1959 GMC STEPSIDE PICKUP

We bought this truck back in December of 2015 as part of a package deal (FIVE incredible Impalas 65, 63, 62, 61, 61, plus this beast of a truck).

We had to fix her fuel line, refinish wood floor in bed, installed the bench seat, installed headliner, added new battery- other than that, what a find!

We have used her as a display in our in-house car shows for- tech Seamlesssolutions.com, and wine events cdwines.us

The truck is a one-of-a-kind, makes us smile when we fire her! It will be the same for you as well!

2+ years restoration

1600 miles since completed

Near Show Quality or close. Flip a coin, probably as good as it gets!

Here you go, If you had $80,000 plus to spend, and over two years of your time, you maybe could come up with a truck like this. Provided, you had the knowledge of which builders to use and how you would envisioned the output...

Let's break this down to outside, inside and front-end, suspension and undercarriage. How this truck, still sporting California Black Plates, ever got away from the West Coast is beyond belief to me!

This vehicle is the results of true professionals building and sorting old and new, and creating a one-of-a-kind performance machine!
