1955 2nd Series Chevy Truck Returns Home

Finally, after approximately 9 years of living in mom's garage, my '55 chevy truck was returned home to me. I drove the truck as my first auto in high school and through college. On a trip home, however, I let it over heat and the engine seized.
Now that I have a job and some (a little) money to spend, I am ready to tackle the truck again, from the frame up. My wife and I moved our current vehicles out into the lonely driveway to make room for me to work in the garage. I was excited to get started - this all happened in August of 05.

Welcome to the site TaskForce55. Checked out your journal - you are starting with a nice truck! A suggestion - remove the front clip before pulling and replacing that engine and tranny. You will save a lot of time in the future. Good luck with the remainder of the build.
