This 1929 Chevy Pickup has been restored into a very nice original condition, if not 100% original then very close to it. 1929 was the year Chevy replaced the 4 cylinder engine in their trucks with the 194 cub inch Stovebolt 6, which would have added considerably more power in comparison. Reports are that a 1929 Chevy Pickup onwards into the 30’s will cruise quite happily at 45 to 50 miles per hour. Stopping it in a hurry might be interesting though. In 1932 Chevy replaced the updraft carburetor with a down-draught type, and along with other improvements in 1934 this further increased the horsepower.
Below the main video there are two more short ones on a 1930 all original unrestored Chevy Pickup, and a 1934 1 1/2 ton Chevy truck.
The firstChevy Pickup was released to the public in 1918, and have continued ever since. Like Chevy cars the models today bear no resemblance to their predecessors, except perhaps they still have a deck, are still designed to be able to carry a loadbut in today’s world have the same or even better comfort one would expect from a good car.
I noted this 1929 Chevy Pickup was for sale at the time the video was made in 2015, the price being shown as $18,750. Compare it here to a 2015 model. I was interested in the rear tires, they didn’t seem to have done that many miles and had I guess you would call it a mud grip tread. Looking at the cracking these could be quite old?

Almost 80 years old, preserved and ready for the next 80 I hope.
Thank you to Ramblin Around for this film. Photos are screen shots from the video.
