We started off with a very straight truck. Minimal body work was required to achieve the very straight truck we present today for your perusal and viewing pleasure
This truck was restored and rebuilt by a 20+ year time servedprofessionalmechanic.Please bid with confidence that this truck was created by an experienced technician with a great understanding of all the different sub systems within a car that make that car work as a whole!We have a clean and clear Title in han, we have a picture of the title and the Vin tag we will happily supply to any seriously interested parties
We have sold several vehicles on ebay before now, you will see our feedback is high and we will say flawless too over our 15 year ebay history. This truck is a collaboration between ourselves and our Builder in Central California.
Panelalignmentand body gaps are important to us and we hope this shows and can be seen in our photos. These points set a great build from a good original bodied car apart from a thrown together collection of parts which some vehicles are or at least look like when done by untalented hands.We've all seen high dollar cars that were put back together so poorly its a shame!
There is no rust in the truck anywhere.Every chrome piece on the Entire truck is brand newIncluding exterior mirror, interior mirror, inside handles and exterior handles, grill, emblems, bumpers, all dash items, headlight bezels, new headlights,The Wheels which we think really suit this build and style are BG Rod Works Old school in 18 x 8 front and 20 x 8.5 rear wrapped with brand new tires all round.
The 350 SBC in this truck was rebuilt, completely starting with a brand new reground crank, cylinders were bored 30 over, new piston and ring se, all new bearings installed.I like to build our trucks with Over drive transmissions so we installed a rebuilt 700R4 so whoever buys this Icon of a Chevy truck can take off anywhere they so please with no fear or restriction of higher cruising speeds!
Many many new mechanical parts were also utilisedwe tried to list everything purchased new and done to this cool truck but of course there are many more details that we aren't going to include as there isnt enough space here!
The truck has all new glass installed Except the rear.New Regulators fitted to both left and right doors alsoAll new wiring harness front to backWorking brand new electric conversion kit Windshield wipersWe have fitted a Gauge cluster under the centre of the dash so you can keep an eye on the Motors Vital StatisticsThere is a new aluminum radiator as well as new valve covers and Edelbrock air cleaner.The Carburettor is fully rebuilt and serviced.New Distributor
New Wheel cylinders in the rear drums, re surfaced rear drums, resurfaced front rotors. Brand new Calipers and pads up front

Lovely deep reddish brown stained bed wood with chrome strips
We have a nice Billet Steering wheel installed with Bowtie horn pushThis sits a topA new chrome tilt column that absolutely pops against the black dash and red interior.Clear Prism gear indicator
We have always wanted to try a 'Fat Biscuit' themed interior on a truck so took the plunge and did it to this one! We are very pleased with how it came out and how well it works in this truck in our opinion, door panels to match and headliner center is also matching! Lovely rich red carpeting to compliment was also installed as well as matching Vinyl kick panels. Seat frame as you can see was painted.Interior of the cab is painted a gloss black as a contrast to the outside and to compliment the red interior.
We have tried to give you as much quality in a really cool and desirable truck as is sensibly possible in terms of price, new parts, quality of build, rebuilt and new other parts and a style that that we hope the new owner will fall in love with and have a lot of fun with everywhere you might choose to take this truck.
This truck draws a lot of admiring glances and attention everywhere we have so far taken her on our various shakedown runs!
We gave the truck apurposefullooking stance...the ride height is not too low so will be very practical for most driving conditionsThis isachievedby use of a camaro IFS clip and Camaro 73 Era 10 bolt rear Axle.
You get Power Steering, power disc brakes. Independant front Suspension also
The trucks exhaust note is not too loud but also not too quiet, it sounds just right to us...a beautiful note that really befits the trucks looks in our opinion..
The frame was cleaned thoroughly and surface rust removed completely and then paint detailed.. many engine compartment pieces and suspension pieces received the strip and paint detail treatment to give as much attention to detail as is reasonable in a build at this kind of price.
In summary, this is a truck you can jump straight in and enjoy, will give many smiles per mile and that you can be proud of.
