We at MotoeXotica Classic Cars have had many classic trucks come through our showroom in the past year but few of them have been as beautiful and rarely seen as this one. We are particularly pleased to present this 1933 Chevrolet Master 1.5-Ton Stakebed Truck that has undergone a meticulous nut and bolt restoration. The hydraulic dump bed is also fully functional and really makes this truck a great piece to add to a collection!
This truck was in the same family since 1944, when the owners father-in-law bought it from a neighboring farmer who bought the truck new in Bolton Connecticut in April of 1933 for the price of $2,400, in 1991 the truck was brought to Arizona and went through a full nut and bolt restoration which was documented with photos and included with the sale. Under the hood is a 206 CID inline six-cylinder engine, bolted to a four-speed manual transmission with a 6.17 rear end. The truck has mechanical brakes and a power takeoff that operates a dump system. The father-in-law added the dump to make hauling and dumping fertilizer on his farm and it still functions today.
In fact, this truck's primary use was agrarian. He used it to haul fruits and vegetables to market and various supplies from the local nursery to his farm. Each year, at Halloween, the father-in-law loaded the truck with hay and took the neighborhood children on hayrides. In 1991, he decided to retire from farming and he asked the son-in-law if he wanted the truck.
The son-in-law agreed and had it shipped to Glendale, Arizona then started to disassemble the truck down to the frame. It took three years and the son-in-law finish the truck. Restoration included a complete disassembly of the vehicle. The sheet metal panel doors and the top were removed from the cab, exposing the wooden skeleton. He had all-new oak milled to the original specifications and made to replace the original framework. The drivetrain is original, except for a few seals and gaskets. The radiator core was replaced in 2016. All brake shoes were relined as well as the clutch disc and the pressure plate was rebuilt. All-new stainless steel rollers were machined for the dump mechanism. The gauges were sent out, tested, repaired and reinstalled. All of the cargo bed's wood was replaced with 2 X 6 oak slate while the bed stakes were redone in pine. A completely new wiring harness was installed, along with all-new tires and inner tubes from Coker Tire.
The interior was completely refinished as original, as was the vinyl top and all of the truck's glass panels were replaced. Documentation includes cold and warm starting instructions and original repair manual.
Competition to this Chevrolet in 1933 included Ford's Model BB pickup and Dodge's HC pickup.
This truck is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 89 miles since the gauges were tested and reset. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, exempt mileage Arizona title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
