Description:

1959 Chevrolet Other

Selling my 1959 Big Back Window Short Wheelbase Fleetside.

I have owned it for 6 years. I did all of the work on the truck. It has a clear Texas title in my name.

The truck is in very good shape for a 59 pickup. It has original sheet metal. It is on a stock frame that has been modified for air ride. It is a cool truck that could be great with a little work. It is not perfect but is fun to drive and show.

700R4 Transmission with Shift Kit

Weiand Stealth Intake with Holley 670 DP Carb

Body:

Factory Sheet metal with standard patches at cab corners, fender bottoms and rockers

Bed had no rust. Stake pockets were shaved. Bed rails are notched for tires.

No Rot around window frames before paint.

What it needs:

Passenger door Bottom hinge bracket is stripped on the door side. Needs repair.

Tranny needs OD switch. Needs fuel gauge. Has a battery drain I cannot find. Needs to be fixed.

No wipers, no heater, no A/C. Has small oil leaks and needs pan gasket and or rear seal.

Front bag valves switched to electric. They work now just need upgrade.(Will provide valves)

Rear bumper installed. Have the bumper but no brackets.

A real paint job.It is painted with PPG base coat.

The truck runs and drives fine. Starts up every time. I have driven to shows 150 miles away. It tracks well and it stops very good. When driving very low, the front tires will rub after about a full turn of the steering wheel. I air it up when I need to make sharp turns. It sits flat on the rockers when aired out. I installed 2 cab length heavy steel angles under the frame to keep it from dragging the rockers off. Even if a tire or bag fails, it will not drag the rockers. I have a set of wide whites that can be purchased with the truck. I have included a pic with them installed. Wide Whites are not included in this auction.

Money will need to be exchanged before the truck leaves my hands. Cash or funds through Chase or Bank of America will work best. Paypal is fine if you pay the fees. If you arrange shipping. I can work with your shipper. It could be delivered within 250 miles of Houston for a fee, (Deposit required) I will trailer it to you.

All funds must clear before the truck and title are handed over. The truck is for sale locally, and I reserve the right to end the auction early if a buyers comes with 19500.00 cash. Message me if you need a number to call and discuss.
