For Sale: 1950 Chevrolet Pickup in Groveland, California

Vehicle Description

Price slashed to $29,900.This uber popular Chevrolet 3600 3/4-ton truck series was produced from 1947 through 1955. This particular truck was built at the Oakland, California plant; it has a vastly superior mid-'60s full-pressure lubrication 235-cid six cylinder engine. The original 216-cid inline 6 was weak due to babbit bearings and splash lubrication. Our local seller's father bought this truck in Antioch, CA from a close friend and original owner in 1966. In 1974 a rebuilt mid-'60s 235 engine was installed, giving the truck a 25% horsepower boost and 15% torque higher torque. In 2019 the entire body and interior were totally taken apart and restored at a cost of over $20,000; only the chassis was not restored as there is only minor surface rust there. Other than one cracked taillight lens and a few dents on the running boards the truck is virtually flawless.In 1925, Ford was the first of the Big Three to enter the pickup market, but it was Chevrolet that stood tall as Detroit's top truck-seller by the time of World War II. Chevy resumed civilian truck production in August 1945, and really got back to business in May 1947 with its new Advance Design pickups. Wider, longer and lower than the prewar leftovers marketed in 1946, the Advance Design models looked thoroughly modern and featured an equally modern alligator hood hinged at the rear. There were few changes as the Advance Design trucks rolled into the 1950s, but Chevy continued to sell more trucks than all rivals even with Ford's new F-series models on the market after 1948. In 1954 a much improved 235-cid six-cylinder was installed and an optional automatic transmission was introduced. Advance Design production continued briefly into 1955.Due to the 1947-1955 Chevy pickup's popularity for both stock restorations and street rod conversions, frames and all sheet metal including the cabs are available as reproductions. This truck is entirely original metal.Hagerty Valuations (3100): #1 Concours $48,700, #2 Excellent $38,200, #3 Good $22,500. We offer this highly collectible classic at $31,900.
