AD Chevy Trucks

Chevy trucks

Over 6,000 pictures
Brad Allen has an awesome collection of Chevrolet factory pictures that he has set up from film strips.

This one is on AD Chevy trucks (1947-1955).

  Welcome to our Virtual Garage for pre-1973 GM trucks -- If you're restoring, preserving or just driving an ole "Stovebolt," our "e-zine" has information we hope you'll find useful for living with your old truck -- from links to parts vendors (the best list of Stovebolt-related links on the 'Net!), a Gallery of old trucks to a virtual Swap Meet where you can find (or sell) those elusive parts to complete your restoration projects. We even have a discussion forum where you can ask questions, post ideas and even hang out with some old rusty Stovebolters!

We have a lot of things here but the best one is knowledge and we share it for free (no membership dues or pay-to-view).

So pull up a virtual running board, cop a squat and check the Gallery for lots of old truck stories. If you have some questions about the old GM truck project you are working on, try our FAQ, Tech Tips or jump right into The Forums, where the Stovebolt Brain Trust resides.

We've got everything in here from 1/2-tons to 3-tons, COE's, Panels and 'Burbs, Firetrucks, Tow trucks -- Lots of trucks in all shapes, sizes and stages of restoration and enjoyment.

Join us and make us stronger   Because none of us are as smart as all of us!
 KANSAS CITY -- Here we come! 10th Annual Stovebolt Re-union 

If you don't know these ruggedly handsome and charmingly beautiful faces ... it's not OUR fault. You should come on to Kansas City and meet some of the Brother and Sister Hood of the Bolt!

September 5, 6, and 7

We'll be gathering right smack in the middle of the USA with the Genuine Chevy and GMC Truck Club for three days! Check the Kansas City Reunion forum for details. You might be able to hitch on to a convoy of other Bolters coming from as far as Canada, Mexico and even Australia! We have plans for fun things to do. We'll have more clinics than last year, going each day. More details will be posted in the KC Reunion forum. So check in ... plan on coming. You don't have to bring a truck. There will be plenty of old Chevy and GMC trucks at the Midwest All Truck Nationals show for you to see! It's one incredible event!

Good Old Truck Resource  

New in the Gallery for August

It's been great to see the GM Heritage Center gathering more information on old trucks (and cars) and making it available FREE for us gearheads!

The latest is a A 49-page pdf file here for download of the first 100 years of GMC truck history, compiled by Donald E. Meyer.



Some events still going on as we wind down summer

Be sure to check the Event link, the Event forum, and the Side Lot to see where, when and how you can connect up with some of your fellow wrench-turners in other areas around the globe.
