GM's Advance Design Series trucks were the company's first post-WW2 offering and billed as being 'bigger, stronger and sleeker'. Launched in 1947, they were sold with various minor changes until March 1955. This lightly customised example is finished in a notably eye-catching pale pastel shade of Turquoise and the interior is trimmed in Beige cloth. Its chassis number - 6JP114122 - relates to a 3100 model that was built at the Oakland, California plant during 1951. The Pickup bed features wooden stake sides and a wooden floor with stainless steel runners. The new front and rear bumpers are chromed steel, as per the original style, and the vehicle rides on Mohawk-shod painted steel rims adorned with large chrome hubcaps and beauty rings. This handsome and practical Pickup is powered by an original specification Stovebolt-6 214ci (3500cc), six-cylinder OHV engine allied to three-speed manual transmission and is being sold complete with brand new spare wheel and tyre. Rating the bodywork and paintwork as 'very good', the vendor considers the engine, gearbox and electrical equipment to be 'good' and the interior trim 'average'. A splendid-looking and apparently very usable truck that would make a welcome addition to any collection of Americana.
