Here are a few of the latest illustrations I’ve been tinkering with. How can we make a 1953/54 Chevy 3800 run with Chevy 4wd running gear, a Cummins 6.7 liter turbo diesel, and a few other minor adjustments? Yes, I am just dreaming. But what I am intrigued with this truck is, the 3800 is actually a 3/4-1 ton truck and was less popular than the 3100 half-ton sister truck. It is a bit bigger, taller and longer. It is also MUCH cheaper and can be found all over for about $500. Significantly cheaper than the 3100. I miss my Ford Excursion so this would be a nice replacement of that, very unique and a fun center of attention if we ever did it. Regardless, adding something like this to the fleet would be a blast.
