This 1950 'Advance Design' Chevrolet 3100 features a great combination of classic virtues and drivability and it's guaranteed to hold its appeal for as long as you own it.
The beneficiary of a two and a half year frame off restoration; every aspect of this award winning truck has been meticulously restored to both preserve the beauty of the design and make the truck more roadworthy. Up front, the familiar chrome grille looks excellent against this trucks bright red exterior. New wide set headlights are complemented by non-original, round amber lights mounted above the pristine front bumper for a look that appears factory correct. The high profile hood features a classic Chevrolet emblem that's in excellent condition up front and great looking "Chevrolet 3100" emblems on each side. The two piece windshield is divided by chrome and sits above a gold pinstripe which circles the whole cab. Behind the cab, a light oak bed is held together with new stainless skid strips and matching light oak bed rails with vintage replica Frontier Gas signs provide a great feeling of 50s service station nostalgia. Two gold pinstripes flow from the light oak bed rails down each of the bed posts to disguise one of the only hard edges on the truck.
Small flashes of new chrome such as a driver's side mirror, door handles, windshield wipers and cool contoured passenger side lock cover give the red exterior a tailored look. On the tailgate, an inverse red on black Chevrolet script is very well done and matches the Chevrolet script on the hub caps. A chrome rear bumper complements chrome tailgate chains and LED brake lights with chrome loomed wiring provide a finished look. Correct large domed center caps with matching trim rings are mounted to 16 inch body color wheels that wear Firestone 60.5 wide white wall tires.
Equipped with a modified Thriftmaster 216 inline six cylinder engine, the bay has a vintage hot rod look. Under hood detailing begins with a fresh coat of satin black paint on the inner fenders that contrasts to the familiar red on the firewall. The Thriftmaster motor is painted bright blue and features a two Rochester single barrel carburetors sitting atop a split manifold. The radiator and engine accessories are painted the same satin black as the engine compartment and blue spark plug wires with red boots are complemented by the finned Offenhauser valve cover. Two chrome air cleaners continue the vintage hot rod theme. All belts and hoses look great and ready for the road and the truck even comes equipped with a correct gloss black horn.
Crawling underneath this 1950 3100 reveals a clean frame with straight sheet metal that's coated in chassis black. A chrome oil pan serves as the main focal point at the bottom of the blue inline six. Correct leaf springs and drum brakes occupy all for corners of this chassis and a correct 3-speed transmission handles shifting duty. Power is put to the ground via a driver friendly Ford 9 inch rear end and a solid axle. A single muffler dual Exhaust system runs the whole length of the truck and meets stainless tips that hang under the curved rear bumper.
Inside, custom red and black seamless door panels include correct chrome window and door handles. A custom red and black bench seat has "Chevrolet" prominently stitched into the center of the back pad. A custom red headliner creates a more comfortable, cockpit like feeling. The dash features traditional stainless trim and a speedometer, a divided gauge with temperature, battery, fuel level and oil pressure, a glove box and a heater/defroster. On the correct black steering wheel a silver horn button mimics the stainless trim on the dash and connects the wheel to a body color steering column complete with a chrome turn signal lever and body color gear selector.

