Vehicle Story

This 1954 Chevrolet 3100 pickup truck was a forestry truck in Washington and Appleton, Oregon before it received some reconditioning and is powered by a 235ci inline-6 paired with a 4-speed manual transmission. The previous owner installed new parts, including tires and fuel tank. Under current ownership for approximately six months, the seller has added about 300 of the truck’s 35,531 miles. Equipment includes vent windows, chrome hubcaps, a side-mounted full-size spare tire, and attached Forestry tools. This Chevrolet pickup is now offered with a clear Kentucky title in the seller’s name.

Finished in turquoise green said to be new paint, the truck features a color-matched grille, chrome headlight bezels, chrome 3100 badges on the hood sides, wooden stake sides mounted on the bed, and running boards, bumpers, and a driver-side rearview mirror that have been repainted black. The doors have US Forestry Service graphics displayed on them. The passenger side of the bed has a full-size spare tire attached to it.

Turquoise wheels feature chrome hubcaps with bowties on them and are wrapped in new blackwall tires said to be installed by a previous owner. The Forestry theme continues on the driver's side and bed. A fire extinguisher and red canister are mounted on the driver-side running board behind the door, and a saw, pickax, and shovel are mounted in the bed of the truck. The seller reports the wood in the bed may need to be replaced in the future.

The interior is outfitted in beige and black and includes manually operated windows and vent windows. The beige dashboard features Chevrolet lettering at the top while the door panels are beige with black paneling at the tops.

Behind the 3-spoke black steering wheel with a bowtie emblem at the center are a speedometer and tachometer. The odometer shows 5,531 miles, but the seller reports mileage as 35,531, 300 of which were added by the seller.

 

The engine system has received service work and new parts recently. The 235ci inline-6 is paired with a 4-speed manual transmission and is linked to a working 6-volt electrical system. Recent service work includes a changing of the radiator fluid and an oil change under previous ownership. The truck has also received a new gas tank.

@garygrimnes – Don't see any pictures of the frame and undercarriage. Curious about possible presence of rust and condition of the brake system. Is the truck in safe reliable driving condition? ...

I have had the vehicle in the air after I purchased it. Surprisingly no rust. The vehicle I was told was reconditioned. Looks very good under neath. I can see where items have been taken care of . The vehicle is very safe. The first thing I checked was brake lines. All looked good. There are no active leaks

Serial number does not seem to meet the 53-55 scheme. Can you explain?
