1953 Chevrolet Other Pickups
This is my 1953 Chevy 3100. I bought the truck a little over a year ago as a project. This truck sat in a field in Missouri for at least 35 years waiting for it's chance at new life. Last registered in 1982! you can see the deceased previous owners name on the rear of the box on drivers side, I bought it from his daughter. truck is all together and ready to go .with only 100 miles sense completion (this will go up) if your looking for a cool Patina Truck, Hot Rod or Shop Truck this is it!
The body was in really good shape and needed minor repairs only. Both cab corners had a hole patched but they were not replaced. As you can see in the photos only the front half of the floor was replaced and a transmission hump was fabricated. Both running boards have rust through but are solid and you can stand on them. drivers side cab in front of door has a rust hole about the size of a half dollar. Dents, scratches, dings and wonderful Real patina that only nature can make!
