Heyward Byers 1942 Chevy 1/2 Ton

Heyward Byers 1942 1/2 Ton Pickup

I was inspired to restore my 1942 Chevy by a grocery store chain in SC. They drove their old truck to the different stores in the grocery chain allowing there customers to see it. There has been a lot of physical and mental work involved with the restoration but it has been a fun project and was worth every headache. Just to have people come up and want to take pictures makes my day. Thanks Chevs Of The 40's for all the help you gave me over the years on this 1942 Chev Truck.  I am now 71 years old and finished with it. Like Heyward's Truck? Leave A Comment!

    Nice truck Heyward, have fun now that your “done”, are we ever? I have a ’47 Chevy Aerosedan custom, that is never done.

    Great looking truck Heyward!!!! I m working on my own 41 and am in the process of choosing colors. I was going to try to stay with the original blue with Black fenders and running boards. I really like the blue you have used on your truck. Would you be willing to share the paint code? ?
