Recently arrived from the States, first time advertised. Super rare super cool super desirable 1955 Chevy 3100 1st series half ton pickup, it's a virtually rust free truck having lived in a high altitude state most of its life.
Hot rod, lower it, your choice or simply leave it alone! It is 99% rust free, there is a little rust in the outer cab corners and a little in the kick panels but that's about it. The chassis is rust free and perfect. No rust buckets here!!!!

This is a cool truck. It's an ex "Conoco" fuel company truck still in its original two tone paint, cream cab and green fenders and bed. The "Conoco" emblem can still be seen on both doors. Conoco was an oil company which closed down in the 80s but the petrol brand Conoco still exists today and is owned by Phillips 66.
Being a 55 it's the last of the 1st series fat fendered trucks and also benefits from having the open rear drive shaft rather than earlier enclosed torque tube. The 55 was the first year Chevy fitted open drive shafts.
Half ton short bed
High altitude truck hence great solid metal
100% original and unmodified
Original 235 cubic inch straight 6 cylinder motor with 3 speed manual column change transmission(3 on the tree)
Original hub caps
Original 6 volt electrics
Original side mount spare wheel carrier c/w spare wheel
Excellent un-butchered interior
She has a few dings and dents

Great example of an original old truck having benefited from a great deal of recent recommissioning.
The truck starts runs drives and stops very well. It has had the following work recently carried out-
New 6 volt battery
New headlight switch
New front light lenses
New fuel pump
New water pump
New re-cored radiator
New fuel sender unit
New wiper blades
New brakes all round including master cylinder, wheel cylinders and hoses
New door glass just fitted both sides
New tyres all round
Carburettor rebuild
Engine has also had recent head gasket
Rebuilt gearbox
The headlights and rear lights all work, as do the horn and wipers!
The truck arrived fitted with 50s Firestone "widowmaker" split wheel rims on the rear so in the name of safety we've fitted two new one piece rims, copies of the original style but a little wider.

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.

I am selling as a simple project , the truck has the original US Title and comes with the NOVA showing all duties paid. It is now registered here in the UK with a V5 and number plates fitted.
Of course the truck is exempt from MOT and is registered as an historic vehicle so tax free too.

I can also arrange delivery of this truck

Finally serious interested parties please call Pete, please no lowballers , tyre kickers, please be realistic with your expectations. This is still a 65 year old truck, as such it will drive like one and not like your 2013 BMW. You can secure the truck with a deposit.
This is an old vehicle and will always require a certain amount of "tinkering" to keep on the road.
You can either buy yourself an £8k scrapper recently dragged from out of a field or you can buy a genuine identity "proper" example of an historic vehicle that will only gain in value over the years! I only import genuine proper old trucks.

A similar truck , year and model sold here on Ebay 15th January for £18988, so this is not expensive!

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
