This 53 is super cool and is not rotted out like many... New pain, most new inside, solid, easy driving truck.Great for the cruise ins and shows... Ready to go turn key truck.
Exterior- body is mostly all solid... Only bad places I have seen are the bac, bottoms of the front fenders... I attached photos.The running boards are totally solid and can be stood on with no flex. There ARE ding, dents, that were left when body was sanded down, primed, painted and cleared. Finish is very cool and everyone who sees it loves it. All glass is new with new rubber seal, except the vent glass, Vents open and clos, new rubber, new weather strip. Bed floor is fabricated rails with wood inserts. Headlights and tail lights work.The visor can be seen in some of the pictures .... It is available if preferred.
Interior - new seat, new rubber mat, new headliner and door panels, gauges are original and do not work. There are gauges under the dash that do. Gas tank behind the seat is new. Floors have been patched in places but are solid and no rust.
Drivetrain- 235 in line 6 cylinder with power glide automatic transmission. Original shifter was kept on the column.Offenhouser intake manifold with Holley 600 CFM 4 barrel carb. Key start on the dash. 12 volt converted. Motor is super clean and motor compartment is open hood showable. Runs great. 9" ford rear - Chevy power disc brakes in front- drum rear.All brakes were gone through rear drums just replaced . Battery moved to the motor compartment ...Wheels are boss 338 - 20's in rear, 18's in front... New tires on all 4 corners.
This is a super cool truck.. I have had many and this one seems to get more looks, comments, horn honks than any !Please do not buy this and think you are getting a nut and bolt restored truck... It is very nice and way better than most of the junky rat rods I see... But it is not new, and it is not perfect. I have tried to describe it to the best of my ability.
