The V8 Speed & Resto Shop had the privlege of restoring this very special 1951 Chevrolet pickup truck, which belonged to the customer’s Grandfather.    The truck arrived at the V8 Speed & Resto Shop on multiple trailers with major amounts of rust and damage, having been a working farm truck for decades.    Our team performed a complete restoration on the truck, including rust repair, bodywork, paint work, a V8 engine conversion, and restoration of the dump-truck bed and mechanism originally installed by the customer’s Grandfather.    Once completed, the family drove the truck from their grandparent’s farm in Northwest Illinois to Liberty Lake, Washington, and were kind enough to share photos of their journey along the way.  Fortunately, they made the trip without any issues, and had a great time along the way.  Follow along on a great American Road Trip in a special family heirloom truck!
