Post WWII, all Automobile manufacturers were in a little bit of a
scramble to come up with the next "Big" thing as just after the War
ended, everyone was just using the same designs before they were
forced to shut down and build military vehicles. So, now these
designs were over ten years old and people wanted something new.
For GM and trucks that were still deemed commercial and farm use
vehicles it was the "Advance-Design which was their light and
medium truck series that would be produced from 1947-1955. Now, for
me and I feel like most collectors the 5-window design in the 3100
model is definitely the nicest looking as well as offers a lot more
visibility when driving. I also feel like these are the rarer
models. This particular truck has spent its life in the Upper
Peninsula of Michigan and for sure was a farm truck for the first
part of its life. This truck did just receive a frame off
restoration after spending over thirty years in storage. The seller
states that most of the metal is original with the exception of
running boards and some of the bed. This beautiful piece probably
goes down the road better now than when it was new. The 216 fires
right up and purrs instantly. There is no smoke or leaks, all
gauges and lights work as well. Radial tires have been fitted for a
much nicer ride over the bias-ply that would have come on it when
new. All new windows except one corner glass, window and door
seals. The radio is said to work but no sound would come out so no
speaker was re-added. This is a very nice clean already restored
truck so nothing needs to be done.
