Classifind Cut: 1948 Chevrolet 6400 Loadmaster Stakebed – $6,800

Nov 2020 | Classifind Cut, Classifinds, Truckin Tuesday

The patina look on vintage trucks is so popular that simulating over a half-century of natural wear has become an art form in its own right.  However, this 1948 Chevrolet Loadmaster 6400 Stake Bed relies on its clear-coated original patina, right down to the original Jersey company that used this truck when new.  That combined with the fact it currently features a New York State inspection good through 2021 motivated us to highlight this heavy-duty survivor just listed yesterday here on Craigslist in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania with an asking price of $6,800.  The Collector Car Market Review Online Tool confirms that ask is right in line with this guide’s current #4 “Fair” appraisal of $6,450.  If you are serious about buying this 1948 time capsule, you can start the conversation by calling Matt at (570) 977-8876.  When you connect, please remember to mention you saw their Loadmaster featured here on Good luck with the purchase!
