1949 Chevrolet Other Pickups 3600
This has been an Arizona truck for most of its life. Although it was bought new in Nebraska as a farm truck, ts last two owners (including me) were Arizona residents. I’ve owned it for over 20 years. Anyway, he bottom line is that it doesn’t have any rust. This is an all stock deluxe cab (5 window) ¾ ton (3600) truck. It has the 216 cu. in. straight six and the granny gear 4-speed transmission. It has 17”, lug 3-piece split rim wheels (optional on the ¾ ton back then). These wheels are nice to have, ecause the 7.50 x 17 tires are about 34” tall, hich allows you to drive at highway speeds (I never went over 65 M.P.H.) even with its steep rear gear (4.57).I just put 5 brand new tires on it.This truck has the rare “real truck visor” with the square sides. I’ve done some things to help its drivability: I sent the engine off for conversion from splash oiling (which sucks) to full pressure oiling. I had the starter and generator re-wrapped for higher output. The first mod allows the engine much better life on the street, nd the second solves hot start issues (as it still has its original 6 volt system). The bed and side rails (a Bruce Horkey ash wood kit with polished stainless strips and hardware) are newly refurbished. Paint is old, ut still buffs out pretty well, s you can see. This has never had a full restoration. Starts, uns and drives great though. Location is 50 miles from Tucson, f you or a representative can get here to inspect / drive it… Includes shop manual and factory assembly manual.
