1951 Chevrolet Truck 1/2 Ton

1951 Chevrolet 1/2 Ton, Short Box

Truck was picked up from a small town near Sioux Falls, SD early in December. This is another truck that was used on a US Air Force Base. Overall, it has great patina with some really neat markings. This would be a build where we would definitely want to keep the body as is (fix the dings where needed), but keep the patina and original uniqueness.
