1931 Chevrolet 1/2 Ton Pickup news, pictures, and information
|Chassis Num: 21AE60237|
|Sold for $18,700 at 2007 RM Auctions.|
Chevrolet was absorbed into the GM family in 1918, the same year Chevrolet began producing trucks. Within fifteen years time, nearly one million examples were produced. The six-cylinder engine was added in 1929 allowing for even great load capacities and greater versatility. In 1931, Chevrolet introduced the Independence Series featuring the first 1/2-ton Light Delivery Line.
Large hood louvers located on the side of the hood allowed for air to freely flow into the engine. The two-piece front bumper was optional equipment, and offered for only a short time before being replaced with a single-piece design.
There was interest in this vehicle on auction day, though not enough to satisfy the estimated value. Since there was no reserve, the vehicle was sold for a bargain price of $18,700.
