The introduction of the Chevrolet Advance Design commercial trucks in 1947 set in motion a postwar shift which saw the 1/2-ton pickup truck start to evolve from a work and utility vehicle to a popular choice for everyday motoring. The year 1950 brought wider bench seating with deeper cushioning, a fused circuit-breaker electrical system and an improved version of the Chevrolet Thriftmaster inline 6-cylinder engine with larger exhaust valves and Rochester Power-Jet carburetor. This restored and rebuilt Chevrolet 3100 series 5 window is an outstanding example of the half-ton light-duty commercial pickup that helped reshape the way America drove trucks. The faithfully restored 216 CI Thriftmaster six was rated for 92 HP at 3,400 RPM with a single 1-barrel Rochester carburetor and is backed by a 3-speed manual transmission with a steering-column-mounted shifter. The engine features the optional oil-bath air cleaner that could trap and hold up to 2 pounds of dirt. Inside the ventilated custom 5-window cab is a brown leatherette-upholstered bench seat for three-across comfort and factory-issued style. A heater helps keep the cab comfortable on chilly cruises. Telescopic shock absorbers replaced earlier lever-action units in 1950 for an improved ride. The restored cab and pickup were painted into a two-tone cream-over-green color scheme with red Chevrolet lettering and pinstriped accents. New wood for the box floor and side rails was varnished to a deep finish. The signature Advance Design 4-bar horizontal grille with integral running lights is chrome plated to shine with the front bumper and guards, fog and headlight light surrounds, outside mirrors and rear bumper. The restored icon of American history rides on body-color-painted steel wheels with new Chevrolet-logo hubcaps and trim rings equipped with new Firestone whitewall tires. A matching spare stands ready on a custom-fabricated side mount. -5-window cab -216 CI overhead valve Thrift Master engine -3-speed transmission -Straight body panels -Refinished in original style Light Green with Metallic Gray fenders and roof -Believed to be 28,000 miles -Varnished wood box floor and rails -New Firestone wide Whitewall tires -Hubcaps and trim rings -Chrome grille -Deluxe oil bath air cleaner -Heater -Front bumper guards -Fog lights -Outside mirrors -Custom side mount spare tire Feel free to contact us via email or phone with any questions Misar Motors LLC www.MisarMotors.com 4920 Fulton St E, Suite 5, Ada, MI 49301 By Appointment Only MisarMotors@gmail.com 616/600/1926 COVID-19 Safety Protocol: BY APPOINTMENT ONLY - For your safety we have implemented this safety protocol.
