Are you a small business owner looking for a unique way to advertise your company? What about a rarely seen Chevrolet Capitol Series LP panel truck that has huge side panel real estate to advertise your business in the most possible unique way! Plus, you have to love and adore the half moon sliding side windows!
Chevrolet rolled out a new one-ton series truck in 1928, the LP series. This example is one of the final 130 examples to receive four-wheel drum brakes in 1928. Another new feature on this series was a four-speed manual transmission.
This extremely rare truck was donated in pieces to the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles, California about 1994. A decade later, it was purchased through eBay from the museum, still in parts. The current panel body was crafted by Wheels of the Past in 2008 and was completely restored and painted in 2017 with a total cost of over $50,000!
This example was repainted in its Trianon Blue over black wings in 2017. The paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The black, rubberized roof, running boards, fenders and radiator make for a great contrast to the main body color. The horizontally split windshield and lights look great, including the faired-in cowl lights.
The bodywork is straight and solid and this truck has some gorgeous woodwork inside. Note that there are no wipers on this truck. The truck’s black bumpers look good and there is a driver’s side-only taillight. The battery under the floorboards looks good as well and we recently had the starter rebuilt by the best in the business. There’s a full-size spare tire under the cargo area.
This truck rides on Firestone Deluxe Champion wide whitewall tires, size 6.00-20 at every corner. Each tire is mounted on a wooden spoke wheel with a chrome center cap. The tires and wheels are all in good, original order.
Under hood is a 171 CID OHV engine; 1928 was the final model year for this engine. The engine is backed by a new-for-1928 four-speed manual transmission with a 3.82:1 rear end.
Inside the tri-colored cab works well – brown vinyl pre-bucket seats, tan door liners and the Trianon Blue metal dashboard but the speedometer is inoperable. The pair of dark brown seats look great and there’s a pass-through to access the spacious rear compartment. There are floormats present (this is a work truck, after all) and a gorgeous wooden headliner that stretches back to the dual rear cargo doors. The standout features are the dual wood benches that line the cargo area.
If a classic truck with a large cargo area that looks like a custom-made paddywagon sounds appealing, you should make some time to check out this Chevrolet 1-ton Panel Truck. Stop by MotoeXotica Classic Cars today to check it out.
