Hi Justin, you have a beautiful truck; my son & i are working on a '50 model 3100 & are looking at the TCI rear parabolic leaf spring setup. How does it ride & handle, does it have body roll when cornering?

Thanks

I have the TCI leaf kit in my 1950 3100. I am not on the road yet so I can't comment on the ride but I can tell you it installs really easy and is nice quality.

Love those long bed Chevys. Way more options available than a shortbed. No offense short bed lovers. Just my preference. Beautiful (unrestored) truck!!

Re: How about some pics of 47-59

After 5 months I finally got all of the bugs work out. Never realized all the things that can happens when building something from the ground up. Lol But, I'm finally enjoying driving my 54 Chevy Truck. No matter where I go, people stare and give me the thumps up, I think that has to be the most gratifying felling besides people coming up at the gas station and taking pictures of it and asking questions about the truck. Also I finished the inside so here's a few pictures inside and out.

Thanks fellas for the kind words. These projects can sometimes take on a life of their own. Got all the bed wood strips tightened down today so the backend is complete.
