1950 Chevy 3100 Camper
From Cutcher :
I have had this 1950 Chevy 3100 for two years now. It was given to me by my Father who owned it at least 20 years or more. I believe I am the fifth owner. [ Pix from driver side ]
The truck has a cap installed. It was made by the Downey Sheet Metal Works in Downey, California. It is labeled as a Pullman Camper. It has a fold down picnic service on the back door.
The second owner used the truck as a hunting vehicle and traveled to Colorado and Alaska several times. There are scratches on the hood attributed to a bear placing both front paws on the hood on one of these hunting trips.
The truck was then sold to a member of my Father's Chevy club. That owner had the truck for many years before selling it to my Father.
The truck has only 57,000 miles on it. It's very clean and unrestored. It does appear the driver's door may have been repainted but the rest of the paint, as well as the interior, is exceptionally clean.
Since the top has been on the truck since 1951 or so, the bed wood is amazingly preserved and is still the original green body color. It has been covered with rugs / carpet and there is a short plywood bed with a mattress that spans the bed side to side that was the one owner's sleeping place during hunting trips.
I had to replace brakes and master cylinder when I received it. It was seldom used for several years and the wheel cylinders froze. I am now freshening up the gaskets and the seals to help with the oil spots on the floor. I'm trying to clean up the engine some, as it has a water stain / rust where the upper hose seeped for a while before being replaced.
There are not too many trucks this unmolested left around.
