In 1934 Chevrolet introduced its all new line of commercial vehicles, the DB series. From the beginning they were very popular and this marked the first time that Chevrolets passenger cars and light duty trucks truly diverged. The initial design of the DB series trucks was so good that in 1936 Chevy decided to keep the initial design of the the DB series, but now dubbed the FB, only updating a few stylistic details such as the horizontal louvers on the hood sides. The 1936 FB was also the first time Chevrolet used the bowtie emblem on its trucks. These trucks served many small businesses around the country and proved to be very durable and reliable, though very few survived as these were utilitarian vehicles so they weren't preserved as well as cars of the same time period. Today we have this very seldom seen model from Chevrolet, the FB series 1936 Chevrolet panel delivery. 

This particular truck is in outstanding condition and has been treated to a beautiful restoration. Prior to the restoration, it was in very well preserved original condition and part of a collection for many years. Upon our acquisition of the truck we gave it a very well deserved restoration. The 216 cubic inch 6 cylinder overhead valve engine has been completely rebuilt and the entire truck; body and chassis has been restored. It was sold to a gentleman for his Pie business and painted in the handsome colors of that business and it served him very well as this truck gets a lot of attention wherever it goes. Now it is time for this very rare FB panel truck to find a new home. It is turn key ready to be driven, showed or used for deliveries. An exceptional example of these seldom seen early light trucks from Chevrolet. Also offered separately is an original 1930s Mullins trailer painted to match the truck, more information about the trailer is available.
