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!
