1946 Chevrolet Other Pickups 1946 CHEVY PICKUP TRUCK FRAME OFF RESTORATION RARE
Welcome back, friends, and Happy Holidays! These sales include dozens of high quality collector vehicles, along with high-end Americana collectibles. Please take a peek at our feedback, the positive comments written by buyers of high ticket cars & collectibles, and don't hesitate to reach out for references. No stone was left unturned with this restoration, and please take time to view the photos and videos of this beautiful piece of American history. Be advised, you WILL be frequently stopped by folks with questions and positive comments about this truck. It's stunning, just absolutely stunning. Built in Janesville, we suspect the'46 has been in central Wisconsin most, or all of its life. Over the next year or so, the truck was completely taken off the frame and a comprehensive restoration was performed. Beyond the beautiful paint, notice the attention to detail with this restoration: wiring is new, brake lines and hoses have been replaced, turn signals added, BF Goodrich Silvertown wide whitewalls installed on beautifully restored wheels, and all chrome & brightwork replated or polished. Painted in a combination of Swift Red and Black, the body is straight, and the base/clear absolutely glows in the sun and under indoor light. The glass and trim is also in excellent condition, and care was obviously taken throughout the restoration. With that said, please look at the exterior photos for shots of some areas where a bit of bubbling has started, a spot on the front lower valence that has a small dent, as well as areas where light scuffs or scratches have occurred. Inside, the dash, door panels, and other painted surfaces were treated to the same restoration as the exterior. In a nod to his personality, Mike added a bit of flair with the plush seat cover that kisses your behind each time you drive. The engine compartment includes additional details like a correct radiator hose, all new electrical harnesses and junction boxes, and even a nicely detailed Carter carburetor. You'll be proud to open the hood at local shows and cruise-ins. The bed continues with the high quality restoration theme, and features a new oak floor, with polished spacers in between. No stone was left unturned.. After finishing his dream truck, Mike enjoyed showing it at local events, and taking evening cruises through the hills of central Wisconsin. The odometer was set back to 0 after the restoration.
Sadly, after a few years of enjoyment, and about 800 miles, Mike passed earlier in 2021. The heir is a close friend of ours, who entrusted us with finding a new caretaker for Mike's'46 Chevy.
This piece of American history features a 216 cubic inch, inline 6 engine, along with a 3 speed manual transmission. Please see the videos of the cold start of this truck, as well as the drive around town we did. The'46 runs well, shifts properly, and feels stable down the road. It's FUN TO DRIVE! However, this probably isn't a truck you want to take to work every day. It's 75 years old folks, and technology has come a long way since then. You can't stop in this truck like you would with your 2019 Silverado.
The truck's VIN is 21DPH5291, which breaks down as follows. The 216 cubic inch inline 6 has a stamping of DBA203271.
DBA is a regular production 216 engine for 1946, so we suspect this is the born-with engine for this truck. The transmission casting number is 591195, which again shows as a correct 3 speed transmission for this truck. No serial number stamping could be found on the transmission, so we were unable to break down its information further. As far as features, the only things we noticed not currently working on this truck are the directionals and the horn.
The taillights work, so maybe there is a flasher in need of replacement somewhere. Mike's passing came as a shock, and several family members were involved in settling his estate. Much of the work is obvious, but details like an engine or transmission rebuild have to looked at further. Although we cannot guarantee rebuilds, it's apparent that the engine has been re-gasketed, has new freeze plugs, and has had all new gauge sensors installed into the block. With the level of detailed restoration performed throughout the truck, we feel comfortable believing the engine has been rebuilt.
We feel similarly about the transmission. The clutch feels great and holds well, and the truck shifts smoothly. Our friend who inherited the'46 from Mike is searching for a caretaker who will love this truck like Mike did. However, dont hesitate to call me with a specific question.
Cash or cleared wire transfer will allow the car to be released the same day. If you haven't owned a classic car, please remember that this isn't a 2019 Toyota Rav4. Older cars, even those with low miles, require an increased level of maintenance and attention. We assume no responsibility for damages incurred after the vehicle leaves our possession.
