This 1950 Chevrolet Series 3600 3/4-ton pickup has been with the seller for 18 years and was the recipient of a five-year frame-up restoration completed in 2007. Power is provided by a rebuilt 235ci inline-6 paired to a 4-speed manual transmission, and features include a 12-volt electrical system, new leather upholstery, new gauges, Vintage air conditioning. This Forrester Green 3600 has traveled approximately 1k miles since the restoration was completed and is now offered with a clear Arizona title in the seller’s name.
Replacement doors with wing windows from a 1952 model were added prior to respraying the body in its original Forrester Green finish, and features include a chrome grille, bumpers, and trim, as well as a refinished wood plank bed. The seller's father-in-law worked in conjunction with various Arizona shops over the course of five years to complete the restoration.
Body-matching 16" steel wheels are fitted with chrome caps and wrapped in Firestone Steeltex Radial A/T tires. Deceleration and handling are managed by drum brakes on all four corners and manual steering.
The interior is trimmed in red and taupe vinyl. Vintage air conditioning has been installed.
All electrical has been converted to a modern 12-volt system, which powers a new set of gauges.
The original engine was replaced with a freshly rebuilt 235ci inline-6 mated to a 4-speed manual transmission during the restoration. Roughly 1000 miles have been driven since the swap was completed. The seller notes the engine may be slow to turn over in cool weather.
