If you’ve been looking for a nice post-war pickup that you don’t have to be afraid to drive, this one might be perfect for you. This 1946 Chevrolet was restored before the current owner purchased it, so it’s a little hard to tell how old the restoration is. The current owner has done quite a bit of work to the drive train and this truck is ready for some cruising. It can be found here on eBay with an asking price of $34,600. Currently located in Okatie, South Carolina, the truck has been in that area for quite a while and was kept at a mountain vacation farm and driven infrequently. Take a look at this nice old truck and let us know your thoughts.
The interior looks comfortable enough. The bench seat is in good shape and the rest of it looks tidy. I’m guessing the gauges were restored or replaced when the restoration was done. You can also see the air conditioning unit below the dash, which makes a great addition to these old trucks! The one-piece windshield is a great modification too.
The seller has quite a bit of information in the ad regarding the drive train and various changes that have been made over the years. The current power plant is a “Blue Flame” straight-six that is mated to a Muncie 4-speed transmission with Hurst linkage. The ad states that it looks like it is from 1952 or ’54. The truck also features a cross-over pipe and dual exhaust and probably sounds great.
With the restoration being older, there are some dings and scratches on the truck. However, from 20 or 30 feet, this truck is a winner. There would be no shame in cruising and showing this truck. You could also do another restoration on it and take it to the next level. What would you do?
