1955 Chevrolet 3200 Half-ton PickupSecond Series 1955 Chevrolet First year for new body style Transport Blue exterior Dark blue interior 265 CID V-8 engine with Edelbrock air cleaner and dual exhausts Retrofitted with a modern five-speed manual transmission Wraparound windshield - a truck industry first Only year for seven-foot cargo bed
At MotoeXotica Classic Cars, we are proud to present this 1955 Chevrolet 3200 Half-ton Pickup, a great example of the modern transformations happened to pickups in the wake of similar updates to passenger cars. This particular example was made at GM's former assembly plant here in St. Louis, Missouri and it is part of the second series for 1955.
Finished in Transport Blue, the truck's paint and trim are in overall excellent order, with just a few scattered blemishes visible at close range. The truck's windows are in very good condition, as are its lights. The glass and lights are clear and crack-free. Overall, the truck's bodywork is straight and solid, the truck's bumpers fit tightly to the body and are in better-than-average shape. The seven-foot cargo bed has a wooden floor and is ready to haul stuff or just be appreciated.
Rolling on Coker Classic wide whitewall tires, P235/75R15 at all four corners, this truck has steel wheels topped with full moons and beauty rings. The tires are in satisfactory order while the wheel covers look great.
Under the hood is Chevy's breakthrough 265 CID V-8 engine which invigorated many of the brand's nameplates in 1955. It has an Edelbrock air cleaner and breathes through dual exhausts. Backing up this motor is an interesting surprise - a modern five-speed manual transmission. Combined with the engine's decent amount of torque, the transmission's extra cogs should make acceleration easier and more frugal on the highway since there was no overdrive fifth gear available in 1955.
Inside, the truck's dark blue vinyl bench seat is a handsome contrast to the exterior color and is in excellent condition. The black floor mats are in great order, the headliner is in similar condition and the three-spoke steering wheel is in excellent order. The instrument panel has an aftermarket temperature gauge underneath and is in fine order, as are the inner door panels. Rounding out the interior is a JVC AM/FM stereo with cassette deck.
Nineteen fifty-five marked the first year for the truck's new body style. A new "wrap-around" windshield—a truck industry first— came standard and optional wrap-around rear window on Deluxe cabs. Power steering and power brakes became available for the first time on GM trucks. The electrical system was upgraded to 12 volts. Only year for seven-foot bed length. Fenders have single headlights and one-piece emblem is mounted below horizontal line on fender.
Classic truck fans should come by MotoExotica Classic Cars to check this second series beauty out. This engine and transmission combo is sure to put a smile on your face and surprise other drivers who think an "old" truck is slow to move away from a traffic light or a stop sign.
This truck is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 33,657 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
