1952 Chevrolet Pickup Short Bed (TN) - $16,850
Exterior Color: Yellow
HOW IS THE BODY? I consider it very good and solid. I see no rust bubbles in the paint, no holes on the under side, the frame looks very good. I do see some rusty color metal on the underside and one brace with a very minor rusty edges. To me it looks like all the body panels are original, including the floors. One area on the flat floor may have had a small patch.
WHAT IS THE HISTORY? I bought the truck from a man from Kingsport, Tennessee. He was at a car show in the Smokey Mountains last week. He was tiered of the truck and was having problems with the carburetor and not starting good. Battery was new, but one of the cables was too small and the carburetor spray pump was not working. I fixed both of those problems the first day. The speedometer reads way too slow, so I have a new head ordered. The gas gauge would not read correct and would jump sometimes, I have a new tank sending unit ordered.
HOW IS THE TITLE? I have a clear Tennessee title in hand, it does state that last to times of registration was Tennessee.
HOW IS THE YELLOW PAINT? I consider it upper end driver quality! The body is straight when I look down the sides. I see no dents or dings, I do see several touched up chips. The shine is very good and the paint is slick.
HOW IS THE INTERIOR? Good interior, seat cover is a dark gray with no wear or holes, head liner good with minor waves, rubber mat OK, but not new.
HOW IS THE ENGINE? Its a sweet running in-line over head valve 6 cylinder. I hear no knocks or rattles and it has good power. A aluminum heavy duty radiator has been added.
HOW IS THE TRANSMISSION? It a good shifting 3 speed manual, 3 on the tree.
HEAD LIGHTS WORK! TAIL LIGHTS WORK! BRAKE LIGHTS WORK! HORN NOT WORKING! NO TURN SIGNALS, THEY WERE A OPTION THIS YEAR! OIL GUAGE WORKS! TEMP GUAGE WORKS! SPEEDOMETER WORKS!
HOW IS THE GLASS? It looks like it all has been replaced, its clear and good.
HOW IS THE CHROME? Bumpers look new. Door handles shine good, but have some pits.
HOW ARE THE TIRES? Very good tires with wide white porta walls.
HOW DOES THE TRUCK DRIVE? Good for 1952.
HOW ARE THE BRAKES? 4 wheel drums, that stop real good to my standards.
HOW IS THE BED WOOD? Decent condition, a little drying, look at the pictures.
