Nice truck, my parents bought one new for their flower shop. I didn't know these trucks didn't have tail lights.

Nice truck. And yes, they only had the one brake light on the left rear door from the factory.

I'd like to keep in contact with you regarding your panel truck. I am rebuilding a 1954 Chevy 3800 (I believe it is a 3805 to be exact). Would you mind providing suggestions on some of the more difficult aspects of the rebuild process? I will provide more detail as I get further into the project. I would appreciate learning from your experience.
