This 1947 Chevrolet Thriftmaster is a one-ton tow truck that was acquired by the seller approximately 10 years ago. The truck is finished in red over black upholstery, and power comes from a 235ci inline-six paired with a four-speed manual transmission. Features include an Ernest Holmes Model 515E wrecker box with pulleys and cables as well as roof-mounted auxiliary lighting and lap belts. Service performed in 2021 reportedly included the installation of new spark plugs and an oil change. This Advance Design truck is now offered with a clean Montana title in the name of the seller’s LLC. Chevrolet’s Advance Design trucks were introduced for the 1947 model year and remained in production through early 1955. This example is finished in red and is equipped with an Ernest Holmes Model 515E wrecker box with pulleys and cables as well as a five-window cab, roof-mounted auxiliary lighting, dual towing mirrors, and a chrome front bumper. The doors and wrecker box feature hand-painted black and yellow lettering. The truck features a dually setup, and the polished 16″ wheels are mounted with 245/75 Yokohama Geolander H/T-S front and Bridgestone V-Steel rear tires. Braking is handled by drums at all four corners. The cabin features a bench seat trimmed in black with red piping along with a matching headliner and door panels. Equipment includes lap belts, a locking glovebox, and a rubber floor mat. The three-spoke steering wheel fronts a painted steel dash and instrumentation including an 80-mph speedometer and a combination gauge. The five-digit odometer shows 1,400 miles, 200 of which were added under current ownership. Total mileage is unknown. The 235ci inline-six features a single carburetor and an oil bath-style air cleaner. The truck retains a generator. New spark plugs were reportedly installed in 2021, at which time the oil was changed. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission.
