About 1951 Chevy Truck
That massive chunk of rusted metal might actually be the sturdiest vehicle you have ever seen in your life. A classic 1951 Chevy truck is one of those rock-solid autos that you see at accident scenes, unscratched, surround by the scraps of lesser cars. With a 216 cubic-inch, or 3.5-liter, I6 engine, this two-door automobile exudes raw, old-fashioned power and has definitely earned its nickname, "loadmaster." The doors come with window vents, and earlier versions of the pickup truck feature a gasoline tank filler neck on the passenger side of the bed that newer versions have on the area behind the passenger door. With eight boards per bed, easily replaceable chrome window handle knobs, an 80-mile-per-hour speedometer, and chrome wiper knob, the 1951 Chevy truck makes for an excellent restoration project. This version of the Advance Series by General Motors also comes with new serial number codes, such as JR three-quarter ton, JP half-ton, and JS one-ton, unlike its predecessors. With the vast variety of inventory available on eBay, you can find the right parts to restore vintage Chevy trucks of any size, and the trucks themselves, from half to full-ton-capacity pickups with long wheelbases, retro charm, and that tough-as-nails construction to keep you safe.
