Service Station Pusher: 1952 Chevrolet Truck


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

The seller of this 1952 Chevy 3-window ton truck is only asking $675! It used to be a “pusher vehicle” at a service station. It’s a 3/4 ton long bed with the original engine and gearbox. The owner does not have a title but claims “they are easy to come by for around $300.”  I don’t know about that, but maybe some of you have experience getting one in Missouri? Find it here on craigslist out of St. Louis.

The original set of bumpers in the bed are included with the truck.  There is some rust in the bed.

The owner says the floors are rusty and I see lots of “patina” present.

So, this could be an interesting sub $1,500 project.  Are you interested?

    Got that right I just got up 4:30am and saw this and since I’m in Missouri but on the other side of the state I figured what the heck $675 BUT as usual it’s gone.

    There you go, probably one of the hottest segments of our hobby right now. I bet if I had 5 of these, under a grand, any make, they’d be gone in a week. ( I’d keep one for myself, of course) I’ve found, middle aged women today are taking a shine to these, as they want to relive their youth with a truck like dad’s or grandpa’s. Better check that RF wheel bearing with the bearing cap missing. ( btw, I think the BF’s secret is out)

    The 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks are increasing in popularity. I’m glad to see it as they were an important part of my earlier years. I wish I had the time and space to tackle a couple of projects like this. But I’ve got to concentrate on what I’ve already got…

    Being from Missouri and having to apply for lost title, it is a very simple process, you go and fill out the lost title form, submit it with the fee, and with in about 30 days if there is no problem or lien against the title, you got a new title. I applied for one a few years ago for a truck I bought from an estate sale, and the family never could find the title, so I went up and like I said with in less than 30 days I had the new title. Was even able to drive the truck with temp tags on it.
