1938 Chevrolet Master Pickup (scarecrows mutiny)
Last updated Aug 15, 2013
1938 Chevrolet pickup - I bought it from a chicken farmer named Casey Jones - it was neglected and forgotten. It was full of 10 years of rat habitation both in the cab and in the engine bay.
I found a small brass key on the manifold of the 216 motor that I noticed had oil on the dipstick. Some marvel mystery oil a new coil some new 303 autolite sparkplugs - fresh gas and some tlc and the motor fired. The brass key turned out to be the petcock for the radiator that someone wisely removed so the block and the radiator wouldn't freeze. After all my loading hauling and handling I don't see how the key didn't fall off on the interstate.
Missing tires and rims I went to the pick/pull salvage and got some 14/15 inch rims. Some craigslist polished aluminum rims didn't really do what I wanted so they sit in the garage.
It didn't have a bed so I visited the local old car salvage guy and got a couple of bed sides for a 47-54 pickup. I can repurpose a set of teardrop rear fenders I have. [img][/img]
216 inline 6 - stromberg 1 bbl carb - 3 speed tranny - open headers (at the moment)
