1955 Chevrolet Other PickupsThis is a 1955 1st Series 3100 Chevrolet 1/2 ton Deluxe 5 Window Cab pickup that was restored around 1980. According to the former owner the truck was restored about 1980 and for some unknown reason it required an inspection by theWashington State Department of Licensing.
Whenthe inspection was done and an assigned VehicleIdentificationnumber was issued along with a new VIN tag riveted on by the Washington State Patrol. It appears that they made an error on the paperwork and entered 1952 rather than 1955. We verified all of this with the Washington State Department of Motor Vehicles andtransferredthe registration and title into our name. We also purchased new license plates and tabs so that we could drive it. Depending on what state you live in, you could have it re-inspected, pointing out that the year is actually a 1954, it could be re-registered with the correct year showing on the title.
This is a very solid and straight truck right off the farm.From what we can tell it was originally green and white. It has a 235 6 Cylinder engine with a fullsynchro3 speed standard transmission. Starts instantly, and runs very strong and smooth. Compression is 140 psi even on all cylinders. Oil pressure at idle is 40 lbs. The clutch works great and no slippage. Transmission shifts easily. It has a 1960s "Hurst Mystery Shifter" on the floor. As you can see from the pictures there is little to no rust (cancer) and there is no plastic filler either. The bed sides are very straight as is the tailgate.
As with all 1955 3100 series it is a 12 volt system. It has been updated to a 12 alternator. The windshield wiper motor is a new with the intermittentfeature. Heater works great. Lights and turn signals work as they should too.Glass is excellent with the exception of the wind wings, which are easy to replace flat glass. We put in a new reproduction gas tank, tank filler and cap and new tank sending unit and all new fuel lines.
There is a box of small parts and a radio (have not tested the radio) included, as well as stock rear bumper brackets.The carburetor is rebuilt, new plugs and wires too. The engine runs sewing machinesmooth.This is a perfect Chevy truck to drive as is, restores, hot rod, or turn into a slammed Rat Rod.The engine casting numbers read 3836233. That means the engine was made between 1955-1957.International Buyers are welcome too.
