Description

The first Chevrolet pickup truck appeared in 1924, though in-house designs did not appear until 1930. ‘C’ indicated two-wheel drive. General Motors’ first major redesign post-WW2, the Advance-Design series was billed as a bigger, stronger, and sleeker design in comparison to the earlier GM AK series. First available on Saturday 28th June 1947, these trucks were sold with various minor changes over the years until 25th March 1955, when the Task Force Series trucks replaced the aging Advance-Design model.

Subtle changes throughout production years meant that 1953 was the last year for the 216 in inline-six. Hood side emblems now only read 3100, 3600, 3800, 4400, or 6400 in large print; door post ID plate was now blue with silver letters (previous models used black with silver letters). The last year to use wooden blocks as bed supports. New serial number codes were H ½ ton, J ¾ ton, & L 1 ton.

This 1953 3100 Stepside pick-up was brought to the UK in July 2013 from California and sympathetically restored to a high standard. Works included a complete respray in Orange with Black interior upholstery; the mechanics were checked over and the engine, transmission, chassis and interior are all described as being in good condition. The car is UK registered and has a current MOT until June 2016.
