1955 Chevrolet Other Pickups

DISCLAIMER AND HOUSEKEEPING STUFF: THIS IS A OLD TRUCK FROM 1955. IT HAS NOT BEEN IN MY POSSESSION FOR ALL THOSE YEARS SO I JUST SIMPLY CAN LIST WHAT I KNOW, ND WHAT I HAVE LOOKED INTO. THERE ARE I'M SURE MANY THINGS I AM NOT AWARE OF. PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS AND ADDRESS YOUR CONCERNS, R SEND SOMEONE OR COME INSPECT YOURSELF, PRIOR" TO BUYING. THIS IS A COOL RARE TRUCK THAT WOULD BE A GREAT WEEKEND TRUCK FOR SHOWS AND TO WORK ON IN YOUR GARAGE. I HAVE MORE PICS I CAN SEND TO SERIOUS BUYERS. DEPOSIT IS DUE IMMEDIATELY OF 500 DOLLARS AND IT IS NOT REFUNDABLE. IF YOU DO NOT PAY THE BALANCE OR CHANGE YOUR MIND. BALANCE IS DUE WITHIN THREE DAYS OF DEPOSIT. I CAN STORE VEHICLE FOR TEN DAYS INDOORS SAFELY FOR 15 DAYS AFTER IT IS PAID FOR. IT NEEDS TO BE PICKED UP DURING THAT TIME OR OTHER ARRANGEMENTS MUST BE DISCUSSED TO PAY FOR STORAGE FOR LONGER PERIOD. I WILL ASSIST WITH SHIPPING BY MAKING THE VEHICLE AVAILABLE AT ALL REASONABLE HOURS. DUE TO PAST EXPERIENCES, CAN'T LOAD THE VEHICLE FOR THE DRIVER WHO COMES ALONE, ND I CAN'T FIND YOUR SHIPPING COMPANY. I CAN RECOMMEND U-SHIP AS I HAVE USED THEM BEFORE WITH LOTS OF LUCK. VEHICLE IS SOLD "AS IS" WITH NO WARRANTIES EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED. IT IS A OLD RUNNING TRUCK, OT A NEW 100 PERCENT RESTORED SHOW TRUCK. WITH THAT SAID PLEASE ASK QUESTIONS AND THANKS FOR LOOKIN, WILL NOT ADVERTISE A "BEST OFFER" BUT I WILL CONSIDER OFFERS IF YOU WANT TO CALL ME AND DISCUSS BY EMAILING ME YOUR INFO.
I PICKED UP THIS RAT ROD FROM A GUY IN CENTRAL FLORIDA WHO HAS BEEN BUILDING CARS FOR MANY YEARS, E HAD TOO MANY PROJECTS AND I WAS ABLE TO WRESTLE THIS ONE AWAY FROM HIM, EFORE HE GOT AROUND TO COMPLETING ALL THE DETAILS ON IT. IT IS A COOL RUNNING TRUCK, NGINE WAS PAINTED AND DETAILED, OP OF MOTOR ALL REDONE, ALVES DONE, TC. CARBS WERE REBUILT AND ADJUSTED AND DUAL OFFENHAUSER MANIFOLD ADDED WITH CHROME AIR CLEANERS.
HAS REDONE GENERATOR AND NEW 8 VOLT BATTERY, ERY COOL. NEW ALUMINUM RADIATOR, EW HOSES, ELT, TC. ALL FLUIDS CHANGED. TRUCK RUNS AND DRIVES AND MOTOR SOUNDS GREAT, VE DRIVEN IT FOR SHORT DRIVES WITH NO ISSUES, HAVE NOT DRIVEN IT ACROSS THE STATE SO CANT DESCRIBE WHAT THAT'S LIKE.
DOOR WEATHERSTRIPPING IS BAD AND NEEDS REPLACEMENT IF YOU WANT THAT TO BE PERFECT. I'D LEAVE AS IS.
CLUTCH IS WORKING WELL AND SO ARE THE BRAKES, ND TRANSMISSION IS SHIFTING WELL AND GOING INTO ALL GEARS, T IS THREE SPEEDS ON THE COLUMN.
BODY HAS VERY COOL PATINA AND SURFACE RUST AND ONE COAT OF CLEAR. YOU CAN ADD THREE MORE COATS IF YOU WANT, T JUST HAS ONE COAT NOW TO PRESERVE THE PATINA. IT HAS NEW HOOD EMBLEMS, ED WOOD, ND BED STAKES.
HAS CHEVY PAINTED RIMS IN ROD GREEN AND NEW FIBERGLASS WHITEWALL TIRES ALL AROUN, COUPLE OF THE TIRES STILL HAVE THE NEW RUBBER TRIM STILL ON THEM.
FIREWALL WAS PAINTED WHIT WITH COOL STICKERS INSTALLED.
STEP PLATES WERE PAINTED IN GOLD ARE EXCELLENT, ND SIDE SPLASH APRONS ARE PAINTED WITH GOLD LEAF AND GREEN ACCENT.
