Lot #24 - This is a stunning example of a 1926 Chevrolet 1 ton truck in the true form in which it came from the factory, along with the after purchase cab and chassis. The truck has been preserved in its original condition over the past 88 years. The exterior wood, wheels and fenders, hardware and nuts and bolts have been untouched and retain their original patina which has aged the truck gracefully. The tires have been replaced sometime throughout its history. All the glass is period-correct, but unable to verify its originality. The original vinyl roof looks to have been replaced at one time with original type "cobra" grain material. The interior also retains all of the original wood, steering wheel, all gauges, pedals, windshield wiper, gas tank under seat and tilt windshield. The seat has been reupholstered but maintains its original spring base. Equipped with the original 171cid 4 cylinder engine with only 8,800 original miles showing on the odometer and floor shifted 3-speed manual transmission. The motor has replaced plugs, wires, hoses, fuel lines, fuel filter and water pump replaced, along with a carburetor and fuel vacuum pump rebuild. Maintenance of all fluids, oils and greases have always been checked thoroughly. The undercarriage has also been kept preserved as nice as the rest of the truck. The truck also retained all of its original cloth wiring, but the entire truck was rewired with the original color coded cloth wiring for safety reasons. This truck starts, runs and drives nicely for its age. Seller represents 8800 original miles, not indicated on title.