1950 Chevy Truck For Sale
Make no mistake about it, this 1950 3100 Chevy truck (216 engine) is not a
'show' truck - many upgrades to make it a 'daily driver', if desired
(although it could be turned into a 'show' truck rather easily--in
fantastic shape); it's rugged, and has been used for hauling dirt, lumber,
furniture, new appliances, et al. over the past 8 years (that's how long
I've had it).
Only rust is a quarter-sized on far righthand side of floorboard (certainly
not visible). It's been garaged the vast majority of the 8 years I've owned
it. I've never used it as a daily driver, and has probably driven, on
average, about 10 miles per month over the last 8 years.
It's super clean and a blast to drive (probably have been asked 6-8
times/year if I was interested in selling it). The engine purrs, starts
right up every time, in part due to the Pertronix electronic ignition I
installed in the distributor. It's simlply a great sounding engine
(original one, too, a 216).
Upgraded to 12-volt system
Air conditioning from Old Air Products (nice!), which was designed strictly
for '47-'54 Chevy trucks...fits snugly, unobtrusively under the dash as if
factory installed. New trinary switch to protect A/C compressor in event
A/C coolant/Freon gets low.
Pertronix electronic ignition installed (never change points/condenser
again), which greatly adds horsepower, and increases
starting ability and fuel economy.
New spark plug/Flamethrowercoil and wires.
Brand new chrome bumpers, both front and back.
Brand new rear bumper apron.
New paint job -- painted February '13.
New 60 Amp alternator (for upgraded 12-volt system/air conditioner).
Stereo added (designed specifically to fit perfectly in '50 Chevy dash),
which includes noise reducer. Has hook-ups for CD player
4-row Desert Radiator (perfect for Texas driving!)
Additional electric radiator pull fan)
New seat covers
New rubber flooring (what came with new '50 truck)

New Chevy stickers throughout (hubcaps, tailgate, hood)
New oak bed, sanded and refinished, including 2 coats of stain/protectorant

1950 Chevrolet Truck; running 216 engine.
I saved this one from the crusher. Perhaps one of my favorite sounds... a
running Stove bolt engine. I was able to get the numbers matching
(original) 216 engine running after sitting for nearly 20 years. Splash
oil lubricated connecting rods; pressured mains, cartridge style oil filer
and oil bath air filer. Short block is; as found but, I had the cylinder
head rebuilt with new: valves, guides, springs and seats. At the time of
this video, I had been working on the truck for over 1 year.
The truck was named Cannonball by the previous owner.
Watch for Cannonball Restoration videos in the future.
1950 Chevrolet: Morrison Farm Truck - /BIG MUSCLE
The 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Series pickup is the quintessential American farm
truck. However, after Craig Morrison of Art Morrison Enterprises found it
languishing in someone's front yard, this little farm truck went from
all-slo, to all-go. The original chassis was removed in favor of a new GT
Sport bolt-on unit, as was the original Chevy straight-six engine. In its
place sits a new GM Performance Parts crate motor with EFI injection that's
coupled to a Hughes Performance 4L60E automatic transmission. With the
original paint and interior still intact, this old truck has been given a
new lease on life while still retaining all the heritage that made it great
over 60 years ago.
The Last HEMI - Segment 1- The Journey Begins
In 1978, a 14 year old boy on his bicycle noticed the back end of a '71
Charger R/T sticking out of a garage. The HEMI badges were gone but, being
the son of a racer, he saw the black body stripes and knew there was
something special about the car.
After getting some pointers from his dad, the boy snuck in and popped the
hood. Sure enough, there was a 426 HEMI under there.
The journey was officially underway.
After some door to door detective work, the boy found the owner and made
initial contact. Though the Charger wasn't for sale, it was an important
first step. For most of the next decade, the boy would periodically check
in to see if the car was available, even offering to trade a clean 440
Charger at one point. The owner simply wouldn't budge.
By the 1990s, the boy, now in his mid-twenties, had bought and sold several
vintage Mopars but he'd never forgotten the Charger in his hometown.
Through a chance encounter at a garage sale, he found out the Dodge was
finally for sale. The owner had turned several buyers away but welcomed the
boy, remembering the years of calls and attempts to buy the car. A price
was agreed upon and the Charger finally came home.
Throughout the early 1990s, the car was shown in its unrestored state while
awaiting its turn to be rebuilt. This thing was a monster on the show
circuit. Luckily we have some photos as proof!
While going through the car, he located TWO broadcast sheets that were
found fully intact.
It showed a build date of June 18th, 1971 -- nearly 2 weeks after any other
HEMI car on record. After months of research, the boy was proven correct
for believing there was something special about the car back in 1978. It
was the final HEMI car ever produced.
Though there were already plans to restore the Charger, this new
information upped the ante considerably. The owner got in touch with the
team at RKM Performance Center and, together, it was decided to go all in.

