Following the war, Chevrolet reintroduced its 1946 pickup to the civilian market. With all vehicle production at a standstill through the war era, civilian vehicle design was also drastically slowed, making the 1946 model very similar to its 1942 cousin. The vehicle had some subtle changes, such as the wheelbase length, improved fenders, and more model options, making the new truck somewhat more appealing at release. This truck stood for more though, it marked the beginning of sales to the everyday person. During the war vehicles were to be sold only to essential people, such as doctors, and first responders. So while the 1946 truck was a bit behind in design, it marked a very important step in the American automotive industry. This pickup has that same historical value matched with tremendous added luster. This bright orange beauty really stands out in the crowd. The older outside orange paint remains very presentable and is paralleled with an accompanying camel pinstripe and matching hand-painted Chevrolet markings. The crager chrome wheel, chrome duel side pipe exhaust, and wood slate bed, push this truck to a new level of appearance. Mechanically this truck boasts a well running straight inline 6 cylinder engine that shows 43,779 miles that exceed mechanical limits. The smooth power plant is connected to a converted 5 speed Mustang transmission for your pure enjoyment. Furthermore, behind the Mastercraft P225-70/R15 tires, you will find an ideal upgrade by way of power 4 wheel disk brakes. The gas tank has also been converted to the rear and out of its traditional place in the cab. Inside the cab you will find a complimenting camel interior which has recently been tastefully rebirthed. Overall, this is a great piece of post war history and a truck that will forever be deeply tied to a new age in American automotive glory. So whether you are looking for a superb weekend driver, a vehicle with a story, or a notable truck to take to the next car show, this truck has what you are looking for.
