As I mentioned in a previous post, I attended the Hot Rods & Dogs car show on June 15, and as I also mentioned, it was very well attended, with a good variety of classic machines. For Truck Thursday, I’d like to share with you a few of my favorite rigs from the show, in no particular order. Check it out!
I think this is a 1953 Chevrolet 3100. Yes, that is a ’63 split window Stingray behind it (more on that later).
This 1956 3100 looks great with the fleetside bed out back.
This 1972 Chevrolet C10 is probably one of my favorite trucks, with its simple, clean design.
The 1973 Ford Econoline 100. We saw this van on the road earlier in the day, and wondered if we would see it at the show. I’m glad we got to look at it. I didn’t get a good picture of the interior, but it had shag carpet from floor to ceiling, with a little refrigerator behind the driver’s seat, and a very small black & white TV mounted to the ceiling. If the van is rockin’ . . .
I don’t know what year this is, exactly. Looks like a 1948 or 49 F-6 riding on an updated chassis. We all need more medium-duty trucks in our lives.
I’ll leave one more of these here for the bowtie boys.
That’s it for this Truck Thursday post. What do you think of these classics?
