Recent Frame-Off Restoration
This beautiful, classic Chevrolet truck went through a complete painstaking 15 year frame-off restoration using original, OEM and NOS parts. No expense was spared with a total restoration cost of well over $100,000. This truck has been driven only 1,300 miles since the restoration was completed three years ago.
This 1947 Chevy 3800 Stake Bed One Ton Truck is a 2nd Series mid year model. During the restoration, a 1953 cab was used in place of the original cab because the newer cab is similar in size and style except that it came with vent windows. All of the wood for the bed and stakes were meticulously redone.
This truck is equipped as follows-
- rebuilt "straight 6" 261 engine
- 4 speed manual transmission with a 411 rear end
- dual rear wheels/tires
- upgraded to power brakes
- vent windows
- NOS Chevy heater
- NOS Chevy radio
- 12 volt conversion
- custom fuel tank
- 4 locking under bed/side storage boxes
- 1 locking under bed/rear storage box
- dual exterior mirrors
- complete front/rear lights with turn signals
- dual windshield wipers
- seat belts
A restoration photo book plus many restoration receipts will be included with the truck.
The paint, body, chrome, wood, rubber, glass, stainless steel, electric, interior and tires are all in excellent restored condition plus the truck runs and drives great. This truck is currently registered in California with the pictured 1947 Commercial Truck plates that go with the truck to the new owner. All pictures were just taken for this listing.
This Stake Bed Truck is the best of the best and will top off any truck collection or make the perfect show piece for a business...
