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

Lots of Ford pickups for sale, lots of Chevy pickups for sale, but you just dont see many early Dodge pickups, do you? This big ol 1952 Dodge B-series stake-bed truck has a very clean, honest, two-tone look and surprisingly decent road manners, and enough power left in its 236 Flathead 6 to pull away half of Home Depot. With the vintage pickup truck market heating up, wouldnt you rather drive a Dodge? This pugnacious bulldog of a truck is as ram tough as anything built today with a wonderful vintage look. The B-Series trucks were always more modern-looking than a comparable Ford or Chevy, and Dodge was the first to roll out an all-new truck following the war. Clean flanks and a raised hood make it seem more modern and the bed is a no-nonsense flat wood-stake unit with plenty of room to haul just about anything. Red on Light Blue are the colors Amsco Steel right here in Ft. Worth paints many of their transport trucks in, and its a cool color combination on this unique vintage pickup truck. The finish was quite nicely done a few years back and it still has a very clean smooth shine, so its ready to show off or put in some work. But whether that work is actual hauling or just promoting a business, this old Dodge will get the job done. With a painted front grille, brush guard, and bumper and the addition of the stake bed, most of the chrome is long gone, which is perfectly fine with this cool paint scheme, and helps the minimal shiny bits on the badges and headlight rings to really pop out. Original door handles, wide-armed side mirrors, and that familiar Job Rated badge centered in the horizontal grille all add to the quirky appeal of this vintage bruiser. And unlike so many of its peers, this pickup offers a simple wood bed floor, which is how many of the were used new. Put it to work! Inside, the basic black cloth and vinyl bench seat is supportive enough for a day of driving, but the interior really is as simple as you can get. Durable rubber floor mats, a big, rugged steering wheel, and easy-to-read gauges set inside the painted dash are all part of the working class look of this pickup. Theres a distinct familial resemblance to big brother Power Wagon, although these trucks are a lot more road-friendly and easy to drive. Youll note several switches and levers but none are for turn signals since they were still optional in these trucks, and while theres also a couple speaker grills in the dash, a radio was optional as well and is not included in this original spec 52. It does, however, offer an accessory heater thats fairly effective and a big, airy greenhouse that makes it feel spacious inside. Wrap your hand around that comfortable steering wheel, grab the tall shifter thats a short reach away, and youre immediately transported back to the 50s. Under the unique side-tilting hood is the believed-to-be-original 236 cubic inch Flathead inline-six which has proven itself time and time again as a torquey and reliable runner. Its remarkably smooth and tractable around town, and gives the truck energetic performance and near-bulletproof dependability when properly cared for. The engine bay is very tidy, with black inner fenders and a light blue firewall to match the exterior, and it still uses an oil bath air cleaner with proper decals and a correct carburetor, all of which work just as they should. The red engine block was nicely painted and detailed for a tidy-looking engine bay and serviceability is excellent, because you can get to everything with relative ease. A 4-speed manual transmission with a granny-low gear is clearly made for truck duties, but itll happily cruise all day without complaint and the ride is reasonably good for a pickup truck of this size. A single exhaust system with an original-style muffler gives it a bit of a throaty sound and the chassis is clean and neat, suggesting a life someplace away from snow and salt. Take a closer look and youll see that the even the wood underneath is very solid, and a hydraulic brake booster mounted to the frame helps stop this big dawg with relative ease. Blacked-out steel wheels provide wonderful contrast (check out the deep dish on the rear dually and you can see the resemblance to modern Alcoa wheels) and wear correct-looking bias-ply tires all around. If youre a Dodge fan or just want to stand out a bit, this awesome vintage truck has a lot to offer and isnt afraid to go to work with you. Call today!
