1951 Chevrolet 3600 3/4 Ton Stepside Pickup Truck
Garage Kept Motors is pleased to offer this beautifully restored 1951 Chevrolet Pickup for consideration. Our client is the third owner of this vehicle and acquired it from South Dakota in 1992. It is a Western truck with zero rust and has been preserved with care over the past 25 years.
When the truck arrived in Michigan, it was all original with faded Forest Green paint (see photo). 15 years ago, our client restored the truck to the condition seen today, repainting it Red. He also added new custom seats, refinished the bed wood, added the side wood panels, new wheels and tires, and refinished all the chrome. Mechanically, he had the original and temperamental 216 engine removed, and replaced it with a 1955 261 Inline 6-Cylinder. The engine bay looks the same, but the motor was rebuilt and bored .10 over. The original transmission was replaced with a T5 S10 gearbox, yet still has the original floor shifter for changing gears. A new driveshaft was professionally installed too with a 4:11 rear end, and with all these upgrades, the truck can travel highway speeds (70 mph) smooth without over revving the powerplant. It is a turn-key classic truck that starts on command, runs and shifts smooth, and is ready for a new garage to call home.
As the market continues to trend for classic trucks, we believe this is a fine example offered at a very realistic price. Being from out West, you won't find any rust and you'll get a nostalgic ownership experience. The perfect parade truck, cruising to the local drive in, or a trip up north to the lake. The truck also comes with a copy of the original South Dakota title and has less than 3,700 miles since finished. A proud truck with a great stance and guaranteed thumbs up wherever driven.
