1952 Chevy 1/2 Ton 5-window Pickup

Custom Patina Truck



1952 Chevrolet 1/2-ton 5-window pickup truck in original paint! Well, sort of....what paint you see on it is indeed factory original, but everything else is the work of Mother Nature, who added a cool factor earned from many years spent out in a west coast desert. Professional builders and painters try to replicate this "patina," some come close, but no one can achieve this look as well as Mother Nature's hand, not even Chip Foose! It's a real-deal sun-worn truck wearing all of its original tin, with no rot!!!...a very rare find!


The drivetrain is a straight six 250 cubic inch Chevy engine that was rebuilt and runs strong and very, very smoothly. The three on the tree column-shifted manual transmission works equally as smoothly and adds another touch of cool factor! Original closed driveshaft and rear axle round out the smooth drivetrain. This beautiful and desirable 5-window pickup also features solid rust-free floor pans, no rust on the door sills, hinge pockets, or door rust anywhere except the surface corrosion that you see! It has all new braking system components, new bed wood, new exhaust system, new shock absorbers, new door glass and channel felts, a sliding rear window, crystal clear windshield, new glass weatherstripping, new Coker whitewall tires, working vent windows - (remember those?) - all new wiring harness from headlights to turn signals, a modern blade-style fuse block, a modern 12-volt charging system, a new battery hold down and aftermarket gauges that are set into a nostalgic finned aluminum panel to compliment and blend in with the design of the iconic Chevy AD dashboard. The seat upholstery is a beautiful tan/saddle with no rips or tears, the matching brown carpet is of high quality and brand new, as is the headliner, the door cards and even the leather grained steering wheel cover to protect your delicate skin.......all of this conspires to make you feel like you're sitting in a classic Mercedes Benz! The sun visor is an original Fulton period accessory, adding another touch of shaded cool to this ride! 

The truck's tin is very solid, there is no evidence of any prior bodywork or bondo anywhere, even in all the typical areas that these usually rot out, attesting to a life spent in a dry climate. The panel gaps are as close to perfect as we've ever seen, even on custom trucks! The doors close solidly and open with ease. The truck ambles down the road wonderfully and with ease with a compliant ride and a coolness that not many other vehicles can offer, certainly none at this price point! The steering is light and easy with no notchiness at all, and the brakes stop powerfully with no side-side pulling at all. Total confidence in driving and braking! 

Folks, when they are right, they are right, and this one is right in all the right ways, including its price tag: at only $17,500 this wonderfully preserved relic of Americana can be yours right now! A perfect backdrop to advertise your business, or use it as a prop for movie shoots, weddings, for hay rides, bat mitzvahs, divorce parties, trips to Home Depot, you name it! The possibilities are endless, and one thing is guaranteed: you will draw attention EVERYWHERE you go, like the Ferrari guys do, but better!
