In the 1950s, if you needed some heavy gear moved but didn't have space for a giant industrial-strength truck, machines like this 1950 Chevrolet 3600 was a smart choice. And now updated with a powerful 5.9-liter Cummins turbo diesel under the hood, this vintage workhorse is ready for some modern hauling.
This truck offers just the right combination of utility, beauty, and functionality. The high gloss on the orange and white two-tone is instantly appealing. We all love the look of a vintage five-window Chevy truck. Plus, this one has some great additional features like the sun visor and bright Pacer 10-bolt wheels. They're the kind of features that add charm and function without going overboard. You see this kind of appeal everywhere on this resorted pickup – from the Art Deco grille to the side-mounted full-size appeal. This dedication to keeping this polished workhorse looking so authentic pays off every time you take it to the car show and someone spots the bright 3600 badges on the hood and says, “I thought they only made these in 3100 series.” But those who know the difference will always respect the extra rarity of this workhorse.
Just like the exterior, the interior is upgraded without losing its period-correct charm. The bench seat, doors, dash, and carpeting are all part of a nicely coordinated package. But as you grab the wood rimmed three-spoke steering wheel you start to notice some upgrades that make this much nicer over the long haul. After all, the AM/FM stereo with aux input, power steering, and ice-cold R134a air conditioning are the kind of features we all want, even in a vintage ride.
The moment you see the engine compartment, you're reminded that this 3600 pickup is still ready to get to work. This classic heavy duty machine is now running a powerful 5.9-liter Cummins turbo diesel. These motors have been a popular and reliable industrial friend for decades. That means you've got good parts availability and plenty of torque to for towing. Backing up this useful classic is a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. And that feeds a stout Dana 60 rear end. It even already has the trailer hitch to make this coolest toy hauler you know.
You're looking at a rare and interesting 3600 Chevy with the power and poise to still be a workhorse. So if you're a lover of distinct classics, this is that perfect industrial-sized prize. Call now!
