The purpose of this Blog

This blog is to detail my 43 years (1973 - 2016) with a 1928 Chevrolet tourer, affectionately called "The Red Chev".

The acquisition, restoration, improvements and my experiences over the years are covered in as much detail as I can remember.

Some of the later postings include car club outings and other vintage car items that I hope will be of interest to people.

If you have the time, scroll back to where it all began in 1973 and follow the journey so far.

Thanks for dropping by.

Regards Ray Dean

1931 Model A Ford Coupe, converted into a pick up?

Found this on Barn Finds

This is a coupe that was converted into a truck during the war. It was owned by Floyd Haislip in Wellsville Mo. It was bought by a collector in Wellsville,Mo in about 1957 and stored in his collection until 2002 then sold at the big auction. It has 1948 Ford spindles and hydro. brakes. Other wise it is original Model A. To get it on the road again the timing gear as replaced , the brakes completely rebuilt with new wheel cyl, master cyl. and linings. It runs and drives very well and starts right up every time. The front fenders have never been split or repaired. It even has the original engine dirt pans that have maybe never been taken off.
