1954 Chevrolet Other Pickups

1954 Chevy Half Ton 3100 Series Pickup. Has thedSUPER RARE factory Hydra-matic 4 speedautomatic transmission. The Hydra-matic was first used by GM in the 1940 Oldsmobile and continued until the mid 60's in Cadillacs, buicks, some Pontiacs and even by other car makers such as Lincoln, nbsp;Hudson, packard, ambler and even Rolls Royce used this bullet proof transmission for some time. The military also used this transmission in heavy duty applications. Many a car race was won on drag strips in the 50's and 60's with the GM Hydra-matic transmission. Many GM old truck enthusiasts have never seen a Hydra-matic truck of this year due to the rarity. No one seems to know exactly how many 1954 Chevy trucks were equipped with this transmission, it is likely less than a few thousand on the high end were equipped in 1954 with this gearbox. Ford had introduced the Fordamatic automatic transmission in their light duty trucks in 1953, o to meet the competition and demand GM used a time tested transmission that had already been in service since 1940 in their car lineup to equip the 1954 GM trucks. The G.M.C. trucks were also equipped with the Hydra-matic, nbsp;including the heavier 3/4 ton and 1 ton trucks.

CAB:New tinted windshield and new rubber gasket. For many years GM used a large foot controlled starter button on the floorboard in all the manual transmission trucks. However, with the Hydra-matic transmission there was "no" starter button on the floorboard as were was with all the manual transmissions this year. The starter button was moved to the left side of dash and located above the headlight switch with all Hydra-matic trucks. Fuel tank will need to be flushed and cleaned however. There is NO heater available for this truck. Seat is complete with good strong springs. No cardboard door panels or headliner. No rubber mat for the floorboard.
BODY:New Chevrolet style hub caps and B.F. Goodrich tires that are new and have 99% tread.
MECHANICS:Has what "appears" to be the original stock 235 engine. Has the original carburetor with rare automatic choke ( which was used only with trucks having the automatic transmission ). Manual shifts had the standard choke cable to the dash. New 12 volt conversion has been done with new 1 wire alternator.

IN SUMMARY: Over the last 30 years I have been involved in several restorations of antique vehicles.

This truck certainly fits that category with obviously a huge savings of time and money in your restoration of this truck. THIS TRUCK IS A TRUE SURVIVOR. IT IS UNMOLESTED UNTOUCHED HARD TO FIND RUNNING DRIVING TRUCK.
