This 1938 Chevrolet pickup is the recipient of a multiyear effort to fully restore it and transform it into a restomod, with estimating the truck has traveled about 1,500 miles since its powertrain, built around a modern General Motors crate V-8, was fully rebuilt. The finish, and the cab interior, are both described as remaining in “excellent” condition. The Chevrolet is said to have also received a complete upgrade of its chassis components, centered around a Ford Mustang II-style independent front suspension. This pickup’s power comes from a modern GM 350-cu.in. OHV small-block crate V-8. The seller states that the engine is brand new and the GM Turbo Hydra-Matic three-speed automatic transmission has been fully rebuilt. Receipts accumulated during the restoration show that the engine receives its fuel mixture via FiTech fuel injection, which is fired by an MSD electronic ignition system. Tubular exhaust headers and various chromed accessories can also be seen. The seller reports no functional issues, no smoke, and no powertrain leaks. The engine bay presents as being strongly clean, per the provided photos. The Chevrolet’s paint is described as being in “good-to-excellent” condition overall, with touched-up chips listed as body blemishes. The cab seals are said to be in “excellent, leak-free” condition, according to the seller, who adds that the truck is free of rust. The cargo bed looks to be free of damage, with varnished wooden bed sides, flooring, and a matching wooden toolbox. The cab glass is reported to be in “excellent” condition, with all lighting said to be functional. The underside presents as being strongly clean, with no visible corrosion. The seating materials and other vinyl trim look to be in very good condition, with no visible tears or stains, and the carpeting shows no visibly worn areas or holes. The headliner appears to be in very good condition. The seller says the aftermarket instruments in the painted steel dashboard are functional, as is the audio system and the heater. A thick-rimmed banjo-type steering wheel is presents atop a tilt column.
