This 1951 Chevrolet 3100 has been in our family since my dad bought it new in 1951 in Wooster, Ohio. It has a 216 cu. in. motor, four speed transmission, original radio, that still plays, the original bill of sale and spec. sheet. My girl friend and I started restoring it in 1992. It took 5 years and was done outside because we had no garage. The truck is completely stock, except for the paint and upholstery. Every part was ordered through Jim Carter Antique Truck Parts. The hardest parts to find were the 6.50-16 snow tires. The truck is a daily driver and is entered every year in ‘Hot August Nights’ .. We also put it in shows and parades. I wanted to thank Jim Carter Antique Truck Parts employees for their effort in getting us all the parts to complete this truck project. All the parts we ordered were just like original and we sent nothing back. Working with a company like Jim Carter’s made the project a lot more enjoyable;..
