General Motors' Advance Design Series of trucks, represented the company's first post-war reshape and were claimed to be bigger, stronger and sleeker than the AK model they replaced. The newcomers quickly acquired a loyal following and were produced with only minor amendments from 1947 to 1955, during which period the Chevrolet brand topped the American truck sales charts. The left-hand drive sale vehicle has recently been brought to these shores from the dry state of California where its long term private keeper of some 10 years treated '734 UYO' to a re-paint and interior re-trim. Power comes from a 3.8-litre (231ci) petrol engine coupled to a three -speed manual gearbox and the pickup features a side mounted spare wheel with White wall tyres which are said to be all in 'good' order and has recently been treated to a new battery, starter motor, clutch kit, handbrake cables and oil change. Offered with V5C and MOT exempt if you drive a modern box and long for something more interesting - then this could be for you?!