ROOF IS CUSTOM PAINTED WITH GOLD FLAKE AND A ORIGINAL PATTERN TAKEN FROM A 60'S TABLECLOTH THAT GAVE ITS LIFE FOR THIS ROOF PATTERN. SO ITS A 100 PERCENT ORIGINAL TRUCK.TRUCK HAS A LOT OF COOL STICKERS, ND TRIM AND DECALS, ND ORIGINAL TOUCHES. ITS NOT COOKIE CUTTER WHICH MAKES IT NICE. ITS A RAT ROD OR OLD HOT ROD NOT A TRAILER QUEEN.
INTERIOR IS COOL, ISSING REAR VIEW MIRROR, ND HEADLINER. ( I DID PURCHASE NEW BLACK HEADLINER BOARD KIT, ND I WILL INCLUDE IN THE SALE. )
THE GLASS IS ALL DRIVER GRADE, NE VENT DOOR WINDOW IS CRACKED BUT LOOKS GREAT SO I LEFT IT. ( I DID BUY NEW ONE AND WILL COME WITH TRUCK IF YOU WANT TO REPLACE IT) WINDSHIELD HAS A COUPLE OF AIR BUBBLES FROM NICKS OR SOMETHING BUT TO ME IT LOOKS COOL I WOULD NOT CHANGE IT, TS NOT CRACKED. DOES HAVE SOME DELAMINATION AS DOES MOST OF THE GLASS IN CERTAIN SPOTS. AGAIN IT LOOKS COOL.
ONE REAR CAB CORNER HAS A COUPLE HOLES, ND THE DRIVER SIDE CAB CORNER IS BAD. I LEFT IT, UT I DID PURCHASE A NEW STEEL REPLACEMENT CAB CORNER AND IT WILL BE INCLUDED WITH THE SALE.
HAS WIPER MOTOR AND WIPERS, RANKLY I HAVE NOT TESTED IT I ASSUME IT'S NOT WORKING AS IT SHOULD AND BUYER SHOULD PUT IT IN WORKING ORDER.
FRONT SHOCKS WERE REPLACED AND NEW ONES INSTALLED. REAR SHOCKS I DON'T KNOW THE AGE OF.
HAS REAR TAIL LIGHTS CUSTOM FITTED FROM A MERC INTO THE REAR FENDERS. REALLY NICE CUSTOM TOUCH.
HAS NEW INTERIOR DOOR HANDLES AND CUSTOM DOOR PANELS. WINDOWS DO GO UP AND DOWN.
GAUGES ARE OLD AND FRUMPY AND ORIGINAL. HAS A AFTERMARKET OIL PRESSURE GAUGE, UT NOT DRILLED INTO DASH. DASH IS INTACT WITH NO SILLY RADIO CUTOUTS ETC. CURRENTLY DOES NOT HAVE RADIO AND SPEAKERS. HAS FACTORY RARE RADIO DELETE PLATE. ITS NICE TO SEE A DASH NOT CUT UP. INTERIOR OF CAB IS PAINTED AS IS DASH, ND STEERING WHEEL. NOT MEANT TO BE SHOW PAINT BUT LOOKS NICE.
HAS BRAND NEW GAS TANK AND HOSES.BENCH SEAT FRAME WAS PAINTED AND SOLID, ENCH SEAT IS EHITE AND IT LOOKS LIKE A CUSTOM UPHOLSTERY JOB YEARS AGO, UT I WOULD SAY SEAT IS DYED IN WHITE. AGAIN COOL ROD AND DRIVER GRADE, OT PERFECT.
FRAME HAS NO RUST EXCEPT SURFACE, TS EXCELLENT. THE ONLY RUST I CAN FIND IS WHAT I DESCRIBED IN CAB CORNERS, ND THERE IS ONE HOLE AGAINST THE DRIVER FENDER CORNER THAT YOU CAN SEE FROM INSIDE THE FRONT WHEEL WELL. AND THE DRIVER DOOR SIDE BOTTOM COLUMN HAS A CUTOUT OF RUST MAYBE THREE INCHES LONG BUT IT IS NOT AFFECTING ANYTHING STRUCTURALLY AND NOT AFFECTING DOOR CLOSING OR HINGE WORKING. CAN PROB BE EASILY FIXED WITH A PATCH OR FIBERGLASS BUT I DID NOT WANT TO COVER UP
THIS TRUCK IS NICE, TS NOT PERFECT. PEOPLE ON EBAY ARE SELLING 3100 1955 TRUCKS FOR 10K THAT HAVE FROZEN MOTORS AND RUSTED BODIES. THIS WOULD BE A GREAT STARTER TRUCK AND WITH 2500 DOLLARS I THINK IT COULD BE A 20K TRUCK YOU COULD HANG WITH AT SHOWS AND BE RESPECTABLE. HAS A TONLOAD OF HOURS INTO ALREADY THAT WOULD EITHER COST YOU MONEY AND WORSE TIME TO GET TO THIS STAGE.
PLEASE EXPECT TO MAKE MECHANICAL ADJUSTMENTS AND BODY WORK AND HAVE TO BUY ITEMS TO MAKE THIS TRUCK WHAT IT NEEDS TO BE . BUT ALL THE MAJOR WORK, OTOR, OLD FLAKE, TC, AS BEEN DONE AND THAT STUFF COSTS MONEY.
GOOD LUCK AND THANKS FOR LOOKING.
