Lot Details
1933 Chevrolet Series CB Half-Ton Pickup
Chassis no. 5CB0735251
Engine no. 836915
Chevrolet made major gains in the light truck market in the early 1930s. The new "Stovebolt" six-cylinder engine was particularly popular, as Ford offered only a four. Styling, which mimicked Chevy's passenger car lines, was also a big plus. Production of all series of trucks reached nearly 100,000 in 1933.

A time warp discovery, this unrestored 1933 Chevrolet is solid and generally straight, but for a few blemishes earned during its working life. The original green paint has nearly worn away, revealing the prime coat underneath, but there is very little surface rust, making restoration a straightforward task. It wears original 18-inch wire spoke wheels, painted yellow. Headlamps are correct bulb-and-reflector units, whose plating is somewhat tarnished but sound. The interior is similarly sound but unrestored. The seat is upholstered in gray cloth.

Most barn-find pickups today show evidence of a hard working life. Although this truck has obviously earned its living, it has not been loaded or driven to death. It is an excellent candidate for restoration, and will be a welcome show participant on a field typically filled with Fords.
