  1. Now that my 1933 Chevrolet 1.5 ton dump truck tires issue might be behind me , it is time to consider what I should put on the sides of it that would be period for it. Gonna need something appropriate for the era and use of truck does anyone have a collection or website of door/box/tailgate logos from the early thirties? The photos I sent are from my Gr. Grandfather's 37 Dodge Bros. he trading in two Ford Model A pup's on it and it was used by the company into the 1970's ending up life as an Ice-fishing shack on Lake Winnebago considering those are 100 pound LP bottles, overload wasn't a question back then
  2. Those resto Gods they do work in mysterious ways,,, 4 NOS rims shined down upon me,,,,, should be enough now.....
  3. Thought the resto Gods smiled down on me as yesterday standing in a neighbor's cow yard, I noticed a trailer with 10 hole wheels. upon closed inspection I found out they would work into my rim guest. I inspect the locking rim area and they look nice. Oh,,,,, the Resto God is a trickster as upon taking the rims to the tire guy I find out that I must inspect the area where the rivets hold the inner piece of to the outside rim circle. My scrap buddy is happy though and I at least have 4 rims to put the truck on the ground. Hopefully...
  4. Was at a museum this weekend and noticed this 35 Chevy 1.5 ton truck with different style wheels front to rear. The tire size was the same so they must b e different manufacturers?
  5. I did not know that,,,, locking verses split rim, Also Budd verses stud piloted was new to me. Guess old dog new tricks is true, Which leads to other thoughts, Would locking rims from drier portions of the country ie Arizona or New Mexico be in better condition? What years did GM use the 5" locking rims
  6. I thought the split rims on my 33 Chevy 1.5 ton were in good shape so I bought the tires 6.00x20 Firestone tubes and flaps only to find 3 maybe 4 of the rims are no good What year GM trucks use the Budd type? stud piloted rims that will fit the 6.00x20 tube tire? See my ad in parts wanted
  7. add to your list tin knockers that know how to solder
  8. Over the years I've seen many local community pictures taken and made into post cards. Many have in the shot, a roadster sitting somewhere. I figure it's the photographer's car, bur it is always so far away to identify. Maybe someone could figure out what it is with this front shot The town is Fredonia Wisc. heading east

  10. looking this over I see I didn't show a pic of the Ford part number the part number is 48-18541-B one MIRROR and CLOCK
  11. Hello all, I got this rear view mirror/clock and it's box, instructions, and such at a rummage sale to sell online. Funny though, the more I futs around trying to put the mirror/clock into box, its doesn't seem to fit? Then I got to thinking maybe it's the wrong box for this mirror clock? Like sometime in the past someone replaced this mirror/clock with another one and thru the old one in the new ones box ? What you guys think?
  12. came across this nice photo of a high wheel truck dunno know what it is or were it is from not IHC I believe not enough spokes in wheels THANKS
  13. Bought this '33 Chevrolet 1.5 ton truck. It came with this front bumper mounted. It looks similar to the bumper my '30 Chev sedan had years ago but seem to be a heavier version. Along with the truck, came this unmounted bumper, which I was told it is for a '35 Chev.
  14. on the original Happy Coupe photo there is a radiator cap ornament of a chief's head looks after market though.
