1952 Chevrolet 3100 Deluxe Cab - $32,500

Rare 5-Window pickup truck. Originally from Kentucky, this Chevy 3100 short bed retains a stock original look inside and out, but under the hood the truck has a resto-mod upgrade to a modern small black V8 motor, with a Mustang II front end and electric wipers and power steering. The gas tank is new and was moved from its original dangerous position behind the driver seat to the rear of the truck. Ice-cold AC has been installed. Newer radial tires were put on about four years ago with less than 1000 miles. The truck was resprayed green about 10 years ago, with new rubbers and glass installed. As background on the 5-window design: After WWII, Chevy introduced a new line of trucks with what they called "Advanced Design trucks, Chevy placed an emphasis on cab comfort and safety. "For the 1947 to 1954 models, stylists conceived the five-window cab, formally known as the Deluxe Cab, to eliminate the blind spots in the rear quarter panels of the cab. This allowed the driver to look over his shoulder to view the rear instead of poking his head out the window. Chevrolet recognized that its trucks had to be more than workhorses, but also comfortable vehicles to drive. The automaker also recognized that the truck was no longer just a farm truck, but also driven as suburban transportation, with a greater number of women getting behind the wheel. Chevrolet marketed the truck with a new postwar approach. Chevy expanded the glass area of the 1947 models by 22 percent over the prewar designs. It also developed a new safety-glass technology. For the five-window Deluxe Cab models, Chevy marketed the feature as "Nu-Vue Rear-Corner Windows." These rear quarter-panel windows curved with the contour of the cab to eliminate the blind spot. Stylists finished all the windows with stainless steel trim."
