1949 Chevrolet Other PickupsUp for auction is a rare GMC 5 window deluxe cab 1/2 ton short wheel base step side truck. This truck was a frame off restoration. I tried to keep the truck as original looking as possible. But at the same time I changed some things so you can actually enjoy the truckon modern roads so basically this is a" resto modded " truck All nuts and bolts have been replacedThe frame was sand blasted and painted with chassis paint. The king pins on the front axle have been replaced along with the rear leaf shackles. The truck has been painted in single stageFire Mist red metallic flake The cab and all body parts were media blasted and primed using Z Chrome filler primer. I have been told by a lot of people that this is a show truck. I did not build this truck to be a show truck or trailer queen. I restore these trucks to use everyday. Below is a list of everything that was done to the truck that I can remember. The front tag topper comes with the truck but not the front personalized tag. This truck runs great and I woulddrive it any where. As far as the mileage on the engine goes, I was driving the truck before I hooked up the speedometer cable. So there is roughly around 2000 miles on the truck since I restored it maybe a little less or a little more. The truck runs and drives great and is a real head turner. And my sale price is reasonable so if you are looking for a truck like this do not let this one pass you buy
