1955 Chevrolet Other Pickups 3100 big window deluxe
Some kook hit the buy it now and then cancelled so I am relisting my beautiful 1955 Chevrolet big window shortbed 3100 picku, Los angeles built and always stayed nearby. I could not believe how solid and rustfree this truck was when I went to look at it ! Previous owner told me it had been stored in his wherehouse for over 30 year, hinge pocket, floo, cab corner, totally solidwhere these are usually rusty !
He had just installed a nice 350 with header, new 4 barrel carb., aluminum radiato, new batter, new alternato, 700R4 trans with Lokar shifter and new exhaust .
I completely disassembled the truc, glass ou, bed off etc. and had it professionally media blasted to bare metal . Had a beautiful 2 stage paint job done 2 tone green and whit, color sanded and buffed . All told I spent close to $8000 for blasting and paintwork . Installed all new factory green tint glass with all new rubber and polished trim . Custom stained and spar varnished bedwood kit with new polished stainless strips and hardware . Chip guard on inside of bed before paint . All brand new bumpers, grill, emblem, molding, door handle, tailights etc. etc.
Brand new steering whee, seat very nicely redon, new headline, new speedomete, gas gaug, sending unit and beze, new aux. temp. oil pressure and amps guages in whit, new chrome dash knob, handles and crank, new stock rubber floor ma, new weatherstripping and lots of new stainless hardware . New wiring harnes, all lights working .
I wanted kind of an old school hot rod loo, I installed 3" drop Posies springs in the front and 2" drop in the rear . If you want it stock I will reinstall the stock parts or include them if you like . Stock 15" clip wheels on brand new Coker wide white, new stock caps and rings . Nice finned vintage style valve covers .
It run, drive, steer, stop, shifts and looks great ! Steers very eas, rides nice and gets compliments like you wouldn't believe !!!
Before paint with the bed off I pressure washed it underneath and shot it with chassis black paint and undercoating .
I have clea, clear Ca. title in my name and it is currently registered on black plates that say "55 TASK" because Chevrolet named this body style "TASK FORCE" when they switched over from the previous " ADVANCED DESIGN " series . In my opinion these were some of the best looking trucks ever made . I have a 2016 Silverado which Ithought wasvery nice lookin, until I parked the 55 next to it !
It has1 mile on the new speedometer and the whole truck since paint and everythin, not sure how many on the truck but I will include the old speedometer/odometer with the truck . It is not a flawless $100,000 restoratio, but a very nice looking driver indeed !
Please have it inspected and ask any questions before bidding . Sold as i, full payment in 3 days by bank wire transfer only . I can deliver it to L.A. for $250 after receiving payment in full if you would like to export it or whatever . I reserve the right to end the auction at any time if a deal is struck . Thank you .On Jul-22-16 at 15:31:19 PDT, seller added the following information:
Somebody was just asking about installing Vintage A/C and it's a good questio, at the current buy it now price of$34,955.5, I will purchase and include a brand new in the box Vintage A/C setup that the new owner can have installed . I think the deluxe system runs about $150, if you don't want i, deduct $1500 from the buy it now price and it becomes $33,455.55 .
