1939 Chevrolet Pickup

Here are some photos of my 1939 Chevrolet ½ ton pickup. My wife, Victoria, has named it my all steel pickup “Baby Boy” as she has previously named our 1939 Chevrolet Coupe project car “Baby Girl”. Victoria frequently drives our pickup to local cars shows. Baby Boy was born in New York State to a private collector, and my wife and I adopted him in the fall of 2017. After purchasing the little orange pickup we had it shipped to it’s new home here in Mossyrock, Washington.

The pickup sits on a 1989 Chevrolet S10 pickup frame with a Camaro 305 SB, 200 R4 trans and Throttle Body Injection (TBI). The Chassis & suspension are completely restored to like new. It was originally built in 2004 by two old time hot rodders, who had a shop in New York. The truck drive’s, handles and runs great. Creature comforts include: PS, PB, front disc brakes, 3” single exhaust & cross over giving this boy some real rumble. Victoria loves him and is enjoying learning to drive him correctly.

Our other classic car is a 1939 Chevrolet Coupe, my wife named “Baby Girl” it too is all steel, and has been an ongoing project for the last two years. She’s a full-frame-off Resto-Mod. A freshly rebuilt 5.3L GM LS engine with a 4l60E transmission, firebird rear axle, 4-wheel disc brakes, coil over shocks, 4-link rear suspension, Mustang II front suspension, and a many other extra goodies will help power the Coupe down the road. When completed, her body will include 1946 Chevy truck headlights and a few other body modifications.
