A very rare true barn find, a 1935 Chevrolet pickup. An unmolested, all original body truck found stored away inside an Iowa barn for 60 years! Because the body is so solid, with only light surface rust in places, my plan was to leave it with its great natural patina. The original 207 ci motor had been replaced with a 235 ci motor from 1957. The engine head has already been rebuilt at a NAPA AUTO machine shop, including being hot-tanked to clean it all out; magnafluxing to check for any cracks; and hardened valve seats installed; ($700.). The truck has 5 new Coker tires, inner tubes, and liners, that are mounted and balanced on the original wire spoke wheels that have been sandblasted and powder coated satin black, ($1,500.) The original radiator has been completely recored, ($700.) Several thousand more dollars have been invested in just about every part that is available, just to be sure that i had all of the needed parts when reassembling it. I have most, if not all of those receipts. Some of those new parts include: A new grille; a better than new OEM quality full body wire harness; new stainless headlight reflectors; new muffler; new water pump; new gas tank w/ tank gauge, tank hanging straps, filler neck, gasket, cap; service manual; owners manual, plus, many, many more boxes of new parts. Also, an upgrade to 12 volt, so there is a new alternator and wire kit to add it to the new original wire harness, and 12 volt headlight bulbs. The truck comes with an extra manual transmission, and 2 used rear bumpers. The top of the truck cab received a gash from when they were trying to remove it from the barn. The only rust holes in this truck are in the running-boards, one hole on each side, directly above the running-board support, (I bought 2 new running-board replacement supports for that, along with a good used original running-board patch panel, to fix those 2 rust holes). You are buying a complete truck here, no missing parts. Only the hood, headlight assembly, and grille assembly have been removed to allow for removing the engine and transmission. The 4 photos of the truck on a trailer, and the pic of it on the floor, shows how it currently looks, with its new tires installed. To me, it is at the point of reassembly, not much to reassemble the parts that i had removed from the body. It rolls easily. I’m 67, and realize that i need to let go of one of my projects. A clean title in my name. $14,000. No tire kickers, or trades, just cash please.
I’ve included an interesting article telling of the rarity of the 1935 Chevrolet pickups, from the archives of Jim Carter Antique Truck Parts, (see the last two photos).
