1950 Chevrolet 3100 (Papa's Truck)
Last updated Mar 27, 2013
This fine one-owner '50 Chevy pickup was purchased by an Italian grocer in San Jose, CA when he returned from WWII. It has remained in his family through 3 generations and likely will continue to be a family heirloom for generations to come.
This sweet truck is being resto-modded into a nice street cruiser. My son and I are building it with a full Mustang II IFS, power rack & pinion steering, a Chevelle 10-bolt rear and 4-wheel disc brakes. From the outside, it will appear completely stock (though, lowered a bit), but will have the heart of a new crate smallblock and 700r4 overdrive automatic transmission.
