Old Cars Reader Wheels: 1949 Chevy 3100 custom pickup

Once an abandoned farm truck is now a hot Chevy pickup with modern conveniences.

Debbie Janovsky’s ’49 Chevy 3100 is quite the looker. It is hard to believe this once was an abandoned farm truck. Debbie's hard work has really paid off.

Debbie added…

"This started out as an abandoned farm truck. It was completely disassembled and rebuilt with a 1992 chevy Caprice as donor car. The entire truck frame was boxed and fitted with an all Caprice drive train. The entire truck is 1992 caprice underneath utilizing the old truck frame. It has ps, ac, pb and 700r4 overdrive. I kept it all Chevrolet. The paint is even Corvette Millennium Yellow. 

All work was done at home in a 2-car garage Including the base coat/clear coat paint job."
