Six large doesn't buy much in the world of pre-war vehicles, maybe you can get a pile of parts or something you'd never want to drive...or so I thought. Imagine my surprise when I stumbled on this 1938 Chevrolet Truck 1.5 Ton offered for $6,000 in Meridian, OR via craigslist.
This car is described by the seller as a "Solid Rust Free Truck" and is powered by a 270 cubic inch GMC engine and 4-speed gearbox. It runs/drives and looks much better than you'd expect for the asking price, but there is some work needed on the brakes and lights.
