Very clean 1951 Chevy 3100 pickup. Older restoration but looks and runs great! I have owned this classic for about 3 years and have really enjoyed driving and showing it…even won a few tropies with it. I have owned a few classics and it’s just time to move on to something else. I am the second owner having purchased it from a person in Michigan. She had inherited it from her father and had a restoration compeleted in 1997. She had it stored inside ever since and decided it was time to part with it. I have all of the receipts from the mechanical and body work from then. The itemized work performed is pretty extensive so I wont list them here, but will include the receipts The paint is still pretty good except for a few small spots that I had touched up and are hardly noticible.
Since I have had the truck, I have had several things worked on to make it run better than when I got it. Including: re-built starter, new battery, transmission adjustment and clutch adjustment. Ignition system: New points, condenser, distributor rotor. Fuel system: cleaned fuel pump, new carb kit. New Coker “Classic” reproduction whitewall tires. Original skinny size 6.00 X 16 tube type. I had a 12 volt conversion done. Lights and gauges work. Seats and headliner are in great condition from the original restoration. I have not noticed any body surface rust. Always trailered to car shows. Never gone over 45 mph, although it can go faster. The odometer is at 60401, but it doesn’t advance. New windshield glass.
My mechanic who completed the work for me called the truck a “good driver that shows well”. It’s not perfect, but is in great condition. It is best to double clutch between 2nd and 3rd gear to avoid any grinding. It leaks a tiny bit of oil, but not enough to be concerned with. Comes with the original owners manual, old and newer work receipts, a few parts catalogs and an indoor cover.
I have no problem cooperating with a shipper to get it to your driveway. Title in hand.
Added note: I forgot to mention in the original write-up that there is a very small crack in the drivers side wing vent window where the latch is, at the very bottom. Just wanted to make sure that was included. I included a pic of it.
Engine: Original “Thriftmaster” in-line six, 216.5 cu. in., 92 h.p.
Trans: Original 3-speed manual column mount.
