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. Only rear cab corners were repaired and lower front fenders with quality metal repair sections
This truck was restored and rebuilt by a 20+ year time servedprofessionalmechanic and his team.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 new, Inside and out.Including 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. 235/40 x 18 up front and 255/35 x 20 in the rear
The 350 4 bolt main small block 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.Smooth shifting Turbo 350 transmission that was rebuilt some 6,000 miles ago was installed.
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 isn't 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 Windshield wipersWe have fitted a new Gauge cluster under the centre of the dash so you can keep an eye on the Motors Vital StatisticsThere is a new radiator as well as new valve covers and air cleaner.The Carburettor is brand new
New Wheel cylinders and shoes in the new rear drums, resurfaced front rotors. Brand new Calipers and pads up front and renewed lines through out

Lovely deep tan stained bed wood with chrome strips
We have a nice polished aluminum steering wheel installed with Bowtie horn pushThis sits a topA new chrome tilt column that absolutely pops against the white dash and teal interior.Clear Prism gear indicator
Having done a 'fat biscuit' style interior before and seeing how good it looked we thought we'd do it again only with vintage sedan style cloth inserts for the fat biscuit portion of the seats. Our inspiration for the interior comes from the 62 and 62 Impala's and Nova's with the same interior color against white bodies.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 teal carpeting to compliment was also installed as well as matching Vinyl kick panels. The door panels were not done in time for the picture shoot however updated pictures will be posted to our facebook page. Panels will be full height. Seat frame as you can see was painted.Interior of the cab is painted a gloss white and is a nice finish.The last hole is being filled with a dummy knob but wasn't done in time for these pictures.
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 mid 70's Era 10 bolt rear Axle.All new shock all round, relocated gas tank to under rear bed
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 sporty note that really befits the trucks looks in our opinion..Brand new muffler system from manifold back, dual exhaust .
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.
