Default Young guy and old truck

Hello all, this forums looks kinda dead.
I just picked up 46 what i believe to be a 2 ton truck. from what i know the truck was in service till the only a few years ago at a lime corey as a fuel tanker. Now this truck is 61 years old and i'm only 23. I've only owned it for a couple of weeks and already love everything about it. Looking around on the net, it is hard to find parts and info on the larger trucks( 1 1/2 and 2 ton)
Anybody know of some good links for the heavy-duties. Thank in advance.

Tim

Tim,

I have been searching all over the place and cannot find any decent parts suppliers catering to the deuce and deuce-and-a-half crowd. That doesn't mean they're not out there, just not an easy find!

Hopefully someone out there will know of a company that can help. In the mean time, try contacting American Classic Truck Parts or LMC and see if they can offer any insight.

In the mean time, like I always advocate, get with your local classic truck or car clubs and see if anyone there has any contacts that might help you out.

Mac

Default information

Welcome to the site wigs, love the truck, looked at the pic. You may find a great connection for parts and history here, www.aths.org, this is the Antique Truck Historical Society. They are headquartered here in Kansas City, MO but have members and chapters nationwide. Most of the trucks in this group are big, old work horses, that are refurbished and awesome to look at. Good luck finding what you need.
