The truck is ready for Clear Coat but I could not decide if I wanted that look or not. If the Truck does not make the reserve, I probably will clear coat it.
Still has the AC compressor and brackets mounted on the engine, if you want to add air.
The overhead is missing the inside trim that surrounds the windshield. I have oversize washers holding it into place. “See photo”.
The seats are old and from an 86 Oldsmobile, they just have new seat covers over them.
No Air ride.
After building this truck, I took it to North Carolina Dept. of Motor Vehicles and I asked them to inspect the work and Issue a New Replica title, since the trucks frame is no longer original and is placed on an S10 frame. They issued me a new Replica title.
Shipping: I will load the truck on a trailer and deliver to you, for $1.00 per mile, mileage based upon google maps, from my address in North Carolina to you.
