1953 Dodge Other

The time has come for me to sell my 53 Dodge pilothouse truck. The truck itself was a frame off build. Most everything is new or been redone on the chassis. The chassis was also completely painted with KBS rust protective paint. The engine is a 1976 Corvette 350, t has a really lumpy cam and it runs like a raped ape. Overall a great running engine. Rebuilt stock radiator with an electric fan. It is backed by a th400 with a lokar shifter kit. It also has an electronic to mechanical drive unit for the speedometer. The rear end is a Chrysler 8-1/4 out of a '93 Jeep Cherokee with 3.55 gears and has all new drum brakes and a pinon seal. The front axle is a dropped axle from Nostalgia Sid, ith rusty hope disc brakes. Everything is new so it stops on a dime. It still has the stock cross steer box which has a little wear but drives straight down the road, o wandering. Like new 670-15 and 820-15 coker whitewalls with 1954 Chrysler hubcaps. I had the stock seat reupholstered in white and black. The rear fenders are re radiused to match the fronts. Custom made rear tail light panel with 52 Buick tail lights. Brand new oak floor in the bed. The paint is fresh on it and it has been sitting in the garage, t will clean up great.
Anything the truck is missing in the pictures like the grille/glovebox (signed by Gene Winfield) I have and is included in the sale. There are also tons of extra parts (doors, ood, unning boards, tc) included.
As you can see by the pictures, here are some things that still need to be addressed but I have put a few thousand miles on this truck and it runs great. I would not hesitate to jump in and drive across the country. I used this nearly daily for about 2 years as it was my only option for a pickup.
The truck is licensed in PA although the inspection has lapsed do to us having it apart to paint it. I can get it inspected with no problem if the buyer wishes. Clear title in my name.
Please do not hesitate to ask me any questions, uyers with no feedback please contact me before bidding.

I should add that the paint and bodywork are very presentable but not flawless.

The truck is also sold as is.
