Description for Chevrolet Other Pickups 1950

Beautiful All Original 1950 Chevrolet Thriftmaster Advanced Design 3600 Pickup TruckUp for auction is an INCREDIBLE time capsule - an ALL ORIGINAL 1950 Chevy Advanced Design 3600 truck. Sure. these trucks aren't super rare. but it IS super rare to find one in this condition - original paint. original power plant. NO rust & is a DRIVER! I believe that this is an original 37. 00 mile truck & it runs like a top. The paint has beautiful original patina that only time could create; not the fake stuff! The truck came from Northern California. The cab is very very nice. the cab corners are perfect with no rust holes like these typically get. The doors shut effortlessly. When the previous owner of 15 years of the truck took apart the starter and generator to rebuild them to make sure they are good to go for another 50 years. the brushes and all of the internals looked new! So he didn't need to do anything because everything looks new. The early Advanced Design Chevy pickup trucks had one piece side windows and a cowl vent mounted on the side of the cowl by the driver side door. No other truck after 1950 have these unique features. The whole entire truck is very straight with just minor dings here and there from usage over the years. The fenders are all very very straight. The grille on the truck is one of the nicest grilles I have ever seen! Just take a look at the original two tone paint on the grille. The pickup also has its original chrome front and rear bumpers. Now when have you ever seen a truck with a regular rear bumper like this one? They always have some heavy duty towing bumper on the truck. I have to think that this truck was rarely used as an actual "truck". The bed and tail gate are straight and not all dented up like typical old trucks get. The windows of the truck are nice and all original. The wheels and hubcaps are original to the truck with new Firestone whitewall tires. However the tires were installed almost 10 years ago so the whitewalls are cracked but the tread is still like new. The spare tire that is mounted under the bed is in fact brand new and never ever used since new in 1950. The running boards have the original black paint on them. However. the original owner of the truck got a little too close to a tree with the passenger side running board and it did push it in a bit. there is no other damage as a result of this; it could be pounded out. The brakes were all gone through and they stop quickly with a strong and firm pedal. The truck on the side is very nice for being 65 years old. The seat cover was reupholstered to match perfectly with the original stock seat cover that was installed in the truck. The door panels and headliner are all original and have never been changed. Those are just cardboard. so that is also how you can tell that this is such a low mile. all original pickup. The floor mat is in great shape. the rubber is very soft and pliable. The dash is nice with the original radio delete plate intact. The gauges all work perfect. The speedometer needle has fallen off. which is very typical for these trucks. A replacement needle can be bought new on ebay. The steering wheel is nice and has some paint wear from being original. The door and window rubber and tracts were all redone to seal the cab tightly from the elements and to keep it sealed when driving down the road. The truck is still original 6v and all works perfectly. All of the eletrical works perfect on the truck. the horn. heater. defroster. turn signals. headlights. dome light and everything else. The truck still has all of its original cloth braided wiring that is in great shape! The heater warms the cab quickly on a cold morning. The original vacuum operated windshield wipers work perfectly. The engine is the original numbers matching 216ci straight 6 engine. How rare and cool is that to have the original engine in a truck. Just look at how nice that engine is! The valve cover still has the original Thriftmaster decal on the sides of it. The engine runs amazing! It holds a constant high oil pressure. It sounds like it's just purring away while at idle. It does leak a little bit of oil. The engine starts up quickly and easily. There are no issues with 6v here! Like I said before with the generator and starter. those were going to get rebuilt as just a precautionary maintenance but they looked new inside so that was not needed! The radiator was replaced with a NORS that is identical to the original one. It was replaced also around 10 years ago but it has some chips in the paint that makes it look original. The thermostat was changed to a 180 degree one. This truck absolutely never gets hot and overheats even in the dead of summer. The truck has a four speed transmission with a granny first gear. The truck shifts through all the gears perfectly and with ease. The clutch feels perfect and does not slip or have any issues. The carb and intake are all original and work perfectly. The original choke and throttle pull are still working perfect. This is such a spectacular truck! You just never ever see them this original and this clean! The chrome bumpers are patinad but look good for a truck this old. The paint is worn through to the metal on the hood and rear fenders. The truck just has a ton of character and that is what makes it so special. It is such a wonderful driver. Anybody can own a restored truck. but what is special about that? Why not own an all original pickup that shows nice character. And last but not least - yes. these old school bed rails are easily removable. I think they are cool but the next owner may want to throw them away. Now for the fun stuff:NO TRADES. I would consider ending auction early for the right price. so if this interests you. please make me an offer. Please don't ask me what my "lowest price is" or "what's your bottom dollar?" Just make me an offer (above starting price) if you want me to end it early! Foolish questions / messages will be ignored. The truck is for sale locally and internationally. and I reserve the right to remove from Ebay should the truck be sold. ALL shipping arrangements must be made by buyer.
