216 INLINE 6, 3 SPEED MANUAL, ORIGINAL, CLEAN, SERVICE RECORDS AND DOCS!
This 1952 Chevrolet 3100 five window puckup is looking for a job. Willing to put in long hours and look good doing it, this workhorse can still be used as a truck. Capture the best of both worlds with a hobby vehicle that you can use as Chevrolet intended, and still drive it to the local cruise night where it'll draw a crowd.
OK, let's admit it, nearly anything looks good in burgundy paint, particularly vintage vehicles with lots of curves. The luscious metallic paint lets all those great '50s shapes stand out without making it look excessively modern. That desirable 5 window cab is topped with a restored spot light. With straight bodywork that's uncommon on old trucks, it gets a ton of attention on the street and a lot of folks fall in love at first sight. Today it's a great-looking example of a show-and-go pickup that's fully sorted and nicely turned out. Gaps are probably better than commercial vehicles of the period, and the blacked out grill adds a custom touch.
Inside it's still basic and simple, but carries enough details to give it a purposeful and upscale look. The bench seat wears black vinyl upholstery, pleated for a period look and added comfort. The original gauges remain in the dash giving a full view of the engine, while an aftermarket Autometer tachometer is the only obvious addition to this cab. This is also one of the rare vintage pickups that seem to have been equipped with a radio when it was new, and the vintage AM radio still resides in the center of the dash. Overall, everything appears clean and well maintained. With a column mounted shifter behind the 3-spoke steering wheel, you'll enjoy your time in this truck whenever you take it out.
Power comes from Chevy's 216 cubic inch inline six, also known as the Stove Bolt Six. It's smooth, reliable, rugged, and is finished with bright blue paint and a 1-barrel carburetor. It ticks over with an industrial grumble from the single exhaust, and moves down the road easily. The undercarriage remains stock and the simple ladder frame shows no signs of twisting or previous accidents. It's been professionally maintained and serviced for 16 years, so you can count on dependable hardware and components where it matters. There is even a stock of log books for each year dating back to 1998 documenting the mileage of this truck.
There is also a stack of manuals and Chevrolet marketing material included with this sale, as well as a host of replacement parts should you need them anytime soon. But the bottom line is this truck is already a turn-key package that is ready to please. Show it and drive it, this one is ready for duty. Call today!
