1947 Chevrolet Other Pickups Luxurious farm trim Additional Info:

This is a very fine example of the first in this series of Chevrolet trucks. It is a local truck from semi-arid west Nebraska, so it is not rusty at all. We stepped up a bunch to get this bought, but turns out it is well worth it. Truck looks, starts, runs, drives, and stops great. All gauges and lights work. Brakes are up. Any marginal glass, we replaced. We polished it over a very straight 70 year old farm truck. We also painted a few other things to make it totally respectable. As with any vehicle, there will be something that got missed or I forgot to mention. Please look pictures over closely before calling. This is a 216, with a 4 speed, 2 speed axle, heater, and hoist. Even though this is a neat old truck, it will bring a small percentage of what a pickup would bring. That being said, expect this to bring somewhere between $5,500 and $8,500, depending on who's watching. A pickup would be an easy $20,000. BE CAREFUL!!! It is no-reserve. Your bid counts. You are responsible for the shipping of your vehicle. We help load weekdays at no charge. We also have some carriers that we work with. It is a great find and what you bid is all you pay, no extra fees. Keep in mind that most of vehicles sell before the scheduled end of sale. Don't be afraid to give son, Nate a call for more information and possibly get it bought over the phone. Nate is 308 353 0605. Mike is 308 353 8510. Check our feedback. We have been pickin' here since 1959, and that '40 Mercury that Dad picked as the first, is restored and sits with the rest of the herd in our museum. We understand show cars on this farm, 'cause we can build 'em. As one would expect, there are quite often 4 generations out here on the farm. Dad is 84 and maintains the museum vehicles. I am Mike, and the one recovering from back and leg surgery. Nate; is the active one, and when the girls aren't with him, he is in the shop with the help working on machinery and vehicles. We take some of the time to raise wheat and corn and anything else that is apparently worth nothing. Otherwise; some days we are working on semis and combines, some days we are polishing old hubcaps. Years ago I was selling a few too many vehicles, so the state department of motor vehicle sales invited me to get a dealer license, so we have been Dodson Motors, Inc. a licensed and bonded Nebraska dealer since 1986. Our family has been here since 1886. Our sales building is in town in a 1910 building and that address is Dodson Motors, Inc., 219 N. Pennsylvania Ave., POB 206, Venango, NE 69168. We keep sold vehicles out at the farm, 2 miles from town, until they are picked up. We don't charge storage, but keep in touch. We don't store them for years. Be sure you have talked to your banker, wife, Grandpa, cat, or your preferred sympathetic source before you bid, as you are entering into a contract with your bid. Contact us within 48 hours of winning bid and pay the $500 deposit(unless prior arrangements have been made with us), and pay remainder within 5 business days. No vehicles, parts, or titles leave here until payment has cleared our bank. We are currently getting less than 5 cents for the wheat in that loaf of bread, hence we sell things. Thanks, Mike Dodson.
