the triple 5 Chevrolets (55-56-57) had the gas filler neck behind the left rear turnsignal/tail light

Does anyone remember what you had to do to open these? Just curious!

I don't recall ever seeing one with 8-hole wheels; 'F3' must mean 3/4-ton or something like that.


Olympus E-M1-3 and Oly PROs in 40-150/2.8 plus 2X plus FourThirds 12-60/2.8-4 SWD; Laowa 7.5/2 coming.. Gitzo GT-3533S Systematic tripod with leveler and Rogeti geared head. ... but now waiting for a new Canon R5 system.

How does the F rating equate to actual payload?
I'm ignorant.
F-1 ½ ton 4,700 lb (2,132 kg) Pickup truck
I'm trying to work out where the ½ ton fits into 4700lb.
Not trying to be smart, just revealing my ignorance :oops:

i believe the 4,700lb is the weight of the truck with fluids.

the 1/2 ton rating is the payload capability with occupants.

of course everyone at one time or another will put more than 1,000lbs of payload in the truck.

When I see stuff like this I always wonder how it got here. This is in a really remote area. What were they doing out here....and why?

Couple of more. I have to wonder if the well in the background was dug with this truck. The well is still operating.

Interesting.
You people seem to have oil wells like we once had water wells.
Are these things on private land and owned by the farmer, ranch owner?
Do they own the oil or only collect for government who pays pittance for the privelege?

Probably some damned fool out there taking pictures. Look around for a Brownie and a wrapper from a roll of 127 film. :lol:

Does anyone remember what you had to do to open these? Just curious!

Just search for "56 Chevy gas filler location" and you'll get a few videos in the results.

Thank you!!!!!!!!!

You are welcome, after looking at the pictures I was intrigued myself so had a search to find out.

Clever implementation by the design engineers.
