The first major redesign for Chevrolet Pickups after WWII was the
"Advance Design" series introduced in 1947. They remained in
production through 1955 and were marketed as larger, stronger, and
sleeker than previous designs. During their run the 5 window
version was released for extra safety to eliminate blind spots and
today that simple feature has become the more rare and desirable
option. These might have started life as work trucks but in current
times have become a go to for many collectors. This very nice 1952
3100 1/2 ton has gone through a frame off restoration turning into
a very cool restomod pickup you can hop in and drive anywhere. The
all steel rust free body is in excellent condition and painted in
Hugger Orange. It is fitted with all new chrome bumpers, a new
grill and new Black running boards. It has its original cowl vent
behind the hood which is still operational. The glass is in good
condition throughout including the 2 piece front windshield. The
wood beds on these old trucks are always eye catching and this one
is all redone with dark wood panels with stainless steel trim. The
truck rides on nice 15 inch 5 bolt Black wheels with Chevrolet
center caps and trim rings. The tires are in good shape and are BF
Under the hood the truck is clean with a painted to match firewall.
It is now powered by a very reliable 350 V8 that has been fully
rebuilt. It has a new Edelbrock intake, Carter 4 barrel carburetor,
Accel distributor, all new wiring, chrome Edelbrock air cleaner,
and chrome valve covers. It has a great sound delivered through the
stainless steel dual exhaust system. Paired with the motor is a
smooth shifting Turbo 350 Automatic and a 10 bolt rear end.
Underneath the floors and frame are all solid. It has been upgraded
with a new bolt in front cross member, new Monroe shocks, new
Mustang II front suspension, new Rack & Pinion steering, new master
cylinder, new front disc brakes, new e-brake and all new brake
lines. The truck has a huge list of new components and upgrades
turning it into a very reliable driver. Not all of these old
classics are both great drivers and good show cars but this thing
checks both of those boxes.
The interior features its stock bench seat with new Gray/Black
cloth upholstery. It has its original steel dash which was
repainted to match and wears its original chrome trim. It also has
its original radio system and stock gauges. A second gauge pod was
added under the dash for Temp, Amp, and Oil gauges and it has an
aftermarket tachometer mounted to the center of the dash. In front
of the driver sits a new Ididit tilt column painted in Black and
topped off with a new Grant steering wheel. The carpeting is all in
good condition and to the floor is mounted a Lokar shifter. The
wipers, heater and everything on this truck work properly.
Looking over this 5 Window you can tell a ton of effort went into
the build and only quality parts were use throughout. It performs
well on the road so when you hop behind the wheel you can be
confident in the drive ahead.
With all the work that has been done to it this truck is a steal
for only $28,750.00!
