I know some of you have other old cars and trucks as I do . Is there any place I can get info on complete instructions on building a 29 Chevy truck ? I have a chance to purchase one that is rust free with all new wood in cab, drive train is 95% done, engine and tranny rebuilt, tires good . New bed with wood installed , new radiator . All parts to finish except hoses and belts. Box after box of extra parts. All sheet metal is in primer . All glass , seats are done. Cab and bed are bolted on frame. The cab metal needs the nails finished and top material . A lot of little weather strips and seals that need installed . I don't know what it's worth now and finished? Any info would be great.
Thanks

Amazon has one shop manual left for about $20 including shipping. There is a wealth of information on line. Google 1929 chevrolet truck manual.

Dallas, I've bought/sold/restored a lot of cars/trucks in my time, mostly Fords in the 20's-30's. Always made money, it was a large and profitable market. Then I bought out a estate which included a Chev 26' 1 ton and Chev 27' tudor sedan, they were in excellent original condition. It took like forever before I got my money out of them (broke even), NEVER AGAIN !!!

Dallas, Try contacting the Vintage Chevrolet Club online, they cover all years of stock Chevrolets. For old Chevy parts try, The Filling Station, in Lebanon Or. The 1929 Chevy was the first year of the 194 CID 6 cy engine. As with all old cars & trucks it is hard to say what it is worth but the VCC should be able to give you some contacts in your area.

Thanks guys
I had a 27 Chevy roadster in early 90's . Difficult to find info about parts. That was before I even had a computer. Finding someone with knowledge about them was even harder. I wondered if the interweb changed that. The guy wants 2K.

Dallas, It sounds like for 2K you couldn't go wrong if all of the work you mentioned has already been done. Just my thoughts on the subject. Harv.

Harv
I know I could make a little money if I just bought it , bolted it together and sold it running . It is to nice to 1/2 way it. Knowledge is needed to do it right and that I don't have. I will be bolting some really nice wood wheels on my T this weekend that I got from a nice guy out west !!!

Dallas, The price of 2K doesn't sound bad if it has a good title. Is it a pickup or a ton truck? A pickup would be easier to sell. As a resale truck, unless you can do your own final paint work you would probably come out better $$ wise just getting it running. The 1929 Chevy, even a very high grade restoration is not a highly sought out or high dollar vehicle. If you get more than 5K-6K more $$ in it, getting back to zero could be hard, unless you want to keep it for a while.
