1951 Chevrolet Other Pickups

For sale is a very nice Garage find 1951 Chevy Truck. This truck was part of the Alexander Drapanas Estate collection. Dr Drapanas was a collector and racer his whole life, his truck was one of his favorite drivers. In 1980 the clutch let go and the car was parked in his climate controlled building. Well as life would have it he started the repairs and never finished due to health issues that plagued him for the last few years of his life. The family held onto most of his cars including this one until a few months ago. When we purchased the truck we replaced the clutch assembly and throw out bearing, nd resurfaced the flywheel. New gas and this beauty started right up, e then replaced the rear brakes which had become locked. The truck now is a running and driving but will need tires and some new hoses before being placed back into daily service. The body is in great shape not a bondo bucket like most trucks of this age. The floors are rock solid and perfect as are the doors and bed. The fenders are all steel and in great shape except for two small spots on the top of the front fenders where lights were once mounted. All the glass is very nice and wood bed is very presentable. The drive train is all form a 1967 Barracuda with 273 commando V8, speed trans with pistol grip shifter, nd posi rear. The truck has all drum brakes with cool vintage Kelsey hays kidney bean wheels. The interior is in great shape with very nice buckets and perfect headliner and the dash has never been cut up. The paint is a 10ft being around 40 years old it could use a repaint for perfection or just drive it the way it is.From talking with the family the truck was built in the early 70's and was built with no expensive spared at the time. Here is your chance to own a great truck that will not need thousands spent on metal replacement. We can assist in shipping domestic and internationally, e reserve the right to end the auction early the truck is for sale locally.
