Chevrolet pickups had entered the "modern era" starting with the
1937 model year. For this model year, all new sheet metal was
introduced and the gaps in payload capacities were closed with the
addition of both �-ton and 1-ton models. Styling was very
attractive and borrowed heavily from the passenger car line.
For consignment, borrowing heavily from the passenger cars of 1937
with their tall grille and undulating fenders. This example has
been fully restored in 2013 and is retaining its beauty from that
restoration. A 3-owner truck since new, and now a beautiful
interior to go with the car like exterior.
Starting with that wonderful tall grille upfront that is in a
widening V shape with vertical ribs the radiator surround comes to
a widows peak on the hood then runs to the middle of the cowled
hood. A single headlight hangs off of either side and is framed in
front with a polished chromed bezel. A simple curved shiny bumper
is below, and this protects those wonderful centerfold curved front
fenders. All steel for this truck, with no rust, just deep blue
paint. For this year gone is the wood framing of the cab and it is
now all pressed steel all rounded over and very nice. A thin band
of trim encircles the cab just below the door handle line. All
steel for the bed sides which are rolled over at the top edges. The
fenders frame blackwall tires which wrap blue steel wheels with a
dog dish Chevy badged moon cap, and a thin trim ring at the edge.
Running boards help entry to the cab and all is rust free on these.
The bed is lined with like new lacquered yellow pine and blue metal
strips are holding this bed to the frame. On back a Chevrolet
badged steel gate and just below another single curved shiny
bumper. All straight with well minded gaps for this exterior.
Tan colored door panels lead the way to the interior where a full
coffee covered vinyl bench stretches across to the other door.
Rubber lines the floors, and above a texture tan sprayed dash us
now in and it houses what appear to be the original gauges. A few
additional knobs and pulls and no radio for this dash which is
fronted by the original steering wheel. Below the passenger glove
box is a heater box for just a bit of extra comfort in their
otherwise utilitarian interior. Above a fiberboard brown headliner
is installed and all other vertical panels are painted with the
texture spray of the dash.
Popping the cowled hood we see a 216.5ci inline 6-cylinder engine.
This is topped with a 1-barrel carburetor and has a 4-speed manual
transmission on back with a 4.11 final drive. Like new electrical
wiring is seen throughout and the engine has also been fully
Keep it simple is also the theme for the framing which is painted
black and shows no rust. The underside of the wood bed is also
looking good with no weathering or rotting. Leaf spring suspension
is on all 4 corners, and drum braking is on as well. A single clean
exhaust runs the length for a rear exit.
For this year a more car-like ride was fashioned for the design to
sit on, and this truck did nicely on the test track. Smooth
acceleration and the classic whine of the 30's cars tend to have
was present as I went through the gears. Solid braking from the
drums, and all functions were in working order.
A full restoration from 2013 has left this beauty, well, beautiful!
Harkening back to an era where design was important to lure the
customers in, let's just say I'm hooked!
