For Sale: 1946 Chevy 2-Ton Flatbed in Omena, Michigan

$7,600 (OBO)

Vehicle Description

1946 Chevy 2-Ton Flatbed Truck THE BAD It's a 70-year-old farm truck. It tops out at 40-45 mph with the existing gearing. It has a good amateur restoration, but NOT a professional restoration. It does not have the original engine or transmission. It takes a full minute to warm up the engine before you can drive it. Steering wheel has suicide knob attached. THE GOOD The truck looks great and gets great comments from everyone who sees it. The engine starts immediately, every time. The restoration did not screw up the truck for someone who wants to do a professional restoration. The engine is a 1980s Chevy straight six that works great. The transmission is a stick on the floor automatic with overdrive and works great. The cab, running boards, and fenders are all original metal, not fiberglass reproductions. The truck has the original "Super Duty Heater" that will heat a village in the winter. Tilt windshield works. Locking gas cap. Tires have tread. Spare tire included. Original stake-bed panels included. (Might have been a grain truck originally.) Great new instrument panel. Updated brakes work very well. Instruments work. Steering wheel has suicide knob attached. Serial Number HAD 3664 I have a clear and unambiguous Michigan title in hand. Meaning that: 1) The title is in my name and possession, 2) There are no liens, and 3) The serial number on the title matches the number on the truck chassis. Odometer shows 1,168 since the restoration, but obviously, it has prior miles on it. Options: 1) Keep the truck as it is. It looks great and runs great. 2) Do a professional restoration. 3) Turn the truck into an oversize "Boss" 1-ton pickup. 4) Take the great cab off and put it on a modern Silverado AWD, and sell the running chassis. I have too many projects and can't do them all.
