READER AD: 1950 Chevrolet 3800 1-Ton

Reader Jim H has two classic Chevy trucks that need to go. The first one up is this 1950 model, which is a 3800 1-Ton. It’s going to need plenty of work, but it appears to be complete and is fairly solid considering it’s been sitting out in the elements in Grand Forks, North Dakota. If you’ve been on the hunt for a restoration project or a truck to build into a rat rod, this one would definitely be worth a closer look! You can find more info on this truck via the link below.

What Makes It Special? This 1950 Advanced Design Chevrolet 1 ton pickup hasn’t been running since about 1980. It needs restoration, including replacing the cab floors. The cab corners may need repair but they look to be in OK condition. The left rear fender has a dent and will need sheet metal work. The gauges will also need restoration or replacement.

Body Condition: Needs body work but complete. Cab corners may need repair along with fenders.

Mechanical Condition: It is in non-running condition, but everything is here. I believe it’s the original 216 ci engine. All stock otherwise.

    I may have underestimated when last running. The title on the pickup is 1997. The cab floor pans need replacement. All depends on what level of restoration one has in mind.

    I have lowered the price to $1500. It’s still on Craigs List at Grand Forks, ND.
