Rare 1955 Chevrolet Model 3112 Carryall Wagon will be offered by Auctions America on Friday, November 21, 2014, and is estimated at $80,000 – 100,000. According to the General Motors Heritage Archive, the Model 3112 is described in documents as a “Model 3112 Windshield Cowl Chassis” that was set up to have custom bodywork fitted by the coachbuilder of the purchaser’s choice. A running chassis with fenders, windshield, hood and grille were the main components illustrated in company paperwork.
This particular Model 3112 represents a rare example that has bodywork from J.T. Cantrell & Co. of Huntington Station, New York and comes with a copy of its original invoice from Gifford Chevrolet, Inc. in South Orange, New Jersey.
This presents a wonderful opportunity to acquire a documented and rare “woodie” that was originally restored in the mid-1980s, and is a former AACA Grand National First Prize winner. It comes with receipts documenting the process.
