Collectible Motorcar of Atlanta is proud to offer this piece of automotive history, a 1934 Chevrolet DB Pickup Truck. When purchased new that year, it had a price tag of $464.50. The price included two options: a heater, and the wire wheels which are still the wheels on the truck. It's powered by an in-line, six cylinder overhead valve gasoline engine with a single-barrel downdraft carburetor - the famous Chevy 'Stove-Bolt Six". Engine displacement was 200.6 cubic inches and when new it could crank out 60.5 horsepower. Final gear ratio in the rear end was 4.56:1. The truck had a top speed of 58 miles per hour. The original purchaser and owner had started a 50 acre farm at the very bottom of the Great Depression near a place called Lewis, Oklahoma. Lewis was 120 miles from the town where the dealership was located. The truck was used over its lifetime to pull stomps, carry hay, tend to family needs and carry produce to market. Once purchased it never returned to a dealership. If repairs or maintenance were needed, the farmer and his son and grandson would push the truck into their barn and order parts and supplies by mail-order. They maintained and repaired the truck by themselves on site. The truck was used on a constant basis as a work vehicle straight through the Depression, World War IL, and the Korean War - up and on into the 1960's. You are looking at a shining example of how Chevrolet vehicles
earned their places as "The Heartbeat of America?. The truck - worn-out and rusted - was purchased sight unseen by David
Terbrueggen, one of our career Jerry Hamm salesmen, in1996. He had the vehicle brought here to Jacksonville. When it arrived in town, he put gas in the carburetor, attached a battery, and cranked the engine. It started right up. He then had it dismantled and carefully and fully restored over a twelve year period from 1996 to 2008. Much of the vehicle as you see it is original,
except for the tires, the cowling, the steel bed and the wood planking in the bed. The cab is bolted to a wooden sub-frame that had to be custom made for the restoration. The wood frame is in turn bolted to the main steel frame. Chevrolet introduced all-steel construction to its trucks starting in 1936. Along with the "Stove-Bolt Six", this construction made them so durable
that they earned the famous tag "Like a rock!" Thank you, David, for letting us share your beautiful truck and its story
here in the new Collectible Motorcar of Atlanta classic car dealership!
