Default 51 Chevy Restoration project

Been working on my dads '51 Chevy 3100 for the past 10 years, its a full frame off restoration, its not a performance minded build by any means but a true dedication to making this thing as close to factory spec as possible. there are only 2 remanufactured steel parts on the whole truck, the glass is new but other than that all the parts have been restored or are NOS parts. All the body work and paint was done in my dads basement, the beds gonna be goin on next week. enjoy the pics

yea, there was a little bit of surface rust on the frame but nothing rotted out, he also has a '50 3100 thats a farm truck from nebraska with about 70k on the odo, all original. this one has been the reference for the green one when we cant remember what went where lol
