1954 Chevrolet Other Pickups

This is a 1954 3100 / 5 window from Florida. I bought the truck basically in this condition as a project and have other projects I need to finish first. It was built as a pro-street but I’m sure could be converted to pro touring without too much trouble at this stage. Body; it has a 3 inch chop that was professionally done and overall fits well and the work looks very good after 7 years. The cab is very solid throughout with the exception of some of the metal on the inside rocker returns under the cab. The floor is very solid as is the dash and straight doors etc. and it has power windows with solid glass minus the vents. The front fenders are paint ready with new headlight kits, the rears are solid but driver condition. Bed is solid and straight. Hood is Fair but I do have the reverse hood flip kit. Has rolled rear pan and new bowtie tailgate. Running boards are fair cond. originals. Have power seats and store bought interior kit with carpet. Steering column not connected at this point.

Chassis: Original frame with New Competition Engineering Backhalf with 4 lin, Strange coilovers, Was told a new Currie narrowed Ford 9 inch ( can’t find I.D. ) front has a Heidts Mustang II front end with Flaming River Billet power rack and pinion.

Cab overview most important. Chop, very good. Bodywork on roof appears to be done wel, doors seams are close but not 100% yet paint ready. Firewall very good. Back cab panel solid and very good. Floor is solid but still has some original openings not filled and pedals still there. Outer rockers good but behind some rust that I can send pics of . Doors seem very solid and very straigh, could use new latches and handles, no door poppers in yet.

Wheels Billet Splecialties : The rear wheels are 14.5 x 16 s a few years old but never been on the street, the fronts 8 x 16 s are the same but were still in the boxes until 4 months ago. Rear tires still have stickers but are 10 yrs? 31 x 18 s.

The frame is the original so, look at the pictures closely . it is very solid but it is not finished. The back half was new and the attachment is started decently but will need more to complete, the tubs are fair at best and it is set up for a fuel cell but all this work was done years ago and there are probably new applications for some of the items. The bed is not secured permanently. It will travel ok. The Heidts front end work looks to be done ok and there is a tubular transmission mount installed. I also have a 700 r 4 J-W Racing trans available never used that would be very reasonable if you buy this truck.

Remember though that this is a project truck and some of the work is mocked up for fit. The truck is now located just outside Chicago and has been stored in a heated garage since being brought up 3 years ago. It has a clear Florida Title and I am setting a very reasonable reserve on this truck. I know what the pro tourings can bring and I was tempted but I have something I want to complete first so I’m going to make some room. I will reserve the right to end the auction early but most likely won’t. If you have any questions let me know and thanks for your time. George
