Hello from JT’s Hot Rod Garage

Here at JT’s Hot Rod Garage we specialize in hot rods, customs, cars, 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. Here are the updated photos of my last version before the truck sold. I refined the bed somewhat and sprayed it with red primer over gray primer. I installed new big & little tires and wheels with caps and trim rings. I converted it to a 12 volt system with a chrome one wire alternator and a new 12 volt battery. I installed a new clutch disc, pressure plate, bearing, and a 5 speed transmission. Next was an HEI distributor that made a real difference in the 235. Inside I added bucket seats from a 2002 Chevrolet Cavalier with a three gauge cluster and a dash mounted tachometer. I recently installed new tinted glass and window channel for the new owner.
