Things You'll Need
- Car Value Guide
Consider an Art Deco truck for one of the more distinctive-looking Chevy trucks. These trucks were built from 1941 to 1946 and have a beautiful front grill.
Look for a '50s era truck for the truck favored by many hot-rodders. The '55 to '57 trucks tend to be the most sought-after.
Find a '60s era truck for those with a muscular, clean look. These trucks are divided into two distinct periods. The 1960 to 1966 trucks were a complete redesign from the '50s trucks. The 1967 to 1972 trucks are a more evolutionary design with a simpler look.
Consider a 1973 or newer truck for a more modern model.
Tips & Warnings
- These are pretty simple vehicles. Your main enemy will be rust, but there are plenty of parts available.
- Many of the trucks have been worked hard or have been heavily modified. If you are patient, you should be able to find a well-maintained truck being sold by the original owner. Take your time and have fun with it.
