1937 Chevrolet Pickup Is A Handsome Vintage Truck With An Attractive $20k Price1
A mint-condition 1937 Chevrolet pickup truck was recently listed for sale by Denver, Colorado-based dealership Worldwide Vintage Autos for a very approachable $19,900.
This no-frills work truck is a great example of the 1930s Chevrolet pickup. It appears to have been restored at some point in time, but the listing does not provide any indication as to when this work was carried out or how extensive it was. However, we do know it recently received a fresh coat of two-tone black and yellow paint, and we’re willing to bet the exterior chrome trim was reinvigorated around this time as well, based on the condition it’s in. This truck also features the optional pop-open safari windshield that was offered on Chevrolet’s pickup at the time.
Other notable options and features here are the ‘Artillery’ style steel wheels wrapped in newer Kelly Safari AWR wheels, a Rhino bed liner, a custom dual exhaust and a full-size spare tire. This truck also seems to have some sort of home-built metal front and rear bumpers in place of the original thin metal bumpers that it left the factory with in the late 1930s. They look a bit weird, in our opinion, but finding a pair of more period-correct looking bumpers on eBay or elsewhere online would probably be easy and relatively inexpensive.
Power here comes from Chevy’s venerable Stovebolt inline-six engine. The engine in this car is the original that it left the factory with in 1937, adding to the truck’s desirability. Paired with the engine is a four-speed manual transmission, which was only available in the half-ton pickup version of the Chevrolet Master series line of vehicles in 1937. Coupes and sedans, by comparison, had a three-speed manual.
Think this 1937 Chevrolet pickup is worth the $20,000 asking price? Check out the listing at this link for some more information and photos.

I was wondering where they split the exhaust to make it dual. The Chevy inline 6’s I’m familiar with are single and split somewhere under the vehicle. However in looking at the close up of the motor it appears that there are two exhaust ports coming right off that manifold. I’m not familiar with this engine at all but it seems Chevy was looking for horsepower improvements then as well. Was that the reason for this design?
