Description for Chevrolet Other 1953

Fuzzy Dice AutosHas up for auction a classic bran find 1953 Chevrolet 3100 Pick Up truck!This vehicle came to us by someone who purchased it from a gentleman who had it stored in a barn for many years. The buyer then installed lots of new parts and a period correct straight six 235 ci motor. The motor came from a 1955 Chevrolet truck. Everything else is original to the vehicle. New brakes. new fuel line. newer tires. new clutch. and more. The "three on the tree" transmission shifts smoothly though all of the gears just as it did in 1953. The engine starts right up and runs smooth and quiet. Driving this vehicle was surprisingly enjoyable. She ran smooth. quick. straight. and stopped on a dime. The body is all steel with typical blemishes for a truck that hasn't been restored. It appears to have a very old re-paint that is certainly due for a new one. The most obvious defects are shown in the photographs. The wood plank truck bed is in great condition. The under carriage and floor pans are solid. The interior is acceptable but with minor expense could look much better. Only a seam tear on the bench seat. The speedometer works but the heater does not. These collector trucks are harder and harder to find. Especially the ones that haven't been resto or hot rods. Having nothing against them. but I'll take an original every time. So if you're in the market for a really neat and valuable collector truck that will only rise in value. then give this one considerable thought. Please don't hesitate to contact us if you require more information and/or photos. Thanks and best of luck bidding!
