  1. I knew a bodyman that drove one of those trucks. Perfectly painted. Then one day, he crashed in a ditch. The fixed mounted steering column and the metal dash broke most of his ribs. There’s definitely nothing soft in the cab. He was an ahole and nobody felt sorry for him. They felt sorry for the truck, not him.

  2. I miss sealed beam headlights. Changing headlight lamps is such a PITA now. Shouldda put a dab of no-seize on the lamp holder oner ring screws.

    1. Got them on my ’46 pick-up, 12v. They are as bright and light the road equally as well as my new Colorado headlights. $17.99 each and change them in less then 5 minutes using a pocket knife. Ah the cost of progress and form over function.

  3. These videos are really cool! My grandfather is currently building a 51, and I send him these videos every time they come out, gives him some major help on how these trucks work

  4. Love watching this project. Not an expensive restoration or restomod like almost every TV show. Just good tips and content.

  5. I can’t wait for this truck to show up in my driveway when it is done. (You get it, you got it = good)

    Great job Davin

  6. These particular redline rebuilds on the 1950 Chevy truck have helped me no end in getting my 57 back on the road. Great tips and full of information.

  7. amazing in the 60’s and 70’s my bosses panel van wasn’t anything special. sad I dont have access to it today.

  8. I love seeing your restoration of this old Advance Design Chevy pickup. I miss having my old ’55 Series 1 but thankfully a buddy of mine bought it and did a full restoration on it. So I’m glad it went to a good home where it’s really appreciated and enjoyed.

  9. The old truck turn signals were red on the back because they usually mounted to the fenders, later the side of the cab (when cabs got wider), so they could be seen from the side/rear to let the car next to you that you were going to be moving over. They’re nostalgic.

  10. Great progress, though at the 0:54 mark there appeared to be a long rusted out gap on the left fender skirt big enough to toss your cat through. I don’t advocate cat tossing, but I do hope you will at least weld that up. As to your bumper mounted blinkers, my father had a set he put onto the head-ache rack of a 1953 Chevy COE 3-1/2 ton flat-bed hay truck. The original turn signal for it has the old manual cab mounted signal-arm that had a glass reflectors and a manual three position lever to operate it. we never took it off, it just looked so cool hanging there. >_<

  11. The music was a little too loud and “happy” in this one. Love the project but I had to pretty much watch this with the audio off.

  12. When I was a kid in the 70s, my mom drove a 53 Chevy similar to this one. Thing was a beast. Only 2 things I didn’t like was the vacuum wipers and the single port master cylinder. You blow a line, you are going for a ride

  13. I love what you are doing with this truck, but I do have to say I think the radiator should have been painted black. Kinda sticks out like a sore thumb.
