Thumbs up A Vintage Blue Chevy

Please keep us posted .

My shop truck was a '46 3100 with a '57 235 in it for a few decades, it came to me with a 1938 three speed floor shift tranny, back in the 1970's it wasn't too hard to find a N.O.S. '41 ~ '46 Commercial tranny (floor shift & needle bearings in the cluster gear), swapped that in then drove the wheels off it .

Now I'm old so I bought a '69 C/10 with 250 & TH350, P.S. & P.B., the restoration shop ripped me off, it now looks great but doesn't run, I'm too broken down to finish it up and hope a guy I found will take it on this February .

Very few these days understand how sweetly old i6 powered Chevies run and drive .
