1952 Chevy 3100 Project

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

As the truck market continues to become more popular, more trucks will appear on the market in various conditions. Buying one at the right price in the right condition is the desired outcome. This 1952 Chevy 3100 is waiting for an open bid of $4,500 with a reserve, or buy it now for $7,500. It is currently residing in Bremen, Georgia and has a clear title and VIN listed.  You can view more about it on eBay.

According to the listing, the engine is a 235 cubic inch 6 cylinder that is connected to a 3-speed manual transmission, on the tree. The listing states that it does not run and has been sitting for 3 years. It does look like it is mechanically all there, so it might not take too much to get it running. Then again, depending on what your plan is, that might not be needed. Swapping in a new engine shouldn’t be too hard.

Inside, the bench seat is in surprisingly good condition. The headliner, however, is not. According to the listing, and backed up by a photo, the gauges are still there. There is even a radio and gun racks. Sadly, the floors are incredibly rusty and have holes in places. There are no photos of the underside of the truck, so it is hard to tell how much more rust is eating away at the truck, but if it isn’t too bad underneath, the floors should be a relatively simple fix.

There are rust patches and holes all over the truck. Inside the bed is solid brown surface. While it all looks good, if the important areas are patched up and you can get it running, it might not be that bad of a rolling project. It could always be a statement pieces as well, to sit out on a roadside to attract customers. Although, it seems too nice to do that. The seller says that there is good money in them if they are restored. It just might take good money to get it in that condition. At that point, it might be more fun to keep it.

    If this is a barn find, the barn must have had one helluva leaky roof. I wouldn’t touch it without a tetanus booster first.

    This rust bucket isn’t worth half his BIN.

      I think someone’s finger got stuck on an extra zero I’d bid $450.00….period. Including tires and wheels. Basically, I like these old trucks. Would really like to have one. Just not this one.

    If you’re not in a hurry you can find much better deals than this one. Meaning to say that his price is too high and for what you’d end up spending plus the buy in I feel that one could do much better if you were able to wait.

    I agree NotSure. You really could do
    much better than this truck. Just to
    much body rot for me to deal with.
    The only thing going for it is that it
    could be a runner with a little effort.
    If you just had to have it, you’d be
    smart to make them a lowball offer
    on the truck. After all, what can they
    do, say “Hell no” and turn you down?
    It would be their loss and not yours.
    Just my 2 cents….

    This truck comes with a ‘easy rider rifle rack’. Most certainly can’t have one of these anymore.
