Such an outstanding, well-built vintage truck! This 1933 Chevrolet Pickup offers a great balance, with its genuine antique appeal joining a whole host of modern upgrades and exhilarating power via the strong V8 under its hood to provide a great driving experience. It features a distinctive, well-applied finish and shows all the hallmarks of being well cared for, so it's looking clean both inside and out.
The flat black exterior is an eye-catching departure from the norm - it provides a subtle look of customization while still retaining the overall classic appearance and allows the exterior fittings - all of which are in very good shape - to really stand out. Get up close and you'll see that the fit and finish on display here is top notch. The doors are precisely aligned with the rest of the cab, the hood sits flush and there's clear glass on all sides of the cabin. Both the visor above the windshield and the pair of fog lights perched on the front bumper are stylistically accurate - back in the day, many Chevy trucks of this era hit the road with those visors in place and the additional lighting was often added in just this same manner. By the time this classic rolled off the assembly line, Chevy had taken the entire production of its pickups entirely in-house, turning out trucks that were both stylish and ready for duty right away and, from front to back, this specimen sure looks the part.
All the nostalgic magic outside comes at no sacrifice to a comfortable experience behind the wheel. The interior on this Chevy is well thought out and carries a number of great features. Everything inside the doors is looking very fresh - there's really no perceptible wear to be found. The cloth bench seat combines with a pair of padded backrests mounted to the rear wall of the cabin and a banjo-style Chevy steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column to arrive at the perfect driving position. There's some really nice craftsmanship evident as well - the assortment of fully functional Autometer gauges are surrounded by a well-prepped wooden dash face and the matching overhead console puts both interior lighting and the controls for the aftermarket stereo within easy reach. In back, a fuel cell provides modern-level safety as it sits concealed behind a wall matching the wood paneled bed.
This vintage Chevy was configured with a priority on exhilarating drivability. There's a nicely detailed 350 cubic inch V8 inside the compartment that wears matching matte-finished valve covers and air cleaner and it's running strong. The engine is equipped with an Edelbrock carb and intake, as well as an HEI ignition to maximize available spark, and exhales into a pair of aftermarket headers while pairing with a smooth-shifting automatic transmission. The featured Mustang II front clip offers not only a vastly improved ride, but also front disc brakes and rack and pinion steering to eliminate the excessive wheel play often found on aftermarket steering boxes. To further increase real-world reliability, Painless wiring has also been added. Rear traction bars help ensure that the power hits the pavement as it should as this well-equipped pickup turns heads on its set of painted steel wheels bearing Chevy-branded hubcaps and wrapped with BF Goodrich Control Plus tires. A look below will confirm just how sturdy the foundation on this '33 is.
With looks that transport you back to a simpler time and modern drivability that makes it a blast to drive, this 1933 Chevrolet Pickup is a truly rare find. Call today!
