1954 Chevy 3600 ¾ Ton Pickup, 5 Window.This is survivor pickup that, as far as I can tell, has been in continuous use in one way or another for its entire life. The history I learned from the previous owners is that it was originally purchased by McEvoy Oil in Bellingham, WA and was used for deliveries. This is when the diamond plate bed liner was installed and the tailgate was reinforced with square tubing so that oil barrels would not destroy the bed. Next it was owned by Buck’s Texaco station in Bellingham and used as a shop truck for many years (you cans still see a slight outline of the Texaco logo on the driver’s door), eventually moving to semi-retirement as the truck that Buck used to haul his boat. After this it was sold to a local lawyer, who was going to restore it, but sold it to me instead. I’ve owned the truck since 1996, when I bought it to use as a work truck. After moving to a desk job around 2001, it served light duty doing dump runs, trips to the lumber yard, helping friends move, and weekend cruising around.I am selling the truck because it really needs to go to a new home where someone has the time, money and energy to keep it going, restore it, or hot rod it. It runs and drives strong, but would need some work to be a reliable and safe daily driver. The steering is loose, the shocks are shot, the brakes are decent, but should probably be checked out, the wheels are non-stock off of a later model Chevy, and the tires are at least 20 years old. The electrical system is original 6V and the truck has aftermarket turn signals. The 4-speed transmission shifts well, but has a noticeable rattle under heavy load like it needs a bearing or two. The engine is a 235cc inline 6 like the original, but has hydraulic lifters, so it is probably out of a mid-50’s car. It runs well and was claimed to be fully rebuilt when I bought it off a guy in around ’98 or so. The exhaust is cobbled together from random parts.The pictures do a good job of showing the condition of the body and paint, probably best described as a “nice patina”. The truck was originally red (see the firewall) but on top of that are various layers of house paint, primer, and rattle-can. The body is pretty straight with no collision damage that I know about, but there is surface rust all around the bed, and in some areas of the cab. The grill is in good shape, with only a small dent in the center column. There are some rust holes in the front of the cab floor on both sides where the rocker panels connect to the cab floor (with patch panels screwed over them) and in the back corners of the cab below the seat, I tried to show these areas in the pictures. Unfortunately the “3600” emblems were stolen off the sides of the hood.
