According to the latest monthly Hagerty Vehicle Rating, classic Chevrolet pickup trucks are the most popular and most quoted (for insurance rates) of any pickups available. And the valuations for these vintage models seem to be climbing as more and more collectors get involved.

Through Saturday, Barrett-Jackson Auction Co. is hosting its annual auction at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, and there are some impressive Chevy pickups getting ready to go across the block. If you have any interest in classic trucks, or if you ever wanted to attend or call in to make a bid to a Barrett-Jackson auction, you might want to check out its website for local TV listings and more details.

Beautiful trucks, some nice custom work done.

Well.... they got close with that '60 but there's only one model I would 'collect' as a showpiece and that would be a '59.

That 1950 Chevy 3100 is my cup of tea!


No, it isn't. A whimpy 2013 Chevy 1500 is your tea. Drink up, chump.

@ Big W

Relax...no nonsense is needed today! Easy on papajim

That black 1957 c6 custom is a beauty!

Be nice to papajim. Let's try to all be happy for once

I don't much like restomods.
I'm more interested in what survivors and true restorations bring.

I'd rather have the Ford Fairlane.

When you pop the hood on one of those beauties above, there is a GM engine underneath. When you pop the hood on a classic Ford pick-up, there is a GM engine underneath. This pattern will continue for decades. I wonder why......LOL!

I wonder why......LOL!

Because they can not afford it, you dumba$$

And we all know your stupidity will continue for decades and on.

GM owners use GM engines because they want their classics to carry on, Ford owners use GM engines because their tired of trucks that will not run.

The 1950 and the 1957 3100 Customs steal the show base on my taste!

Because they can not afford it, ..........

30 years from now, you will see restored 2004 F-150 with a 5.3L Chevy engine under the hood. I'm pretty sure there will be no running 5.4 triton engines left on the planet, and i'm damn sure nobody will be wasting their time trying to make one run again.

some people have more money than brains

Agree, I prefer survivors and restorations to original. I do appreciate the time and effort that someone put into these vehicles and that they still survive. Better to restomod than to have a vehicle rotting away in a salvage yard or crushed up and sent to China to make appliances.

Ha! Good luck finding a surviving GM anything

Thanks for confirming your idiocracy GMSRBogus, poor guy. I wonder what the dolt says when all those GM race cars have Ford rear ends. That’s where you actually get the Power to the ground.

@ Frank, You know Ford race cars always use the GM 2 speed transmissions also.

I wouldn't not pay a penny for those junks.

I know I'm going to upset the apple cart here so I apologize ahead of time.
Yep, I agree; resto-mods are a dime a dozen. Survivors are harder to find and bigger a treasure to find. A survivor or barn find is a lot more gratifying than chopping, cutting, bagging, custom interiors, installing full blown LTs, and hyped tranny. Buy a new truck if you want all that. Resto guys are making it difficult to find a true blue survivor. Like Carini says "they're only original once!". I get waved at, thumbs up, and random men and women stop me to admire my stock-grandpa truck, with all matching numbers, Chevy Apaches. They've not been mutilated. I cringe when some guy tells me I'd be better off I'd rip out the perfectly running, non-leaking, good compression, 235 and install a Chevy crate engine. Ugh. Over my dead body.

No apology necessary Darlene. It's nice to have you weigh in.
I, for one, would like to hear more about your Apache.

The photo's show how far the asymmetric wheel wells go back. GM certainly owns the trademark design by now.
Sorta like the dip-sill door windows will be Ford's trademark in a couple years.

....Foghorn Leghorn 1946-1963. R.I.P.

I had a survivor 58 chevy truck pull into my shop a few years back. It was an inline 6 and running very poorly with no power. A compression test revealed no compression on 2 adjacent cylinders. Pulled the head and found the head gasket was blown. Replaced it , bolted it back up and it ran fine. That engine was so easy to work on. That truck was so cool.

I don't much like restomods.

WHAT!! Foghorn Leghorn died!!??
I thought everyone knew those old inline six cylinders would run forever plus 7 days. And if you want you can soup them up quiet a bit. 6=8 as some say. :-)
