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.
Whether you're racking up more trophies at shows or just spending a Saturday night out on the town, this 1950 Chevrolet 3100 is guaranteed to be the center of attention wherever you go. Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com for more information on this awesome truck!
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 Deluxe 2 dr - Frame Off Restoration - Original 235 Inline Six
I thought you'd like a look at this very clean 1950 Chevrolet 2-Dr Deluxe.
Under the hood is the nicely detailed original 235 CID inline 6 cylinder.
The engine is backed by a 3-Spd column shift manual transmission. This
vehicle went under a frame off restoration. The exterior is a beautiful
gloss black. The interior consists of grey cloth which is a factory
reproduction. The chrome on this Chevrolet looks is in great shape. On the
outside you will notice "new old stock" hub caps, bumper guard, hood
ornament upgrade, white wall tires, and a sun visor. This car runs as great
as it looks. Thanks for taking a look!

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.

Steering is the term applied to the collection of components, linkages,
etc. which will allow a vessel (ship, boat) or vehicle (car, motorcycle,
bicycle) to follow the desired course. An exception is the case of rail
transport by which rail tracks combined together with railroad switches
(and also known as 'points' in British English) provide the steering
The most conventional steering arrangement is to turn the front wheels
using a hand--operated steering wheel which is positioned in front of the
driver, via the steering column, which may contain universal joints (which
may also be part of the collapsible steering column design), to allow it to
deviate somewhat from a straight line. Other arrangements are sometimes
found on different types of vehicles, for example, a tiller or rear--wheel
steering. Tracked vehicles such as bulldozers and tanks usually employ
differential steering — that is, the tracks are made to move at different
speeds or even in opposite directions, using clutches and brakes, to bring
about a change of course or direction.
Wheeled vehicle steering
The basic aim of steering is to ensure that the wheels are pointing in the
desired directions. This is typically achieved by a series of linkages,
rods, pivots and gears. One of the fundamental concepts is that of caster
angle - each wheel is steered with a pivot point ahead of the wheel; this
makes the steering tend to be self-centering towards the direction of
The steering linkages connecting the steering box and the wheels usually
conforms to a variation of Ackermann steering geometry, to account for the
fact that in a turn, the inner wheel is actually travelling a path of
smaller radius than the outer wheel, so that the degree of toe suitable for
driving in a straight path is not suitable for turns. The angle the wheels
make with the vertical plane also influences steering dynamics (see camber
angle) as do the tires.
Rack and pinion, recirculating ball, worm and sector
Many modern cars use rack and pinion steering mechanisms, where the
steering wheel turns the pinion gear; the pinion moves the rack, which is a
linear gear that meshes with the pinion, converting circular motion into
linear motion along the transverse axis of the car (side to side motion).
This motion applies steering torque to the swivel pin ball joints that
replaced previously used kingpins of the stub axle of the steered wheels
via tie rods and a short lever arm called the steering arm.
The rack and pinion design has the advantages of a large degree of feedback
and direct steering "feel". A disadvantage is that it is not adjustable, so
that when it does wear and develop lash, the only cure is replacement.
Older designs often use the recirculating ball mechanism, which is still
found on trucks and utility vehicles. This is a variation on the older worm
and sector design; the steering column turns a large screw (the "worm
gear") which meshes with a sector of a gear, causing it to rotate about its
axis as the worm gear is turned; an arm attached to the axis of the sector
moves the Pitman arm, which is connected to the steering linkage and thus
steers the wheels. The recirculating ball version of this apparatus reduces
the considerable friction by placing large ball bearings between the teeth
of the worm and those of the screw; at either end of the apparatus the
balls exit from between the two pieces into a channel internal to the box
which connects them with the other end of the apparatus, thus they are
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.

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.

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.

Assembled at Chrysler's Hamtramck, Michigan manufacturing facility on
November 9th of 1969 and delivered to Holiday Chrysler-Plymouth in Austin,
Minnesota, this spectacular Hemi Cuda is the beneficiary of a frame-off,
reference grade restoration which was conducted by well-known Mopar guru
Roger Gibson. That restoration, which took roughly three years to complete,
utilized many NOS parts to return the car back to a 100% showroom fresh
state; and in fact, its details are so accurate that it was featured, along
with Roger Gibson's concours level work, in a three part Mopar Muscle tech
article which is included with the sale.
Under the green shaker hood, Roger Gibson's work was carried out to the
highest standards using correct factory build techniques, date coded
components and the car's original 426 cubic inch Hemi V8. As Chrysler's top
option for power hungry gearheads, this legendary elephant block, which is
complete with its famous 2468330 casting number, a correct May 19th of 1969

Suppression wires which are snapped onto a correct dual point distributor.
And resultant combustion is cooled by a correct 26 inch heavy duty radiator
which comes complete with fresh reproduction hoses, correct clamps and a
correct fan shroud.
The high powered big block churns torque through the car's original A727
TorqueFlite 3-speed automatic transmission which is branded with a correct
E-body code, a matching 186483 partial VIN and an October 9th of 1969 build
date. At the front of the car a factory accurate torsion bar suspension,
which is complete with a thick sway bar, specially tuned shocks and correct
Cosmoline coated control arms, helps increase drivability and lap times.
And at the back of the car an 8.75 inch rear axle, which is stuffed with
stout 3.55 gears, utilizes rebuilt leaf springs, a second pair of specially
tuned shocks and a Sure Grip differential to ensure drama free launches.
Braking is handled by heavy duty manual drums at all four corners. Steering
feels firm and responsive thanks to a factory correct manual rack. Spent
gases are whisked away by an aluminized true dual Exhaust system which features an H-pipe
crossover, correct resonators and correct factory replacement mufflers. And
all this first rate hardware proudly stands on a set of 15 inch
body-matched steel wheels that wrap new F60-15 Goodyear Polyglas GT tires
around pristine Plymouth centerpieces.
Swing open this Cuda's solid closing doors and you'll find a well-executed,
fully restored green vinyl interior which is simple, functional and looks
as good as new. The front bucket and rear bench seats are showroom fresh
and display no signs of wear at all. The optional console houses a correct

contoured design that never goes out of style. The fresh green dash
features a correct optional Music Master AM radio and a fully rebuilt
Rallye instrument cluster which includes both a tachometer and a continuous
motion electric clock. In front of the driver, an attractive wood rimmed
steering wheel provides both form and function. And behind the cockpit, a

1949 Chevy 5 Window PU " SOLD " Drager's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
Beautiful is the best way to describe this pickup. The black paint is very
nice and the chrome is excellent. Add the wide white tires and this truck
just jumps at you. The black bed with the chrome bars looks great. I like
the way the dash is painted. Another thing, it runs and drives like it
looks. Now has a 235 engine. 4 on the floor transmission. 12 volt. Turn
signals. Seat belts. AM/FM Autosound with 10 CD player in the glove box.
Interiors very nice. Has the Chevy heater defroster. Step plates on the
running boards. The underside is clean. There are minor flaws in the paint
but you will have to look very hard. This is a good truck. Originally owned
by a farmer in Minnesota. After a partial restoration by the second owner
in Minnesota the PU was sold and brought to Washington state by the 3rd
owner that continued the restoration. Last year it was up for sale and I
missed it. Then this year the new owner wanted to sell it. I bought it. I
had already bought the '37 Ford from him in like 1997 that I have back for
sale right now. I also bought a '41 Ford PU from him. So when you buy this
PU from me and you don't count me as an owner you will be the 6th owner.
Neat history that you very seldom get. All serviced and safety checked and
ready to drive. Cond # 2-.
