1951 Chevrolet 3600 description
This 1951 Chevrolet 3600 is a nicely restored pickup with all the right extras. Extra wood, extra-long bed, an extra gear, and extra charm come together to make a standout classic.
It's hard not to get drawn in by an interesting pickup like this one. Refinished in traditional deep India Red with added texture underneath the paint, this oldtimer looks highly authentic with an added dose of attitude. The Advance Design trucks are an enduring icon because they are the first new-style post-war pickups to hit the market. With car-like hood and fenders, they have an instant attraction that comes from spending real time in GM's legendary design studio. This one has a level of quality that tells you someone invested some time and money into erasing its decades as a workhorse. The panels align nicely, the glass is clear, and the doors shut with authority. And you can even spot some subtle upgrades like the clear halogen lights and custom rear roll pan. But the part we bet you love the most is the real wood. When this was restored, the running boards, side rails, and bed floor all received the same finish to the lumber, which really adds extra character to the truck. Plus, have you noticed this is a true workman's vehicle with the longer bed?
If you like the deep red and dark tan on the exterior, then you'll love the interior, too. The restoration did a great job of utilizing the exterior color for a glossy finish on the dash, and the new tan vinyl on the bench seat feels far more comfortable than anything out of the '50s. And the atmosphere is quite fresh, because everything from the steering column to the floor mat has been recently rebuilt/replaced. But all the investments are subtle upgrades, because a truck like this never wants to lose its old-school charm. In fact, from the moment you get behind the classic three-spoke steering wheel, it has the perfect amount of patina and worn-in grip that will instantly have you feel connected to the generations of people who relied on this Chevy for their daily work.
Under the hood is a 235 cubic-inch inline six. It's an upgrade in displacement over what was available in '51 without losing the iconic Stovebolt attitude. More importantly, there has been some serious investments under the hood, including, a rebuilt carburetor, reconditioned radiator, 12-volt system/alternator upgrade, and a ton more to make this a reliable friend today. In fact, there's less than 50 miles on it since the rebuild! And not only does the motor make this truck a great classic, but so does the four-speed manual transmission. It's a period-correct option for heavy duty pickups, and first gear is nice and low for plenty of immediate torque. And with the new brake cylinders and shoes combined with the period-correct Goodyear Workhorse tires, you get a truck that feels vintage and yet still ready to work.
The sale comes complete with a ton of build receipts and maintenance records. Look around, but you probably won't find many trucks with some many extra features as this one. And distinction is the cornerstone for both fun and value. Call today!!!
