216CI INLINE 6, REMOVABLE TEXACO DOOR DECALS, FIRST YEAR PRODUCTION AFTER WWII
At first we won't even mention the historical significance of this 1946 Chevrolet 3100 truck. Instead we'll give you a moment to look at the quality workmanship before we talk about this Chevy's cool story you'll love to share.
This is the pickup truck that got American moving again after WWII. It looked a lot like the pre-war Chevys, but this DP-series was part of the first full post-war production year. Chevy would change the style again '47, so these are an interesting single-year designation. The blue paint is quite a nice application with enough gloss to really help emphasize the flowing-fender style of this pickup. It also has some great features like the real wood truck bed and removable Texaco decals. And this one just seems to take its role as an American hero quite seriously. After all, the blue paint, red pinstripe, and whitewall tires makes the total package feel quite patriotic. But it's not a true classic American without plenty of brightwork. From the bumpers, to the extra tall grille, to the Chevrolet wheel covers, it all has a great mirror-like shine.
The interior is still working-class all the way, but that's all part of the vintage truck appeal. The tan interior with tan bench seat brightens the atmosphere. A rubber floor mat and other easy-to-clean materials make maintenance a snap. The factory heater was a nice luxury to warm you on your way home from the job decades ago, and now it's just a nice original piece to show off to your friends. And the three-spoke steering wheel has that great vintage feeling that instantly connects you to generations of hard workers that came before you. All of this highlights a truck that's still ready, willing, and able to go to work tomorrow.
This one carries a nice 216 cubic-inch inline-six runs smooth, so it's ready and willing to report for duty today. As expected, this kind of classic engine also has the fantastic old truck exhaust note that chugs along like a freight train. For that added touch of period-correct fun, the motor is mated to a smooth shifting, three-speed column shift manual transmission. It's the kind of old-school driving experience that can make every day feel like a Sunday.
This 1946 Chevrolet 3100 is a great classic pickup that can be driven to work or shows with plenty of pride. Someone gets to tell its story, and so you might want to hurry if it's going to be you. Call today!!!
