Back On Market II: 1976 Chevrolet G50 Snub Nose – Sold?
February 15, 2021 Update – while this “Classifind” expired recently, given the seller’s past history we suspect may not actually be sold yet. For now, we’re labeling this ride “Sold?” However, we will keep an eye on updated listings. In the interim, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
January 11, 2021 Update – You know what they say when you assume something. In this case, this interesting G50 Snubnose we thought sold in November just reappeared on Craigslist featuring the same pictures and $29,500 asking price.
November 10th Update: We just confirmed the Craigslist ad for this unique G50 Snub Nose expired and with no replacement listing found, we’re assuming this truck sold.
October 13th Update – Another month gone without a sale. One month after seeing the second listing at $29,500 for this interesting pickup, this fresh listing uses the same description and pictures along with the same $29,500 asking price.
September 14th Update – Sometimes deals fall through for a variety of reasons. One week after seeing the original listing for this unique Chevy truck deleted by the private seller, we came across a fresh listing with the same asking price.
September 4th Update – while updating our Truckin’ Tuesday database, we confirmed the private seller of this unique Chevy C50 Snubnose deleted their Craigslist post, so we’re calling this one “Sold!”
You might be surprised to learn that some of the most popular trucks we’ve featured to date on GuysWithRides for Truckin’ Tuesday have not been typical half-ton pickups. They continue to be the rare heavy-duty models that enthusiasts have heavily modified into custom pickups. Our latest example is this 1976 Chevrolet C50 Snub Nose truck first listed in August 2020 on Craigslist in North Reading, Massachusetts with a you-can’t-replicate-it-for-this asking price of $29,500.
In addition to the detailed description below, the private seller provides this walk-around video of their C50:
If you dare to be different and want or just need a heavier duty truck to cruise in, just remember this C50 is nothing but trouble. Good luck with the purchase!
