For Sale: 1928 Chevrolet AA Capitol in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1928 Chevy Capital truck converted into a firetruck probably about 1928.It was built April 4 1928.It is stamped D 4 8 on the block.D is the 4th letter of the alphabet indicating the 4th month of the year in this case.It had set a very long time I am sure when I got it.It is supposed to be from Detroit,Michigan.I took everything off the truck except the bell and the brass fire extinguishers on the cab.I took the fenders,running boards and original floor off the truck.I spent countless hours last winter detailing the frame,fenders and running boards so I could paint every thing with por 15.I came up about a half pint short so there is about 1.5 hours left to get it completely done.It needs the roof recovered but the wooden bows are excellent.The cab wood was excellent. The original wooden steering wheel is perfect.The windshield glass is cracked and it needs 2 window crank handles.The window channel needs to be finished installing,I had the gas tank boiled out and sealed on the inside with a rust inhibitor.The starter and carburetor were rebuilt.Has new plugs,plug wires and coil. The battery is about a year old.I had the truck rewired with all new wiring.It has a new key ignition switch.Has new tail lights/backup lights.It needs a horn.The tires are in new condition and were put on before I got it.The wooden spokes are excellent.I put linseed oil on all the wood including the bows on the underside in the roof.This truck is one of a kind needing more tlc.I would never restore it but just keep it original.I would not paint it either.You will get many thumb ups just as it is.The bench seat is in very good condition.The truck comes with a manual that is worth its wait in gold.THIS TRUCK HAS NO TITLE.I can tell you whom to call in Tennessee to get a title.I got a title for my 34 Ford truck thru him and it was a smooth process. This truck needs more tlc,tinkering and fine tuning but the very hard work has been done.I will cover the roof with plastic before it leaves here.
