Re: How about some pics of 47-59

a 48' should have "thriftmaster" label, maybe somewhere down the line the hood or emblem was changed. Also filler neck wouldn't have been in cab. What the history on this truck?

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

No where near original, but that is fine by me; not a purist. Title and tag is '48, but much of the body has been replaced over time. The body has been transferred to what has been identfied as a '78 Silverado frame. I can't tell, but that is what the seller advised. They have worked the springs to get it lower, but I am still surprised how low it actually sets. Ran pretty good after a tune up, but the fuel filter immediately turned rust color. Wasn't crazy about the tank in the cab, so I have yanked it am awaiting a Boydwelding tank to relocate behind the rear axle. Other than stripping the interior, this will be my first major project on the new toy. Everything will be a first for me. The truck is a looker from a short distance, but the paint and bodywork ultimately is less than perfect. The previous owner had a facination with self tapping screws, so there are unnecessary holes and excessively long screws throughout. Again... something to play with. I have only driven her 3 times and all times were met with thumbs up and multiple conversations with people of all ages.

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

1948, thanks man. Yeah really its not a big deal, 9 outta ten folks wouldn't know the difference in 47-53 trucks 54 and 55.1 are obvious. I can see where that might be a silverado frame, hence the wheels sticking out a bit up front. anyway, looks good and def a convo for sure. you got a sbc in it I'm assuming?

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

1948, sorry I didn't mean my truck wasn't a big deal. I just meant that all things that changed on the truck through the years (meaning yours) isn't a big deal. Even if the cab was changed, which it most likely was if its tagged as a 48'. Your 57' is dope too.

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

Thanks. It's an old military truck from Tulsa Air Force base so it's got a pretty cool story behind it. I have the hood and rear wheel wells, I need to atlest put it completly together for the time being.

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

I don't plan on going totally back original, but I do plan on going back with the same steel-blue type color and few other things. My dad has had this truck forever, no plan to get rid of it, but something else may just put it on the back burner.
