1955 Chevrolet 3100 pick-up truck, for sale in the rearview

For several years this 1955 Chevrolet truck was parked in front of a house along busy Highway 75 in Oneonta, Alabama. A faded for sale sign was leaned against the windshield. The bed was rotted out and it needed everything. It was one of the “second series” 1955 models. I passed on it because it looked too rough. That was 4 years ago. This 1955 Chevy 3100 disappeared not long after I took this photo. 

Today, I would buy that truck. Should have, could have. They always look better in the rearview mirror.

Have you got a old car or junkyard story? Send them to junkyardlife.

I bought one of those about ten years ago with the intention of restoring it. I sold it because I was moving to another state. Bad move... wish I had held on to it.

You've got to take it as a lesson to do things different - next time.
Good luck!

9% and the approximate current interest rates for new cars from established manufacturers is as low as about 5. a Truck Drivers The insurance companies do not prefer drivers who are either too young or too old and reserve the lowest premiums for those within the safe age group of 30-60 years.
