1950 Chevrolet Model 3100 - Stock 1/2 ton 5 Window Pickup
Some would argue that the 1950 was the BEST year for the Chevrolet Advance Design Series 3100. Changes made since 1947 to improve the vehicle settled in 1950 with a 5 window truck with maximum visibility, chrome, and venting before chrome and other parts were stripped off going into 1952.
This 1950 Chevrolet Model 3100 1/2 ton 5 Window Pickup has been fully restored in the late 1980’s (pictures available) and only has 2300+ miles since completion. In 2018, this truck was further restored by Nostalgia Garage to repaint all needed areas (fenders, bed strips, and running boards) and to ensure correct operation of all mechanicals (including carburetor, starter, brakes, and transmission). This added restoration confirmed the all steel quality of the body. This truck rides and drives wonderfully, has been garaged and is running weekly and in parades and shows. It is now time to let the next owner enjoy it!
This truck is as close to stock as you will find, including:
6 cyl, 216 CI with 3 speed manual transmission
6-volt negative ground electrical system
Standard Harvester green color
Upgraded chrome grill
Upgraded white wall tires
The only changes are dual exhaust, electronic ignition, improved headliner and lap belts (tucked behind seat for photos).
VIN is 2HP-JXXXXX signifying the 1950 3100 produced in Tarrytown in October.
This truck is ready to drive, show, and enjoy today! It’s the best one available on the market reserved for the one who seeks the best money can buy!

The Porsche 911 Targa with its integral roll bar was as much a product of necessity as creativity. Safety advocates in the 1960s were targeting convertibles as inherently dangerous at the same time that Porsche was planning to produce its new 911 with a drop top. The imaginative solution was… viola!… a built-in roll bar […]
