    Default Bug out Vehicle

    OK, I have found my dream BOV. I've been looking for a while, and even though it's a little more than I was wanting to pay, but the work is done, so I think it will be OK. A 52 Chevy 3100 5 window. Has stock Thriftmaster straight six, one barrel Rochester carb, three on the tree, Not sure what tranny that is, generator, starter pedal.
    Once on safari in deepest darkest Afganistan we ran out of Gin, and were compelled to survive on food and water for several days.

    Nice score Chip! My grandpa had a 49 that I wish I had gotten from him when he upgraded to a 72 F100

    On many older vehicles you did not turn the key to start. Instead there was a starter button on the dash or on the floorboards.

    I learned to drive in a 55 3100, but I love the five window thing and split windshield.It's not cherry showroom quality, but in much better shape than I was willing to accept. I had found another but bed was shot, so thought about going flatbed. Seriously never heard of a starter pedal, dang I'm old. So yes or no, dimmer switch on floor?

    Yes, I've driven cars and trucks both with the dimmer on the floor. Never drove a three on the tree, I'm assuming there was a clutch......

    You hear the car companies are putting the high beam headlight switch back on the floor? Too many blondes getting their feet stuck in the steering wheel!
