1949 Chevrolet 5 window 5 window1949 Chevy 5 Window TruckDump Bed ChassisSeems to be the smaller 1 ton chassis I believe a pick up bed would fit on this pretty easy.Questions about dimensions have been asked so approximates are as follows (I will give you a comparison with my 85 F350 crew cab dually in parentheses) Wheel base length is 138" (170) Tire width to outside of duals is 84" (84)Box width 94" (84)Box length 111" (108)Front of box to center of rear wheels 58 (56)Dump bed with dual 2 stage rams PTO driven. Dual rear wheels(which could easily be changed to SRW also) street tires match nicely(not street tire lug tire mix like I have seen on many of these trucks) tires have minor weather checking from age and have good tread...which is quite the bonus to have nice tires because that alone would run over $1000...so that's quite the bonus.Rims are a cool 8 hole design.Drive TerrainOriginal 216 engine runs pretty good but its been sitting a while so it will probably need the carb cleaned (but it runs plenty good enough for loading until you have time to tinker with it) and it clatters a bit as most of these ole trucks do so it will probably need some shims on the Babbitt Bearings some time in the future pretty easy fix. 4 speed tranny seems to work good and I believe it has a one speed rear end. Oh and it will need a muffler unless you like the rat rod sound. BodyDesirable 5 window cab. Pretty nice old truck looks like a farmer enamel paint job on it you could probably cut and buff it to fix some of its foibles but I don't know if I would bother I would just repaint it eventually but it looks good going down the road as you can see its a good 20 footer (or 10 footer at 20MPH ;-) but don't expect much more than that but it seems to have done its job of keeping the rust away under doors are solid cab corners are solid just a few paint bubbles under the drivers corner the only rust I found was a quarter sized hole in the front pass floor and about a dollar bill sized hole on the front drivers side seam where it meets the kick panel I pulled the seat and the original floor mat back to get a picture of that for you. No cracks in the Glass some pitting on the hood emblem and front bumperall the chrome/stainless around the windows and on the grill is in really good shape. Interior gauge glass is good will need the seat recovered and a new headliner/visor has the original door panels which are in pretty good shape doors close solid(drivers sticks a little) windows roll up and down smooth. Headlights work blinkers work taillights out(might just need bulbs) I never tried the heater I know it will need new heat vent tubes...Box wood on the bottom will need some boards replaced I would just do it all (treated 2x6 works good) unless you went with a bed the sides are old but seem solid around the box on the bottom is a 6" aluminum surround which I think would look great sanded down with 400 and polished. Plan to do a little tinkering with it and lubing and loosening vents and such but all in all its a pretty nice truck that you can drive and have look good going down the road as you work on restoring it. As for shippingJust getting a quote today will not be accurate your actual shipment costs may be 1/4 to 1/2 of the brokers first offer.For those who don't know all "brokers" use the same "network" of truckers so it doesn't matter much which brokerage company you use as far as that goes(I'm not saying there aren't separate entities out there but most truckers are on the network thats just the best way of being efficient). Brokers put an offer of your shipment out on the network of truckers and usually at much less than they quoted you so don't just accept the first brokers offer use one brokerage company against the other when they see you aren't desperate they will come down on the prices this can take a 2 to 4 weeks to get the best deal. So I try to be reasonable on the timeline for shipping as that's the best way for you to get a good deal on shipping but be reasonable...it shouldn't take more than a couple months. If it takes that long perhaps you're not being reasonably respectful of what it takes to get an automobile into your driveway. Feel free to make an offer on anything below I want to move some things out to make room for more! If you have any other questions don’t hesitate...Thankschad Other vehicles for sale 1938 Chevy Grain truck runs and drives 3500 (SOLD) 1938 Ford tow truck F3 2400 (SOLD) 1939 Chevy one ton 3500 (SOLD)1940 Ford pickup disassembled can put back as roller for shipping 2500 1940 grain truck 21001941 Ford pickup 55001941 Ford COE runs and drives needs brake work new smoked glass 95001949 Chevy Standard oil fuel truck 15001950 Chevy COE (SOLD)1950 chevy 5 window pickup disasswmbeled for build up 20001948 chevy grain truck dump runs and drives 2000 1951 Ford F3 runs and drives 25001953 GMC COE 3500 (SOLD)1959 Edsel Wagon RARE 9 seater runs and moves 3500 1964 1/2 Mustang runs and drives needs restored 2500 1967 Mustang convertible roller shell 2000 1967-68 Mustang Fastback 390 S code roller shell 12000 (SOLD) 60's Ford GT 40 Fiberfab Valkyrie kit car roller shell 2000 1972 Mustang Mach I runs and drives needs restored 4950 1973 Mustang Mach I runs and drives tranny slips needs restored 4500 1973 Mustang Fastback 400 hp new engine and tranny. 8500 On May-25-15 at 06:22:23 PDT seller added the following information:

Classic Pickup Trucks Increase in Price and Popularity at AuctionsOn the third day of the 40th annual Barrett-Jackson classic car auction last week in Scottsdale Ariz. the vehicle that brought the most money – a whopping $157300 – was – wait for it – a ...truck... Of the 250 or so vehicles that sold that day at what’s billed as the “world’s greatest collector car event” the highest bid...It was a ... truck... that was deemed worthy of the most money.
Spending $157300 may pale in comparison to the $2.09 million someone would pay later in the week at the Gooding & Co. auction for a 2006 Ferrari FXX road racer but there’s no doubt that trucks have become genuine collectibles. The 1955 Chevy 3100 was one of 17 trucks up for bids that day and the day before that was something of a “...truck day” at Barrett-Jackson with nearly 50 crossing the block and finding new owners.
At an auction-week seminar on car collecting McKeel Hagerty whose family-owned company is the world’s largest insurer of classic vehicles was asked what “sleeper vehicles” are just about ready to wake up the hobby. His response: 1950s and 1960s ... trucks which he said are an especially good way for newcomers to get involved because they’re relatively inexpensive to buy and spare parts are plentiful.
“... trucks are a great way to start for young people” Hagerty said “and they’re remarkably easy to work on.” Hagerty also said you get the added bonus of practicality — you can use your classic truck for weekend home-improvement errands.“There’s a great romance to old pickups” said Donald Osborne a classic car collector appraiser and writer...Dave Kinney who has bought sold and appraised classic cars for many years and is the founder of a collector-car pricing guide now sponsored by Hagerty noted that pickups from the ‘50s and ‘60s “are cheap to restore and you can use them to move things around.”
While people would think you’re a rich snob if you flaunted your wealth by driving around town in your million-dollar roadster “nobody hates you” when you’re in an old pickup Kinney said. “No one thinks you are a rich bleep” he said. “You get thumbs up not middle fingers.”
