Up for grabs is this 1946 Chevrolet 1/2 ton short box pickup truck. It has a clear Wyoming title in my name. It was sold new in Sheridan Wyoming. It has fantastic patina for a rat rod or hot rod truck to keep paint like mother nature prepared for you. It was originally dark green w/ black fenders. The 216 motor is frozen. The coil and air cleaner is missing (I will supply oil bath air filter if you want it). The radiator was out of the truck so I just hung it back in place. The lower drain petcock is missing so have no idea if radiator is good (I would assume it is bad). It had a spotlight in driver pillar so there is a hole to fill there. Other things missing are both seat springs and upper cab header panel and the vacuum wiper motors. Also the brake plug in the floor and the horn button are gone (all these parts are reproduced and easily purchased). The upper header had mice in it, so I took panel off and could not salvage it. The metal header is rusted in center and part of the lip is gone. This can easily be patched w/ a bent piece about 16" long w/ a 3/4" lip on it and welded in. The windshield hinges are not affected but have surface rust on them. The vacuum wiper motors were not saved due to rust on them but I would convert to electric wipers if you want them to actually work. The gas tank straps were too rusted to keep but tank looked clean inside shining light in there. I think it can be coated and saved. No rust thru on tank anywhere. Drain valve got tossed upon removal. I showed pics of trans and under gas tank before installing pan and tank back in truck. NO RUST under tank or on floor of cab or in cab corners. I found one spot of rust on driver side floor by kick panel area where there is a crack in metal about 4" long (see close up picture) but thick metal here and easy to fix. The speedo needle is gone and numbers cannot be read, so it needs restored. Windshield crank is there but stuck closed so mech needs soaked w/ oil before trying it. I only have 4 stock rims, no spare tire. The hood is dent free and in really good shape. Both rear fenders were cut off to fit the farmer bumper in place. The pass rear fender is rough w/ a big welded area on rear (see close ups of fenders). Both fronts had welded cracks in center of opening..typical for ranch trucks on rough roads. All 4 fenders have dents in them and I pounded out largest ones but need more work or just leave them AS IS and put modern drive train in it. The wiring on truck needs completely redone. There is a rust hole in bottom rear corner of pass door about 4" by 2 1/2" wide, just on skin. Also there is a hole punched in door skin up by handle about 2" long. I do not have the keys. New parts are : side view mirror, driver headlight bezel, ash tray knob, battery cover in floor pan, and both chains on tailgate. There are a few dents on back of cab you can see in pics, glass is all bad except rear glass. All rubber parts are bad, but I have all the interior trim strips in great shape. I also have steel fan for engine and will be included. Wood in bed was replaced and steel added over it....wood in fantastic shape. Truck will run for full 10 days......not closing auction early. High bidder at end owns it. It is in Encampment WY 82325 and does not run nor has brakes. Semi can get easily to my driveway, but all shipping is up to you. I can deliver w/in a reasonable distance, but email me thru Ebay for info on this option. I WILL NOT TAKE PAYPAL unless you want to pay their high fees. I will take BANK WIRE TRANSFER for payment or cash in person upon pickup. Please ask questions before bidding, as I will send more pics of anything and answer promptly all questions....Thanks !
