Welcome to JOT mwood. Looks like you got a great project. What are your planes for it. Something nice about it just the way it is. Does it have a dump hoist?

No dump, used to be a fire truck then a farmer got it. I want to rebuild, keeping as much original as possible. Unfortunately the whole thing will need to be repainted. I am going to paint the wood box a deep army green, the grille and very front black fading to fire engine red on cab/ hood. I am going to spend some money on chroming bumper, mirrors, all the brackets on box. Mechanically i want to stay original.

A local guy has a 51 pick-up that his dad bought new (small local dealer) and used for service calls for his own fleet of trucks. At 16, the present owner was charged with making night calls all over Wisconsin and Illinois. Of course, there was much missed school involved, try that today.
One little piece of friendly advice. I've never seen a red to black fade work, I've tried it several times and I've never seen a successful one at a car show, one always ends up with a ugly grey-brown area in the middle of the fade.
Good luck with your project.

I also like the black fender red truck look. I got on eBay i have the original parts catalog, original sales catalog and owners manual will make for nice additions to the truck. Just found a fuel sending unit from km lifestyle manufacturing. if you know anyone looking. That is a cool story.

Wood, Welcome to JOT.. You have an excellent sized truck there to work with.. The black fenders with the rest of the cab red would look great.. Black spokes with red rims??
