front clip, Chevy 350, automatic tranny, power steering, and power brakes. The 4.11 rear end came from a '65 GTO. Things that I have done to the ole girl are listed down the page aways.

Exterior color is an emerald green but the whole truck will need to be repainted someday (long ways down the road) as it was not done very well.


Modern tubular shock absorbers replace the lever-action type shocks. Drivers side cowl vent handle is flat steel, not maroon knob as in previous years. Last year for the driver's side cowl vent. Headlight frames remain chrome plated brass. Wiper knob is chrome plated as well. Hood side emblem show the name Chevrolet and 3100 for the 1/2 ton.
