1953 Chevrolet 3800 Humpback Forester Green & Cream Medium Truck 216 Inline 6 22
Forester Green & Cream Medium
Garage Kept Motors.) Chevrolet’s Advance Design Trucks offered a new curvy design and a wide range of options from the familiar 3100 Series to Cab Over Trucks and School Buses. This truck was obviously built for the purpose of hauling, although the actual history of this vintage Chevrolet has a few small spots that are unclear.
In 1953 Keithan Bakery and Confectionary, a supplier of baked goods, penny candies, cigarettes, and cigars was the first owner of this unique “Humpback”. The next two owners between the years of 1960 to 1970 were Sunbury Hose Company, and Sunbury Steam Fire Engine Company. The next 3 owners were a route salesman, a gentleman who traded the truck for a Porsche 924, and a Porsche enthusiast who thought he may use the “Humpback” as a pit truck for his racing team.
The cargo area is pretty spartan and features the original wood floor which was refinished with a number of coats of Linseed oil. The metal skid strips were refinished in Juniper Green. The difference in the factory height of the truck compared to Humpback conversion can easily be seen in our photos.
