800 Derita Road, Ste. A
This 1952 Chevrolet 3100 pickup has all the right looks for a cool vintage truck. The Advanced Design style has matured into old-school tough Americana attitude, and oh yes, this one has the ultra-desirable five-window style. Now you have to decide, will it be the coolest workhorse cruiser around or a candidate for a V8 upgrade in the hot vintage truck market? With this exceptional condition and affordable price, anything is possible.
This Chevy provides a real lesson in honesty. Over the years, plenty of classic trucks have been filled with more features than the factory ever intended. Instead, this one has just gone through good maintenance and era-correct refreshes as it passes into its seventh decade. The body is nice and straight, and the wood in the truck bed has been replaced to erase decades of any tough loads. There's even paint on the lumber, so you can still use this for handy tasks. The windows are clear and clean, including the optional rear quarter glass that makes this the desirable five-window pickup. The dark green is the result of at least one modern respray. It's a timeless color now featuring a deeper shine that looks nice when you take it out on a sunny weekend. Plus, there are hints of well-earned distinction with the correct-style vintage wheel covers and the tall five-slat grille finished in a distinguished black and white. It's the kind of appearance that comes with real credibility. You could even buy this pickup today and put your company's name on the side. It will instantly make your business look like it has decades of sturdy history, even if you just opened your door yesterday.
The interior is still working-class all the way, and that's all part of the vintage truck appeal. The gray looks utilitarian and tough, and you can see that there have been investments in period-correct details, like knobs, handles, and glovebox door. Even the gauge package looks newer. You have the standard-style bench seat that now features seatbelts. The big three-spoke steering wheel and airy cab make this feel like a time machine back to when the heater was a true luxury on your way home from a day out in the fields.
Under the hood this truck continues its theme of honest showmanship. Chevrolet's Blue Flame six looks terrific with the long blue block and silver head cover radiating from within the dark engine bay. This is a 235 cubic-inch motor that was a later edition, but it's a true 1950s block in the correct displacement. The consignor has even done a good refreshing it within the last few years, including a recent tune-up. That means this is the kind of classic tough truck engine that has some serious workman torque, and it's as smooth as a sewing machine. It has a fantastic old exhaust note that chugs along like a freight train. For that added touch of period-correct fun, the motor is mated to a three-speed column shift manual transmission.
Complete with build receipts, five-window Chevys are always in-demand. So one that has this much classic distinction is truly a hot deal. Call now!