restoration you won't want to miss.
132792 / 1966 Dodge Coronet 500
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/88uys6d
If you're in the market for a unique Mopar that's a blast to own and drive,
take a closer look at this 1966 Dodge Coronet. Featuring a laser straight
body, show quality paint and a big block backed by a 4-speed, this B-body
is a true crowd pleaser.
The unique color is Glasurit's Sunfire Yellow. Expertly sprayed over a
remarkably straight body, this shade of yellow is guaranteed to turn heads
at any show. Glance underneath the car and the glossy paintwork is
continued on the undercarriage. Being a mid-60s car, trim is kept minimal
but extra care has been taken to ensure each of those pieces looks showroom
fresh. From the chrome bumpers to the stainless window trim, every bit
Under the hood, the original 361 V8 has been replaced by a 440 Magnum.
Factory appearing pieces such as the radiator, battery, horns and decals
lend the bay a stock look while a closer inspection reveals several
Edelbrock components such as the aluminum intake manifold and
Performer-series carburetor. The setup breathes through factory cast iron
Exhausts manifolds connected to a 3"
true dual Exhaust system with Dynomax turbo mufflers.
The 440 is backed by an A833 4-speed manual transmission that makes this
Dodge a blast to drive. Ride control comes courtesy of a stock combination
of torsion bars and leaf springs, rebuilt with amazing attention to detail.
Power meets the ground through a 8.75 rear end that drive a set of Magnum
500 wheels wrapped in 205/75's up front and 235/75's out back. The
undercarriage is fully detailed and shows as well as the rest of the car.
Chrysler interiors of the 1960's were always stunning and this Coronet is
no exception. A dramatically long center console sitting on top of fresh
black carpet anchors the interior while the white seats on either side look
and feel new. The dash retains a stock look with the addition of Stewart
Warner oil, temperature and voltage gauges. Factory sliders control the
Classic Car Auto air conditioning system while a modern stereo is housed
inside the glove compartment.
With the fresh 440 Magnum, 4-speed transmission, detailed undercarriage,
and an awesome vintage interior, someone has invested a great deal of time
and money working this Coronet into its current condition. If you've always
wanted a big block B-body, you won't find a better example for the price.

1952 CHEVY 1/2 TON PICKUP TRUCK -- ADVANCE DESIGN CONTINUES
General Motors' first major redesign post-World War II, the Advance Design
series was billed as a bigger, stronger, and sleeker design. First
available on Saturday June 28, 1947, these trucks were sold with various
minor changes over the years until March 25, 1955, when the Task Force
Series trucks replaced the aging Advance Design model. From 1947 until
1955, Chevrolet trucks were number one in sales in the United States.
While GMC used this front end, and to a slightly lesser extent the cab, on
all of its trucks except for the Cab Overs, there are three main sizes of
this truck: the half-, three-quarter-, and full ton capacities in short and
long wheelbase. The differences of the '52 Chevy regarding previous years
are; Outer door handles are now push button type as opposed to the
previous turn down style. Speedometer now reads to 90 mph and dashboard
trim is painted instead of chrome. Mid-year, Chevrolet stops using the
3100-6400 designation on the hood and changes to maroon window and wiper
knobs. New serial number codes: KP ½ ton, KR ¾ ton, & KS 1 ton. This
Chevy truck has a great restoration preformed on it. However, I think that
wide white wall tires are an unrealistic add-on for most pickup trucks were
working trucks and would have had black wall tires installed for the
truck's entire life. The engine equipped for these Advance Design Series
trucks would be a Chevrolet straight-6cylinder engine with 216 cid. The
transmissions would either be a 3 speed or a 4 speed manual. I hope you
agree that this Chevy truck is a real jewel and as always thanks very much
for viewing this 1952 Chevy pickup.
