As the title indicates, a complete 1952 Chevrolet 3800 truck with owner added grain box for sale, asking $1,000. Located in Roseau County, Minnesota.

More pictures:

As best I know the history of this vehicle: it has spent its life on one farm and was used to haul grain and seed between the farm and grain elevators. Odometer indicates 27,XXX miles. I have no reason to doubt that is accurate. It has been parked in a lean-to next to a barn for ~38 years. It was taken out for the first time in July and given a light rinsing. Last licensed in 1982.

Overall condition appears to be very good considering it’s age and location. The worst damage appears to be the crease in the roof of the cab. Based on the amount of rust underneath it’s unlikely it was driven during the winter very much. Overall this vehicle is quite clean and as best I can tell very few, if any, parts are missing.

Options: Unfortunately there were very few options ordered on this truck. It has the 4 speed transmission and that is about it for mechanical options. Not sure of the engine size. NOT a five-window cab nor does it have a 2-speed rear-end.

Obviously, vehicle does not run but tires hold enough air to roll it around. Currently parked so it can be loaded onto a trailer or flatbed from either end.

I’m happy to answer any questions you may have about the truck. If you want to see it in person I’ll have to pass you on to a family member who lives nearby.

Nice truck
It has these options I can see in photos:
delux heater, hydro vac brake booster, heavy duty auxiliary spring, dual rear wheels

The air cleaner is a bit small, maybe not the original one?

2Many - Thanks for letting me know the other options! It always amazes me what other people know in their area of expertise.

Should note for anyone who is slightly interested, $1,000 is the starting point. Price is very negotiable.
