I am Udi Cain, a war veteran from Israel. I love the USA and feel that Israel and USA are like one.

I was born in 1949 and loved drawing cars since age almost zero.

I bought a 1949 Ford F1, renewed it and drove it daily until the head of the Tel Aviv museum bagged me to donate it to the “Post Museum” in Tel Aviv museum, as it was used as the first post car in Israel. http://www.eretzmuseum.org.il/main/site/index.php3?page=24

After giving the vehicle to the museum I searched for another nice car to use daily.

I found the 1949 Chevy Panel that someone in the past had opened windows in it to make it function like a suburban and it was red which I didn’t like.

It took few months to renew it, and I’ve ordered many parts from the US through eBay; until I bought few parts from Jim, and here I am.

1949 Chevrolet Thrift Master Panel Delivery

The attached photos are of my 1949 Chevrolet Thrift Master Panel Delivery Truck. It was restored/ modified about twelve years ago but still looks pretty darn good thanks to the quality parts that Jim Carter supplies. This truck sits on a Chevelle front clip and differential. The engine is a Chevrolet crate 350 with 330hp and the trany is a TH350. She rides on 15″ steel police style chrome wheels. The interior has comfy gray tweed to match the Chrysler dove gray exterior paint. Within the interior there are classic “bow ties” to honor the Chevrolet heritage.

1952 Chevrolet

Owner: Dirk Van Den Bergh Belgium

1952 chevrolet truck

These are two Chevrolets panel trucks that we use for the club meetings of our Belgian club “Forties and Fifties American Cars Enthusiasts”. Both are manufactured in Antwerp at the General Motors Continental plant and have 6 in line engines and speedometers in kilometers. The green one is equipped with for loudspeakers and the flags of Belgium, the city of Antwerp, the European Community and of course the Stars and Stripes of America! We use it to open our meetings and U.S.-car parades. The parking lights and the turn signal lights on the green one are not correct and has to be removed one day and replaced with the originals. At the side of this panel truck, my 1954 Chevrolet Highway Patrol car.

The dark red panel truck is also mine but I use it for our club meetings as the last car to close the car parade. He will need some more parts of Jim Carter classic truck parts!

Best regards,

1953 Chevrolet Panel Truck

Owner: Jack Minton – Bizmarck, ND

1953 chevrolet panel truck

This panel was purchased by me about three years ago in Calgary, Alberta. It was a Police Paddy Wagon there in its previous life. I’ve added a Mustang II IFS, a Crate Ram Jet 350, 700R4 Transmission and a four bar coil over rear suspension with a 9″ Ford (Auburn Posi – 3:50) rear end. I also have a Lokar shifter and parking brake, an Ididit Steering column and Dakota Digital Guages. The seats came from a 1998 Blazer. I’m looking forward to installing my most recent purchase from Jim Carter, the headliner and arm rests, along with the rest of the upholstery, which I will fabricate.
