Default 1929 1.5T Chevy Fire Truck project.
Re:: More old metal   

Well I finally got my hands on the inlaws fire truck. It was local to my hometown fire company, and my inlaw vol. at too. I have the original title in hand as well. It has been sitting in a guarry for several years now so it was dry. I had to go home doing the week and decided to bring it home with me this time. So I finally got all my cars/truck and project all in one place now.

It may not look pretty but it is a start for what we want out of it. This project it a very long project. I am in no hurry to get it done but I just wanted it home with me. Heres some pics.

Here is were it was parked.






The cowl


You can see the extra front fenders ontop the other ones.


Where it is stashed now.


What we are shooting for.

What isn't pictured is the suburban full of all the odd parts and pieces. We have a lot more stuff than what you see. The deal was it has to be a truck. In '29 it was the first for alot of the stuff that was on this truck. I would really love to keep the rims (or find better ones) but want these rims. We do have the rear fenders. The truck was an open cab so there is no cab at all. Just the cowl with a bench seat behind it. its going to take some time. My main goal was to get it home for now.

Nice starter piece... But my vote is for something a little more subtle than a bright red firetruck...

Oh. its not going to look anything like a fire truck. That is what it was, but not while we have it. I did try to track down the og firebed from it but no luck.

Just as a size comparesson look at the suburban and the fire truck together. Look how big the truck is. This thing is huge. Its no little truck. There is 8 or 10 leaf spring on the rear axle.

If you notice on the repop Hillbillies truck I posted the wheels are solid much like yours but the spokes are airbrushed on...

I wonder how an airstream trailer would look mounted to that frame

That gives me standing. My county(HARFORD) is nicknamed Hazzard county and everyone calls Cecil county "Ceciltucky". They even sell the shirts at WalMart LOL! Hell, the local Cecil county paper is called The Mullet by some people.

My aunt from Houston has been calling me American PICKER all week.?
