The classic front grille assembly is further highlighted by this vintage polished Grille Guard know as "The Smash Hit." This rare setup was manufactured by the Perry Company in Waco, Texas decades ago.

The backside features these double doors, solid throughout and easily to open and close.
The interior features this wood paneling and painted and clean wheel wells. The side and top paneling is bare with exception of the restored headliner in the driver/passenger cab.

Have a seat and stay a spell. This is a turn-key truck that runs smooth and drives good. The brakes stop as they should and the "three on the tree" manual transmission is easy to shift through the gears.

The engine compartment displays this stout Thriftmaster Six 216.5 c.i. 6 cylinder engine. This powerplant is a good runner and starter. Further inspection of the engine compartment will confirm paint and detailed components throughout. This engine bay and engine is well detailed and in exceptional condition.

The undercarriage features solid flooring throughout. You'll note the running boards, door undersides, and fenders are steel on this rare Chevy.

The steel sun vistor is painted in Dove Gray to match the side panel accents.

All of the glass is in good condition.

The door panels are clean and detailed, showcasing their original hardware and handles.

This beautiful stance is thanks to the restored & painted 16-inch steel wheels wrapped in Firestone Deluxe Champion Wide Whitewall tires.

The switch operated dome light works.

The gauges are working.


The steel flooring is solid throughout. The battery is located under a special metal door on the passenger side floorboard.


The original V.I.N. plate is in place.
