1936 Chevrolet 1/2 Ton Pickup
This 1936 Chevrolet pickup proves that good taste never goes out of fashion. Restored to include V8 power, an updated suspension, an A/C interior, and the right amount of flair, this is the pickup that will turn heads. Vintage pickups are all about getting in touch with the satisfaction of a hard day's work. But when it has been hot rodded like this Chevy, it's all about the hard work that went into making it a great looking custom. The total package strikes the right mix of vintage appearance and new style. And it's perfectly seen where the all steel body of the tall, upright cab meets the amazing shine of the paint. They took their time applying the Candy Apple Red and plenty of clearcoat, so you really get to see the sunlight highlight the creases in the sheetmetal and the gentle fender curves. And it wouldn't be a true custom without some brightwork. The tall waterfall grille, headlight surrounds, door handles, and bumpers all have a mirror-like shine. But the details you'll really enjoy are likely the classic pieces like the glossy oak in the truck bed and the classic style cream wheels (they mask the more aggressive tread of the tires.) Inside you see more modern upgrades that still leave room for classic flair. The seats are a great example. These modern buckets look terrific in tan leather, and with less than 4,600 miles on the whole build, there's barely a crease in them. Plus, they leave room for a vintage tweed that looks great and feels comfortable. This same leather and tweed is continued on the custom door panels, around the cab, and on the headliner for a full uniform feeling. Plus, with the exterior red returning on the dash, this really has a very thoughtful total presentation. We love how they left the crank in the dash to tilt the front windshield and remind you how they got their breezes back in '36. But now this modern street machine keeps you cool with modern R134a air conditioning. There's even an AM/FM/CD stereo that's nicely hidden so that you can get modern tunes in this vintage ride. But as you slip behind the wood and chrome steering wheel, grab the Lokar shifter, and gaze over the full VDO gauge package, you instantly know there has been some nice upgrades in the engine bay, too. While the butterfly hood will draw plenty of attention, there's also plenty to show off underneath it. The 400 cubic-inch small block V8 looks tidy and has plenty of shine from the polished air topper, valve covers, alternator, compressor, and much more. But more than just looking good, this large small block has the added power of an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Holley performance intake, and the throaty rhythm of the dual exhaust fed by shorty headers. But don't just listen to the pipes; look at their full journey in the undercarriage photos. There you'll see how thorough the build is because even the frame shines from Candy Apple Red. Plus, you'll also spot an upgraded independent front end with tubular arms and adjustable coilovers. Add in great anytime features such as the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, which all makes this a great looking pickup that's easy to drive anywhere. You looked through all the photos. You've seen how tidy this truck is, even in the undercarriage. It's a truly interesting and nicely restored Chevy pickup that will get people talking because of its high quality and gorgeous execution.
