1946 Chevy 6100 series dump truck for parts only. Frame is good, complete 2-speed rear end with all associated hardware. Front axle looks good. Dump box and hoist are restorable. Cab is junk, front sheet metal is missing, engine is seized. Located in southwest corner of Massachusetts. Asking $200, will consider offers.

I can take a few over the weekend and send them to you. The box has some holes in the floor, the tailgate is missing and the release handle is frozen. it's 8 feet long, 6 feet wide about a foot and a half deep. I don't have an account that would let me share the photos here. If you send me a private message with your e-mail, I can send them there.

Hi Jeffery,
I wouldn't recommend it. The license plate on it is from 1964 so it's been a over 50 years since this thing has seen road speed and the tires are flat. Being a short wheelbase, it will fit on most trailers. I bought it for the 2-speed axle, but need to move and don't have the time to do the swap to my driver.

Ed, what is the overall length of the truck, the wheel base length, and how much does the truck weigh?

Jeffery, I got the following from the old car manual project:
Wheel base is 134"
Overall length 208" +/-
Outer rear wheel tread width 80" +/- (center line of tires)
Curb weight of the cab and chassis is listed at 4475 pounds. With a stake side body, it's listed at 5230.

Add the hoist, subtract the missing sheetmetal and I would guess that it's somewhere in the neighborhood of 6,000 pounds, give or take a few hundred. I have never weighed it, so this is my best guess. Where it sits right now is where I unloaded it from the trailer I hauled it home on.
I hope that helps,
Ed
