Hello from JT’s Hot Rod Garage

     Here at JT’s Hot Rod Garage we specialize in hot rods, customs, trucks, and anything from good old American iron. My current project is a 1955 1st series 1/2 ton Chevrolet pick-up. It is in very good shape and almost all stock. I did a complete brake job on it, including all new everything. New king pins were installed along with a new drag link, front motor mount, new gages, generator belt, and a complete tune-up. I have designed and constructed a new wooden bed that is unlike any other. This is a prototype for 1947 thru 1955 1st series Chevrolet/GMC pickups. This unique bed follows the curves of the fat fenders. I can make one for just about any fat fendered pickup.
