In 2011 we headed to Maple Creek, Saskatchewan to pick up this 1951 Chevy 5 window truck.  It needed a lot of work, but everything was there — well, almost everything.  It didn’t have a power train so I bought a 1979 Chevy with a 350 in it and automatic transmission.  I had to shorten the frame  fifteen inches so everything would fit.

I did all of the work in my garage, even the painting.  I installed a sliding back window and a sun roof. The wiring was the toughest part!!   It took a year to finish it, and if it wasn’t for my friend, Dennis, I’m sure it would have taken way longer.  (Thanks, Dennis!)
