COLLECTOR-OWNED DELIVERY, NICE RESTO, 350 V8, AUTO, PWR FRNT DISC & STEER, A/C!
Take a good, long look at this 1952 Chevrolet panel delivery truck. Seriously, look closely and you'll see that with the amount of work that went into this build, not to mention the extensive parts list, that the asking price is a genuine bargain. To duplicate this car-provided you can even find another one-expect to spend three times that much money. Or you can just buy this one today and start having a blast the moment you get it home.
It's too bad delivery trucks don't look this good today, because they'd make SUVs obsolete overnight. The 1952 Chevy still had that classic rounded look from the late '40s and even dressed in high-profile Porsche Guards Red it looks nostalgic. Workmanship is exceptional throughout and I have to imagine they started with a really straight truck to begin with, because getting a black vehicle this straight takes cubic dollars. They let the original shape speak for itself, and didn't waste time with graphics or stripes, and it really works well. It's got a few signs of use and age, but to be honest, nobody will care because this one has that old car look that seems to attract admirers everywhere it goes. The bumpers, grille, and other details were refinished, and all the stainless was professionally buffed and reinstalled, so it really glitters against the black paint. It wasn't shaved or modified, so all the little details are there, from the hood ornament to the stainless wheel shields on the rear fenders. From the back, the only parts that tell you this isn't a stocker are the two exhaust tips peeking out from under the chrome bumper.
This truck's commercial days are long gone as evidenced by the two-tone gray interior with a nicely finished front bench and beautifully sculpted side panels in the cargo bay. That's the original dash, which has been painted to match the interior, and it still houses the original gauges that have been reworked to monitor the small block V8 up front. The steering wheel is pure race car cool and it's been seamlessly attached to a modern column, including the shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. There's also a neatly integrated Pioneer CD player with speakers throughout the interior and the A/C controls now live in the center of the dash. Every single surface inside this truck was hand-made, including the door panels, carpets, headliner, and the rear area which uses a diamond plate floor that both looks good and remains tough enough to use as intended. Look around and you can imagine how much it cost to make it look this good, more proof that this truck is grossly underpriced.
They didn't phone it in with the powerplant, which is a 350 cubic inch V8 with an extensive list of parts and modifications that would make it the right engine for a high-performance Camaro. Up top there's an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor and matching aluminum intake manifold, and there's a mild cam inside that sounds pretty darned good. Artfully crafted with finned valve covers, Chevy Orange paint, and a few chrome pieces, it's low-maintenance and looks great at the local shows. Upgrades like power steering and brakes are very welcome and the dual exhaust system has a nice burble that's not too aggressive. Flashy Rally wheels give it the right look and wear 235/75/15 Michelin radials.
Nicely built, eminently practical, and always handsome, this panel delivery will be welcome anywhere, but you may enjoy driving it so much that you never want to park it. Call now!
