these are the complete and running trucks of the Black Fleet, the is the 46 chevy 3 ton water truck that I tow because there is no motor.

also the 38 maple leaf truck is a Canadian chevy which is really hard to figure out what they used for parts. it is a johnny cash I took it one piece at a time vehicle.

yes that is very true, I learned after my last DIEvorce and had a few ladys live with me only to take my white suburban and flat screen TV when they left. I have decided the rent plan is the best.

there might be. in 2012 when I started working on the 38 Maple leaf I gave up because nothing was falling in to place on ordering parts. the 38 GMC was to be the answer because it is the heavy truck of the chevy line up. I was wrong. the 38 GMC is the same as the 39 chevy for parts and size. the 38 Maple Leaf is bigger and more confusing but we are slowly getting it figured out.
