Vehicle Options on this 1953 Chevrolet C Series Truck
I bought this 1953 Chevy pick up truck some time ago from the original owner's family. The original owner was from Florida originally, relocated up to northern Minnesota and once he passed away, he left it to his kids who left it inside a garage from some time. I bought it from the grandson of the original owner and brought it home to my car lot teddy's auto sales in waukon iowa (look us up on the web) After some time I finally got to it and had my guys get it running and driving. I had the 235 6 cyl engine completely gone through recently including a new head gasket. We cleaned the carb and did a carb kit, did a tune up including plugs, wires, points, cap n rotor, coil, headlight bulbs, battery, frost plug etc. bypassed the original wire harness and made it a 12 volt . we put in a new water pump and aluminum Radiator. I had a new master cylinder put on as well as new line/ wheel cylinders in the rear. The 235 6 cyl engine runs really well and doesn't smoke knock or miss. It really is one of the better running and sounding engines I have had in this era truck.
I mostly drove the truck around my farm etc. It always fired right up. This truck drives and handles like a dream. Very easy ride. The speedometer works great. The amp and cooling gauge work great. The fuel gauge is in op as I am running the truck off a aux tank. The original tank is there but should be cleaned out or replaced before being used. The truck steers great and the four speed trans on the floor is a blast to drive. It shifts all gears like it should nice and smooth. The lights are working. The tires are serviceable but are older with some weather checking showing. They hold air fine but it could use new ones. I have had the truck up to 55 mph and it really cruises. You will be very happy with the drive!
Cosmetically the truck looks very nice. the silver paint ,while not a number one 40k restoration paint job, looks great in my opinion. I would call it a 5-10 footer. I really videoed it well so there are no misunderstandings on condition. It has a new wood kit and box rails. The underside looks good with only normal road wear. It has new exhaust. The truck comes with a vintage visor that really sets the truck off well. the interior looks very good and solid. the floors look great. The seat is original and supports well but should be reupholstered. there was a crack in the windshield and the vent windows have cracks. the driver door glass should be replaced, ( afforable and easily found LMC Truck or Jim Carter truck) The 5 window glass looks great. Like I said really study the video, it does a great job showing you what the truck is. I do not want to overcall it or undercall it. This is one very nice running and driving rare 5 window truck that you can use right away while you tinker it to a level you want.
As every one has their own opinion on what a classic 3600 truck should be, I encourage you come to inspect and check out the truck in my showroom or hire ebay to do a independant inspection for you (time to do all of this is before you bid, not after the auction ends) The plates and plate toppers, dash magnets, and air cooler in the window do not go with the truck as they are part of my dads personal collection. I require a 200 dollar non refundable deposit within 24 hours of auction end. If I do not see the deposit within the time frame, I will assume you are a dreamer or a scammer and not serious about buying it. I can recommend shippers I have used in the past who have been very reasonable. If you have any questions at all, please call me 563 568 1186 or 563 568 5111. Thanks!...More ...Less
