Classic Car Overview

Site does not allow certain details to be entered easily . . 1951 Chevy 6100 2-ton truck , , VIN 5 UV E 2124

May-Belle is a 1951 Chevrolet 6100 2-ton with a hydraulic bed lift. She was a Nebraska farm truck in which I found receipts for corn and beans from a local elevator!! She runs well, no smoke and a very strong clutch. I can drive her anytime, anywhere - except this year she is not licensed. Only about 60 miles on the tires, 19.2 miles showing on the new odometer (today, Sept. 4). Original (stuck) odometer showed about 54,500 miles - actual mileage unknown. I cut the bed down to 10’-6” so the truck is only about as long as my Ford F-150 daily driver, fits well in the driveway. Her 70 year old patina is maintained by application of a mixture of boiled linseed oil and mineral spirits and rain really makes her shine!  I have spent 4 years, a few hundred hours and many thousands on this wonderful project and now it’s time for her to be re-homed. I have spreadsheets of all parts purchased, dates, from whom and prices paid. Many parts catalogs, Chevy service and '48 - '53 Truck Shop manuals, ‘51 Chevy published materials, parts (new and original) and extras available to come with her.

Highlights of new parts used on the project . . . . .
. Side roll up glass and fuzzies on both doors
. Headliner, seat rebuild & upholstery, door panels & trim, rubber floor mat.
. Noico 80 mil sound deadening mat on all non-exposed interior surfaces, fuel tank and inside the doors
