Cool Classics: 9 Classic Chevrolet Trucks Reach 6 Figures

Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.


Classic Car Overview

Too much, not enough, or just right? This 1946 Ford pickup embodies a lot of tricks, but remains totally streetable and even usable as a pickup now and then. On the other hand, with bright red paint, an aggressive stance, and strong-running small block V8 under the hood, well, its hardly an introvert. Either way, if you want to get noticed, this is the ideal tool for the job. The first thing you notice about this truck is how well the paint works on the Fords curvy bodywork. It seems to highlight all the best-looking aspects of the truck, while simultaneously fooling the viewer into forgetting this was ever a working-class machine. Of course, a deep shade of red has always been a favorite among pickup truck buyers, and few trucks wear it better than this. It hasnt been radically modified externally, retaining all its original trim, but the attention to detail is what sets this truck apart. Finish quality is quite good, and while it does have some time and mileage on it, the traditional look will never go out of style. Of course, as a vintage pickup, the bed was finished with super-durable diamond-plate, and the original tailgate still proudly shows off its Ford script face. Theres plenty of chrome, too, from the wonderful waterfall grille and hood ornament to the twin taillights out back that retain an old-fashioned hotrod look, and all of it was recently refinished so it looks awesome. As traditional as the exterior is, the interior is fully restored as well and wonderfully subdued, offering plenty of creature comforts in a stylish environment. Tan vinyl is a favorite of rodders because it looks great and wears like iron, looking fresh for years and years without a lot of effort. The neatly upholstered bench seat provides plenty of room even for 6-footers, making this a true 2-seater, and whomever was in charge of the upholstery department when this truck was built did one heck of a job. Note the matching door panels, the neatly integrated OEM door handles turned on their ends, and the nicely painted dashboard. That dash features two classy gauges from Dolphin, but other than that, its all stock and very presentable with glossy paint that matches the exterior. Overhead, youll find a neatly finished headliner that matches the finish and quality of the seats and door panels. And with power steering, a tilt steering column, and four-wheel discs, its a truck you could drive every day. Simple is always better when youre building a rod you can drive, which explains the 283 cubic inch Chevy under the hood. As the truck has only been driven 1,269 miles since the completion of the build, the engine bay is nicely dressed with chrome on the valve covers and air cleaner. It starts quickly and easily, and thanks to modern accessories, an Edelbrock 600CFM carburetor and aluminum intake, HEI ignition, and other traditional power-building parts, it should be plenty entertaining on the street with no worries about reliability. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a Ford 9-inch rear, which, along with the rest of the frame, has been painted basic black to look properly heavy-duty. The front clip was replaced with a Mustang II set-up with power rack-and pinion steering and dual Magnaflow mufflers fed from shorty headers give it that distinctive sound. Bright Eagle alloy wheels look racy and enhance the overall smooth look, and wear 235/75/15 blackwall radials. This fantastic Ford is one of those customs that will keep your attention for a long time after youve taken it home. Call today!
