1948 Chevrolet Pickup
1948 Chevrolet Pickup
Picture yourself out in the middle of nowhere ripping down a 1 lane dirt road, kicking up dust and not a care in the world as you head to the opposite side of the ranch to go check on a fence. Big mountains in the background, and you are now de-stressing form the rigors of everyday farm and ranching life, so just give her more gas pedal, and roll on for the next 20 minutes.
For consignment a wonderfully aged like a fine wine 1948 Chevrolet Pickup that spent its life as a worker bee currently ready to be restored or keep the classic aged look which is so popular in today's classic world. Just a fab classic truck which right now are hot, and this one you still can touch so hurry on down to the Classic Auto Mall while she is still cookin'.
Aged green paint, patina and some rust are seen throughout. Steel is very nicely straight, and amazingly there are no real dents to speak of. Badging and chrome are pitted, but it is befitting to the work ethic this truck has. No trailer queen here folks, just pure unadulterated truck. The bed has splintered wood with surface rusted metal dividers, and a spare snow tire. There is some rot through on the drivers and passengers' sides near the cab for the bed, and the rear gate has a hole in it. Some invasive rust is showing beginnings of winning on the lower fenders, and steel wheels are solidly rusted but have shiny Chevrolet badged moon caps in their centers. The rear bumper has gone missing, and lighting is still attached to the tail of the truck.
All original right out of 1948 with tan metal, 2 simple round gauges and a central horizontal ribbed grille in rusted chrome. A well-worn steering wheel is fronting this dash, and just in front of this is a full bench seat with a newer plastic covering. The floors are metal and show some areas of repair and leftover surface rusting. Headliner is slightly saggy and is a hard material which has seen some water damage.
A pop of the big hood, and we see an aged 216 inline 6-cylinder engine topped by a 1-barrel carburetor and a 4-speed manual transmission on back. Plenty of surface rusting going on under this hood, and due to circumstances beyond our control, we were unable to attempt to start this truck (No Keys!)
Plenty of heavy surface rust seen throughout. Body hangers and frame are still sound and leaf spring suspension all around are noted. Drum brakes are on all 4 corners, and it appears a newer fuel tank has been installed.
An aged example of a hard worker, and a long life lived on a farm as a useful part of the entire operation. Now nicely patina'd, with no modifications to speak of, just the original truck. She will need some TLC but in the end whichever state it is left in, it will be a classic one could use for a great advertisement for a business that will definitely show off as having a hard work ethic.
