1953 Chevy Pickup

Ferndale-53-Chevy

An enthusiastic car fan drags his grandfather’s old work truck from his uncles farm in very poor condition, with the intention of restoring it to it’s former state, prior to it’s neglect. Nothing unusual about that, we’ve certainly heard similar stories before, but you don’t usually hear about a job like this being undertaken by someone whose previous automotive experience is limited to changing spark plugs on a Taurus. To my delight (and surprise), the restoration was taken on with vigor, and piece by piece the truck was brought back to life, completing what many other family members said they were going to do, but never did. Right here is the essence of this game we know and love so much, just a guy restoring a car and learning things along the way, doing as much as he can on his own, bringing back a piece of history.

    It’s a nice job, but I prefer the original look, love my ratty cars and 50′s pick-ups look sick.

    Very nicely done. I think the truck looks good ratty but looks even better after restoration! It’s such a good feeling when you stand back and see what you have achieved and the skills you pick up along the way.
