Please see under description for 100+ HD photos and video


Decided to sell my dream truck. This one is all about what's under that wicked patina, it's been built to drive with some of the best parts you can buy. Arguably the best year and spec of any pick up chev made.


Drivetrain:

Crate H.O. Bowtie 5.7

9.8:1 compression hypereutectic pistons

Hydraulic roller .480/.480 at 235 degrees of duration

Late model D port corvette aluminum heads 58cc

4 bolt main

Heavy duty truck crank

Pink connecting rods

Makes 383 ft/lbs at 4500 rpm and 347 hp at 5500

Polished water pump and chrome alternator

Rebuilt TH350 trans with trans-go shift kit

B&M 2400 RPM hole shot converter

Sanderson headers

3" exhaust with Walker Turbo exhaust

Black Magic Electric desert fan with thermostat and override switch in cab (will never overheat)

Aluminum 16gal fuel tank under bed

All braided or hard fuel line

Electric fuel pump

Majority of work incl. wiring has been done by resto shop in El Cajon CA


Suspension and brakes:

'79 Corvette independent rear suspension with 3:55 POSI and upgraded Vette disc brakes

Heidts Mustang II independent front suspension with power steer

CPP front sway bar

Bilstein shocks all round

Additional bracing to frame

Most welding done by aircraft certified mechanic

Wilwood brakes up front and braided lines

Upgraded manual master cylinder and new lines front to back


Best suspension you can fit to one of these trucks and some of the best brakes, so much more feel than a vac can and is not heavy like people think


Exterior:

The most desirable '55 year, big window with deluxe trim

Sheet metal is in exceptional original condition

Very minor rust issues (see photos)

Awesome looking patina makes this a very unique truck that always stands out at shows

New front and rear glass with new rubbers

New vent rubbers

New felts and weatherstripping

Door glass has crack which suits truck but I have replacement

New American Racing staggered Torq thrust wheels

Near new Cooper Cobra G/Ts 235/60r15 fronts and 295/50r15 rears

Bed was just finished off with neat patina look and 4 coats of epoxy which sits on aluminum sheet

Doors shut nice


Interior:

Interior painted in custom ivory enamel with glass out and doors off then completely reupholstered < 50mi

Fatmat insulation throughout

Later model refoamed seat, much more comfortable than original

Camaro tilt column

Beautiful handmade wood steering wheel

New autometer gauges

Pioneer Bluetooth headunit with Bluetooth, radio, cd, usb etc. in glove box

6x9 speakers mounted in enclosures behind seat (sounds awesome)

Really nice B&M shifter mounted on center console

Belts for 3


If you're after a truck that drives awesome and goes like hell then this is the one. It's full of quality parts in a usable package, not to mention they really don't come better than a '55 short bed big window. As you can see in the video it's very easy to throw around and with the suspension upgrades it will stick to the road f you don't drive like an ape.


I have a ring binder full ofreceipts, wiring diagrams, manuals, installguides, 100s of photos over a few decades and other relevant info on the truck.
