This listing is for my 1957 Chevy 3100 short wheelbase half ton stepside pickup. It is a full project having been off the road for some time and is devoid of it's engine and transmission. This has been a V8 auto truck and the twin exhausts are still in place as is the brake booster. It has it's original chassis and suspension (one spring has a broken leaf), but has had a disc brake upgrade to the front axle.
It is pretty solid all round with good floors, decent doors and the pickup body is solid all round and has very few dings. The front wings have bondo either for dings or rust so will need repairs and the cab inner steps may require a little welding if you want them to be perfect. It has the one year '57 grille but the bonnet is from a '55 or '56. Front bumper is just loosely fitted and is upside down!?? don't know why.
Rear window is the rare and sought after big back window and the glass here is excellent. The other glass is good apart from the windscreen and driver door drop glass which are cracked. These windows are readily available in the UK, screen is about £235.
Interior wise, seat is there but needs re-stuffing and a new cover, dash is there but we obviously don't know what works and what doesn't, and the trans shifter is still in place too.
Pickup bed wood is quite solid for it's age and is usable as-is.
Truck is UK registered and has a current free tax disc.
You could have this up and running in no time if you just want to fit an engine and 'box and leave the bodywork as is. The big back window trucks are getting harder to find now, and this one is an easy restoration project, parts are cheap and readily available. Restore it, use it for a season and sell it on for profit as these are going up in value all the time, getting harder to buy in the States as they are wanting more for them all the time.
I've priced this as keenly as I can, so no offers please, no part ex and no swaps, just money. Payment can be by cash on collection or a bank transfer or cheque. I can arrange delivery no problem at good rates from a reputable car carrier, e.g. Essex for about £300.
Please phone Jim on 07593 187939. If you can't get me, I may be driving or making a noise in the workshop, maybe in the paint booth. Leave a text or e-mail me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will get right back to you.
