1946 Chevy Truck (Gulf Theme): It's hard to believe that 70 years have past and you can still own a Chevy truck that looks as good as it did in 1946 but runs down the highway like its 2016 "grandchild." That is exactly what the previous owner of this beauty set out to do when he built this classic truck. The 100% steel body is highly original and finished in the very desirable Hugger Orange paint. The interior was re-done in a blue cloth and the bed was carpeted to match to complete the "Gulf" theme of the truck. Under the hood is a completely rebuilt 350ci V8 from a '71 Olds that is paired to a '71 Pontiac 400 Automatic transmission (3:43). The engine is nicely dressed with Edelbrock upgrades, chrome alternator, and steel-braided hoses. Additional features include; AM/FM/Cassette Radio, Tilt Steering Column, Dynamat Interior, Dual Exhaust with chrome tips, and a Briz front bumper. Total miles on this truck are under 10,000 since it was restored and it still looks extremely fresh inside and out. Current book values place this truck between $37-44k and it is not one you want to pass up for only $29,900!
