Corona Project!

Well, one thing I have learned from this pandemic is bad s**t can happen quickly! This truck has been in the family for 40 years and in my care ( or lack there of) for 20 years. Life kept getting in the way and two major house remodels came first. Well no more excuses and collecting parts so I cleared a hole in the garage and pushed her in. I have watched with interest how so many talented people have created great projects on this site so hopefully some of it sank in. Anyway, I know you like pictures so here are some of where I am starting from with my 47.1 GMC.

Re: Corona Project!

That's a great truck to start with. Nice to see a '47 1st design. Years ago, I thought all '47s were this style and '48 was the first year Advance Design.

Re: Corona Project!

So I found a surprise when I removed the Heater/Defrost unit. Were heaters optional on this truck? Anyway, I was surprised to find a Ford heater and there did not seem to be a surplus of holes in the firewall to indicate there had been a different heater installed. So far I have not found too many Warts for the age of the truck. I did give up on trying to unbolt the small fasteners with Phillips heads, even with lots of WD40 they were not coming apart. Luckily most broke with a little more tightening. Removing the rivets has been a little more fun!
