I bought my 1938 Chevy truck at an estate sale in Lindsborg, Kansas on October 4,2002. Since that time I have performed a frame off restoration on the truck. The frame and body panels were all blasted to bare metal, and the repainted to their original colors. The metal interior panels including the dash were blast to bare metal and then repainted the original brown with wrinkle heat treat paint supplied by Jim Carter, to give the interior an original look. All the chrome including the grill was sent out to be plated. The master and wheel cylinders were sleeved and rebuild. The engine was is good condition, I got by with cleaning it and painting to original gray and replacing gaskets. Doing everything myself other than machining, plating and upholstery in my free time quickly turned into approximately two years. I still have to install my new kick panels to finish the interior. I have taken it to a couple of shows and get a lot of looks. Everyone asks about the interior, and I tell them it’s Jim Carter magic. Would I do it again? YOU BET!
