Started on this one today. Beam, trans and stealing gear removed. Body mounted to a dolly.
Opened up all the boxes. Looks like everythings here to put it back together.
First box I opened let me know whoever packed it was meticulous.
This box was amazing!!!
Need to get everything organized/stored in the morning then pull removables from the body.
We will build it if it comes.RustabusParticipantAugust 19, 2019 at 6:27 pmPost count: 1809

Hope it’s a full build!! Isn’t this the earliest earliest Single Cab known?!?!?!?!!?!?John JonesKeymasterAugust 20, 2019 at 7:58 amPost count: 6125
As far as I know… this is the oldest truck still around…. 😎 Thats about as cool as it gets right there!!! Possibly my only chance to body work some smooth gates!!!!! 😎
Were going to make sure shit fit’s right, gaps are as good as possible and repaint it and assemble it… With a later tranny and 1914 baby tractor motor.. this is going to be a shop truck for the Sailing Bridges garage… Cole said he plans to use it… Like we use our busses.. So.. Were going to shoot for correct, and respectful, but not over the top…. 😎 Which will be a tough line to draw with a barndoor…. 😎
This shouldn’t take too long…. 😎ryans65ParticipantAugust 20, 2019 at 9:55 amPost count: 94

Stored all the parts away this morning and handled a couple gap/fitment issues on the pass lower door and treasure chest door.
Also hung the engine lid and apron. Everything looks good
We will build it if it comes.ColeBModeratorAugust 20, 2019 at 5:59 pmPost count: 1432
Ohhhhh man! Gonna be sick!!!!
JJ. About the drain holes on the rockers and under the b pillar. Let me know if it doesn’t make sense and I can get clarification. From Mark:
”Drivers side, there is one pressed drain hole under the b-pillar….that’s it. Nothing else down the whole rocker.
Passenger side, pressed drain hole under the B-pillar, and three more down the rocker, but they stop short of the reserve hole.
Easy answer for John is , leave dimple drain under driver’s side b pillar- and remove everyone back from there”Pat KKeymasterAugust 20, 2019 at 6:02 pmPost count: 1216
All cleaned up and back in the dirty shop ready for love.
We will build it if it comes.Scott SainParticipantAugust 21, 2019 at 4:05 amPost count: 213

Ok… I understand.. It’s gonna happen maybe today…. 😎 any other little shits I need to focus on?? I’m gonna get those gates blasted in the next day or so too… Get them back on the truck, fit and body worked and primed… and then.. Shit.. Start slinging L31 like it’s water!!!!!!!! 😎 😎 😎
That old tilt.. is soooooo coooool!!! and soooooo worn out….. 😎 But cool as hell if thats a 1952 tilt!!!!ColeBModeratorAugust 21, 2019 at 1:07 pmPost count: 1432
That should be the OG one! Cool to at least have on the shelf.
I think thats it. I crawled around it last time I was there and I think that’s all👍🏼👍🏼 I’m excited to see this thing back from apart. It’s been a long time coming for this old thingColeBModeratorAugust 21, 2019 at 1:09 pmPost count: 1432markLParticipantAugust 21, 2019 at 8:03 pmPost count: 1
What’s the backstory on this one?
came out of Canada I believe. Peter Valentine had it first I think. Then Bob out in New York had it before we got it. I have some photos of it before it was stripped I’ll dig out.
The truck was dug out of hibernation in Canada in the early 90s by John Kellestine. Peter Valentin owned ab-51, ..dingus
