The LO series replaced the LM series in 1928, but then the LO was succeeded at mid-year by the LP Series. Actually, the LO series was almost identical to the LM series, and can be considered a transitional vehicle. However, the LP series offered many mechanical improvements over previous truck models. There was a new 4-speed transmission as standard equipment (a lighter version of a 4-speed transmission was an option before) and mechanical 4-wheel brakes (LP is the first Chevrolet truck equipped with front brakes). The 4-cylinder engine developed 35 hp.
For consignment a barn find condition 1-ton LP Chevrolet pickup truck. With additional added options of running boards, fenders, and a Chevrolet chassis on which is a wood bed and steel cab. Seats and steering wheel are workable on the interior, however for the mechanicals they will need some wrenching and TLC.
Patina panels showing surface rust, aged paint, and some missing add ons (A pillar light inserts) it is all metal and mostly there. From its cowled radiator surround, to the flip up two sided hood, cab enclosure with doors, and wood bed in nice condition, it has the beginnings of a restoration within reach, not too far gone. Fenders and running boards are intact as are wood spoked wheels and the appearance of a newer front bumper, which seems out of place given the rest of the truck's condition.
A nice condition (slightly dirty) black split seat full back bench seat retains its springs, and upholstery remains in good condition in its black vinyl state. A large wood rimmed steering wheel fronts the original utilitarian dash showing a trio of inserts within the surface rusted metal dash front. Floors and door panels are made of wood, and a long gear shift rises up for the driver. Headliner is metal and shows more surface rust, and all glass is in and not cracked.
171 cubes showing up as an inline 4 cylinder is within the unrestored engine bay under the dual cowls. A 1-barrel carburetor is atop, and a 4-speed manual on the back of the engine. This power plant is not hooked up electrically or cooling wise, so it is in not running or cranking condition.
A strong metal frame with just slight surface rust supports the wood bed, metal seat floorpan, and wood floor, as well as a structurally sound engine mounting. Heavy surface rust is seen on most parts, but no invasive damaging rust. This was the first year for front drum brakes, and these are mechanical brakes which are on all 4 corners. Leaf spring suspension is also seen throughout the bottom.
An open palette with workable invasive rust-free steel panels. Fenders and running boards, a wood bed, and all there interior, definitely offers the ability to bring her back and have a nice example of the LP series truck of a 1928 bowtie truck.
