    First project to tackle

    Another difference between 54 and 55 is that the upper exposed door hinges on a 54 are hidden in 55. The 54 was the first year of the Functional Design era 1954-1956. 54 was the first year that a small V-8 241 could be found under the hood. As an option a recirculating cab heater was an extra $40 and a fresh air heater was $60.

    They are well marked and easy to install. Just not cheap.

    The windshield says it's really a 1954 model. Must have been sold new in '55. Your truck also appears to have the back corner windows that I'm pretty sure were discontinued for 1955.

    I've heard that a weak coil can cause that when it gets hot.

    Stromberg BXVD

    I was getting ready to sell a BVXD-3 on eBay but will offer it here first. $45.00. Throttle shaft is tight and that spring is present. PM me if interested for photos. I tried to add the photos here but am getting a notice that I "cannot exceed 3MB" ……. even though the 2 photos only total 1.5MB's combined.

    Unscrew that tube with the knurled end and you will find a piece of felt that should be soaked with oil periodically.

    New to me 1947 WD-21

    With that 134" wheel base I'd say that's a 1.5ton or more. Plug the vin number into this site and it'll tell you just what it is. http://www.t137.com/registry/help/decode.php
