If you like vintage trucks, then Connors Motorcar of West Chester, Pennsylvania has something very special for you. Not only is this 1939 Chevrolet half-ton truck fresh off a restoration (100 miles fresh!), it's also been subtly modified to make it a true street rod. Judging by the looks, though, most people would never know this vintage pickup truck hides modern underpinnings.
Aside from a slightly lowered stance, it's almost impossible to tell that this 1939 Chevrolet half-ton is a mild street rod. That's because this truck's body is exactly how it looked when it was new 80 years ago. The massive, tear-dropped shaped fenders and wide running boards are painted black as a stark contrast to the rest of the truck's Tahitian Yellow paint, while the fold-out windshield, chrome grille and steel wheels with chrome hubcaps finish off the vintage looks. To see the best part of this truck, take a peek inside the bed where you'll find dark-stained wood and more bright yellow paint.
The cargo area is also where you'll probably get the first clue that this truck is hiding a street rod underneath with the fuel cell's filler neck positioned in the middle of the bed. While this '39 Chevy retains a factory look, numerous upgrades and improvements under the skin make this truck more enjoyable for cruising including a front-end swap (independent front suspension with rack and pinion steering and disc brakes) and a V8 engine under the hood. This 350 CID V8 is said to produce an impressive 300 horsepower, and it is backed by an automatic transmission with overdrive.
The modern front-end and drivetrain should make this truck a perfect cruiser as should the interior with the modern bucket seats and updated vintage-style gauges. After all, what's the fun of a street rod if you can't take it cruising?
With just 105 miles on the recent frame-off restoration, this truck has many miles of cruising in its future. Connors Motorcar has this beautiful truck listed for $29,500. If you're interested, click HERE to make an offer.
