My name is Raymond Pederson and I am a retired university professor. My home is Vancouver BC, Canada. I have always loved fifties vintage trucks since growing up on a farm in rural Saskatchewan in the fifties. I have owned several and their major drawback is they are not suited to modern driving conditions. Let's face it, they were farm trucks! My goal for this build (1950 Chevrolet 5 window pickup) was to retain the iconic outward appearance of the 47-53 GM truck while having modern suspension, brakes, drive train and interior cab comfort. I searched for 5 years before finding a 1950 corner window Chevrolet pickup that was unmolested with minimal rust, finally locating one in rural Alberta. My restoration project took me 8 years and involved removing every nut and bolt. Every part of the truck was media blasted and the frame and all non painted surfaces powder coated. I installed Heidts Superide front suspension with power disc brakes and steering with 4 link suspension in the rear. The power train is a GM 350 crate motor, 700R4 automatic transmission and Chevelle differential. The truck was sent for final painting to Jaspers, Langley BC. After reassembling the painted vehicle, I refitted the box floor with ¾ " oak strips with chrome bed strips, installed the

There is a long list of reasons why the brakes will lock. We will attempt to cover the common problems. Probably the most common reason is moisture on the brake shoes or rust on the drums. When our antique cars are not driven for long periods, moisture can build up in the brake linings or rust will form on the drum surfaces. This can cause the brake shoes to grab or stick momentarily. The easiest solution to this problem is to "ride" the brake pedal while driving, until the shoes have warmed up, eliminating the moisture. If moisture or rust was the problem, the sticking should go away as soon as the shoes are warm. NOTE: If you are planning to store the vehicle for a long period, it is NOT advisable to set the parking brake. Moisture and rust can cause the brake lining to seize to the brake drum and cause a huge problem to get them to release.
