For Sale: 1950 Chevrolet 3800 in Concord, North Carolina


Vehicle Description

This is one for the haulers, attention getters, and anyone who loves unique vintage trucks. After all, how often do you ever see a 1950 Chevrolet 3800 Stake Bed Dually? But with the iconic design and all that lumber, this truck has been nicely presented to bring nostalgia to the commercial-grade field.

Do you have a business to promote or just want to make a splash at car shows? Imagine parking this vintage stake truck at your front door and/or taking up two spaces at an enthusiast event. People will marvel at this truck's well-done total presentation. After all, it has nicely fitting body panels and deep green paint with its perfect mix of high gloss and a hint of real truck use. And you'll love the details, like the roof lights on the cab and how the pinstriping around the cab coordinates with the white behind the grille bars. The tires are new on the industrial-grade 8-lug red wheels (six in total, because this is a hard-working dually.) And of course, there's the bed. The removable stake sides make a complete pen, and as you peek inside, you'll see even more nicely treated real wood. So no matter if you want to put your company's logo on the side, or just want a showpiece to bring your other toys, this is your best way to grab some attention.

Inside is pure vintage truck simplicity. It has a nice uniform look with the bronze paint, a recovered bench seat, and door panels done to match. There are the classic gauges and the large steering wheel is well-worn from the previous caretakers, and so you get that unbeatable the old-school pickup vibe. There are updated turn signals to keep this practical, added seatbelts, and the heater will even keep you comfy on their early morning runs to the feed store (or really more likely the car show.) Overall, the whole package has a solid usefulness that never betrays that nostalgic feel.

The 235 cubic-inch motor is the larger of the two available for Chevy trucks in 1950, and it was standard for the 3800-series. So in a vehicle that's all about vintage industrial honesty, it's great to see the correct-style engine under the hood. The blue block looks appropriate in the engine bay. But if you look closely, you'll also spot worthwhile upgrades, like the 12-volt system and alternator. So you have the inline-six that helped earn GM its reputation for industrial power, and it still reliably fires up today like it was going to the job site. Another key to the truck's usefulness is the four-speed manual transmission. The "granny" low first great means utilizing plenty of torque from the start, so this stake bed truck can get going even when under a load.

This Chevy is a great classic truck that can be driven to work or shows with plenty of pride. So if you're ready for industrial-sized cool, call today!
