Super rare super cool super desirable 1950 Chevy 3100 half ton pickup, it's a 99 % rot free truck having lived in a high altitude state its entire life.
Hot rod, lower it, your choice or simply leave it alone! It is 99% rot free, the only real rust is in the driver side floor pan as it meets the kick panel, it's only a small area so you could patch it or replace that side with a new replacement panel. Chassis is lovely and solid, just surface rust, cab corners all good too .No rust buckets here!!!!
In its original green paint with a patina people pay to recreate, never repainted
Half ton short bed
High altitude state truck hence great solid metal
Original and unmodified
Original 216 cubic inch straight six motor
3 speed "on the tree" manual column change transmission
Standard 6 volt electrics
All cab glass in good condition
Excellent un-butchered interior
This is a very straight truck and one of the best original unmolested example you will find!
IT IS INCREDIBLE HOW STRAIGHT THE PANELS ARE ON THIS TRUCK.
In 14 years of importing trucks this is the finest original example of a 3100 I have found . They really don't get any better than this.
Please be assured that all parts for these trucks are readily available both in the UK and in the US so keeping her on the road is easy and inexpensive.
The truck starts on the button , runs, drives and stops very well indeed.
New parts and work just completed-
New 6 volt Battery
New distributor cap, coil, spark plugs and HT leads.
New brake master cylinder, wheel cylinders and brake shoes.
New exhaust silencer.
New tyres just fitted, 4 quality radials .
New engine oil
New gearbox oil
New waterpump fitted
Radiator and cooling system flushed and refilled with coolant/antifreeze
The truck drives very well, doesn't over heat and drives as it should. The headlights and rear light work. All cab gauges are fully operative including fuel, volts and temp. The original vacuum wipers do not currently work.
In summary we have spent a lot of time and money getting this truck to the usable standard you see here so that you don't have to. It will however need going through to ensure it's 100% legal to drive on the road.
Of course the truck is exempt from MOT and road tax as registered "historic".
The truck is UK road registered with a V5 and number plates fitted.
This truck is 69 years old and will always require some "tinkering" and fettling throughout ownership.
I can also arrange delivery of this truck
Finally serious interested parties please call Pete on 07980921341, please no lowballers , tyre kickers, please be realistic with your expectations. This is still a 69 year old truck, as such it will drive like one and not like your 2013 BMW.
PLEASE ALSO NOTE- "I'LL GIVE YA 10 GRAND FOR IT MATE" AND SIMILAR MESSAGES WILL NOT PROVOKE A RESPONSE FULL STOP!
Sourcing , procuring and shipping these vehicles is a time consuming and expensive task. Everything has increased in price due to the pounds weakness since the brexit vote. The values of these vehicles are only going one way
PLEASE REMEMBER THEY ARE ONLY ORIGINAL ONCE!
I WILL NOT CONSIDER ANY OFFERS UNLESS YOU HAVE FIRST VIEWED THE TRUCK.
