For Sale: Really Cool and Well Restored 1952 Chevrolet Utility Truck

Recommended Posts


1952 Chevrolet 3800 Utility Truck. This is a really neat truck that has been well cared for and nicely restored. The cosmetic restoration was completed about five years ago and has been driven virtually no miles since. Careful inspection shows this truck to have always been well maintained, not abused and not left out in the elements.
The dark green color is correct and gives a great period look. It could be the perfect background color for a snazzy logo. The paint is nicely applied and is probably better than when it was new. There are no signs of body filler or patch panels. The doors and hood fit as they should. The glass is new, the gaskets are new, the chrome is new. The lights and wipers are new. The headliner, floor mat and visors are new. The seat has never been recovered and remains in very nice condition.
This truck approximately 69,000 miles on it. We were told it was originally used by the Forestry Department. It was then owned by an Illinois man for 50 years before being purchased by the prior owner and restored. The restoration was well done and the truck looks like it would have when it was new.
Even the tarp was perfectly recreated. A second tarp of a different color (also new) resides beneath the seat. There are trim rings and two sets of hubcaps, one for show and one for driving.
The rare utility body is like new. The doors and compartments are in great condition. The tailgate is perfect.
The original set of wheels are covered in ply tires and there are some extra wheels/tires included. We could also supply a modern set of wheels with radial tires if you would prefer. This truck runs and drives great and all the
features function properly. The doors lock via key. We know the cost of restoration was substantial-certainly more than our selling price of 13,000.00. This truck has a lot of potential-whether it is to advertise your business, a neat addition to your truck collection, to take to Home Depot or put back into work and use as originally intended. Whatever you decide, it is ready to use and have fun with. Located near Jefferson, WI.
