1931 Chevrolet Telephone Truck
Two-tone Green and black paint. Paint job is older and upon close inspection does show cracks and wear. No damage or rust found in body. Driver side window is cracked. All tires are good but some do have aging cracks. Headlights, brake light and horn all work and engine runs beautifully.
Reupholstered interior is in great shape with no damage found. Wood framing in doors is in very good condition with no signs of damage. Some gages on the instrument panel are not working but I do know they have worked in the past. Floor board is good but I do not have the mat to cover it.
Straight six engine starts easily and runs excellent. Has the updraft carburetor. Engine was rebuilt about 20 years ago and show no sign of leaks. The non-synchro assisted transmission shifts great and has the reverse level on the stick.. Mechanical brakes stop the car well.
This truck has been in the family since the 50's and has been used for parades and car shows. when it was purchased, my dad performed an off the frame total rebuild. In 1993 he performed a engine rebuild and gave it a new paint job. This truck is an uncommon model telephone truck due to the fact that Bell systems purchased and used mostly Ford trucks back in the day. It truly looks great and runs great and is ready for a weekend picnic or parade.
