1937 “Bumblebee” Chevy Pickup
1937 Chevy Pickup upgraded
The pre-war pickups represent a great buying opportunity, particularly those that have received safety and convenience upgrades. This 1937 Chevy pickup is just such a vehicle: sound bones with many upgrades.
This 1937 has been updated to increase its safety and reliability. It is equipped with:
- Front disc brake conversion
- Rack and Pinion front end kit
- New wheels and radial tires
- New dual exhaust system
- New radiator, water pump and hoses
- New gas tank
- Upgraded to 12-volt
- New Kobalt full-width tool chest
- Paint and Body
The yellow/black re-paint on this Chevy is bright and lively, with some lifting of paint on the hood. Overall, in quality it probably rates a 7.
The pickup bed appears to be a replacement.
The underside looks solid; there is evidence of floorboard repair.
The black cloth interior is clean and fresh-looking, as is the headliner..
All of the safety equipment (lights, wipers and horn) work properly. The driver’s door window glass is cracked.
The in-line six has plenty of power to move this ½-ton pickup as well as whatever you choose to put in the bed. For ease of starting the electrical system has been upgraded to 12-volts.
The truck has a floor-mounted 3-speed manual transmission.
The brakes have recently been converted to disc in front, drum in the rear.
- Safety and Convenience
All of the safety features (lights, signals, horn, wipers) on the Chevy work. The truck is equipped with seat belts for extra safety.
For ease (and security) of transport, a full-width, lockable Kobalt tool box has been mounted in the bed so you can take your valuables with you, be it tools or your picnic lunch!
A Solid Example of the Pre-war Chevy pickups
The most recent owner of this pickup invested in all of the upgrades that add to the safety and ease of driving (disc brake conversion, modern front end, new wheels/tires) and dependability (modern gauges, 12-volt conversion, new cooling system). Some touch-up to the paint and you’ll be ready for the cruise-ins and local shows.
