1959 Chevrolet Fleetside

Owner: Olen Moore – Odessa, Missouri

This month’s featured truck is a prime example of how an early Chevrolet Fleetside appeared when new. Few near 100 point restorations of GM’s early fleetsides exist today, so this little truck is a real attention getter. Looking at this like new pickup is as if going back in time. It is even painted the original Galway green, so popular during the late 1950’s.

The owner is Olen Moore of Odessa, Missouri. He has recently completed a detailed three year restoration of this fleetside. It had not been exposed to major abuse during its 42 year life and therefore was an excellent candidate for this exact frame off restoration. Most parts were still in place so there was no guessing as to how the truck should be reassembled. Of course, most parts needed replacing or restoring and Olens skill has made this pickup new again.

To keep it just as it was from the factory, Olen rebuilt its original 235 six cylinder engine and kept the column shift 3 speed. It drives just like new and nicely keeps up with traffic.
