1953 Chevrolet 6400 (Stovebolt 235)

A friend of a friend would like to get this old Chevy hauling again, needs a few things, but not as much as you might imagine. We knew almost nothing going into this. I looked up the old Stovebolt later that day and found out that the engine only displaces 235 cubic inches! I figured it was at least five liters or more... and according to the owner it tops out at around 55mph because the gearing is something in the sevens! (7.xx) We also get to drive a really cool Quadravan(?) Ford van with a C6 and 460. I'm assuming the running gear is sourced from a 70s F-series, but don't quote me on that.

1951 Chevy truck with stovebolt 235
This is my 1951 Chevy pick-up truck. It was purchased in 1953 by my Grandfather who used it as a ranch truck, occasionally driving it into town for supplies. He had the original 216 engine rebuilt later in his life when the truck's odometer was at about 92,000 miles. He put approximately 4,000 miles on the engine before parking the truck due to his declining health and inability to drive. I have many memories of riding in this truck as a young boy; in fact it was the first car I ever drove, though it was in a field at the time. After my Grandfather passed away, the truck sat for 22 years when my Dad got it running for me in June, 2007. Unfortunately the 216 overheated last summer and we replaced it with a 235. Driving this truck, which is a small piece of our family's history, reminds me of the days I used to work on the ranch with my Grandfather. I still have some of his belongings in the glove box. Hope you enjoy the video.

SOLD 1951 CHEVROLET 5 WINDOW PICKUP " SOLD " Drager's 206-533-9600
Been looking for an affordable 5 window maybe this is the one. Was restored over 20 years ago and has been garaged ever since. When we did the service and safety check we installed a new master cylinder, new 12 volt electric wiper motor. Its missing the right wiper arm. Installed new heater motor and switch so you have heat. New door latches on both doors. I drove it home from Old School Garage about 40 miles on the freeway and I will tell you its geared low. Patrick's Automotive (520) 836-1117 has a ring and pinion gear set that will make this 51 freeway driveable. The engine is the 216 inline six with 4 speed compound low transmission. Spilt Exhaust system just gives it a great sound. It has been converted to 12 volts so you can put any kind of sound system you want, as it does not have one now. Has a diamond pleat interior that looks good. The head liner ???? its glued in felt. Easy to get the original headliner kit and easy to install. Why didnt we do it? Keeping the price down... I spent over $1,600 to make it drive well. Has a great body, very solid. Chrome looks great but you can see some aging. I like these old farm trucks as you can see by my red 53 PU. Cond. # 3.
