1929 Chevrolet Pickup
In 1929, Chevrolet did what no automobile manufacturer had done before. With the release of the 1929 Chevy International Series AC Light Delivery truck, Chevrolet was the first to introduce an overhead valve six-cylinder engine. Advertised as “six for the price of four,” the 194-cubic inch OHV engine was a massive success. With 46 horsepower and around 125 lb.-ft. of torque, the overhead valve engine was nicknamed the “Stovebolt” six, due to the fact that the external slotted-head fasteners resembled the bolts found on woodstoves. It can also be referred to as the “Cast-Iron Wonder” because of its cast-iron pistons. So not only did the Stovebolt engine have the appearance of a woodstove, but it also represented the same quality of durability. In fact, with the Stovebolt six engine, Chevrolet was able to upgrade the one-ton model truck to a 1.5-ton model truck with a maximum gross vehicle weight rating of 7,000 pounds. The revolutionary Cast-Iron Wonder engine influenced future generations of Chevrolet engines.
When was the last time you saw a 1929 Chevrolet Tow truck? Probably never. Well better than seeing one is the opportunity to own one, and a really top-notch example at that. This truck has a nice but not over the top restoration. The 194ci 6-cylinder engine purr's like a kitten. It has a four-speed manual transmission, a Manley Wrecker boom (manufactured in York, Pennsylvania) and a BEEBE Bros maritime winch. This Tow truck also has a full array of tools and jumper battery. If you are a serious truck collector, then this is one you'll have to have.
