In January, auctions will take place, on which celebrity things will be sold, including a pickup truck commissioned by Bruce Willis.

In the early 1990s, Bruce decided to rebuild the car by giving the car a tuning studio. At his request, the pickup was returned to its original appearance, the salon was leather-coated, decorated with expensive varieties of wood and equipped with air-conditioning. The 3.5-liter engine of the car has been refined. It was boosted, equipped with a Holley carburetor, a double exhaust system with new collectors. As a result, the pickup turned into a real mascara.

In November 2014, Bruce Willis sold his unique pickup to a friend from Santa Monica (California, USA), who later resells it to a familiar Canadian resident in Alberta.

The trembling attitude of the actor to the pickup is not accidental. From 1947 to 1955, the Chevrolet 3100 was the best-selling pickup truck in the United States. Gasoline engine V8 in volume of 3.5 liters developed a power of 90 hp. and 235 Nm and was equipped with a 3-speed manual gearbox. For an additional payment it was possible to buy a pickup truck with 4-speed mechanics. In 1954 the pickup was updated. In the list of options an automatic box Hydra-Matic appeared, and the windshield ceased to consist of two halves. Generation after generation, model by model, pickup grew to what is today sold under the name Chevrolet Silverado 1500.
