We now have this truck running and driveable, a rebuilt carb has been put on and the engine sounds good. This pickup has been in the family since it was bought new in 1949. It's a 3/4 ton and everything is pretty much original, except the engine. The casting number on top of the engine block is 3836848, which puts it probably being a 1958 engine with a force fed oiling system. We do have the original tail gate and it's in great shape. Has a clean title. Here's a link to more pictures of the truck, including the tailgate.
