Description:

1938 Ford Other

1938 Ford pickup truck on 2003 S-10 chassis with airbags / air ride, power steering, power brakes, Qfi 4i fuel injection system with electronic controller, small block Chevy engine and 700R4 transmission, red neon underglow, 17x9 front / 20x10 rear Ridler wheels, Dolphin gauges, tilt steering column, removable X brace for easy access to engine/transmission/driveshaft, all lights are functional and LED. This truck has a lot of time and money invested and is all metal (no fiberglass). The running boards were hand fabricated and are not the original running boards - they also have the builder's shop logo on them but it can be removed. The truck presents nicely and is a fun driver, but it is not a trailer queen show truck. There are some paint chips/cracks and the body isn't perfect. It's a very presentable 82 year old driver that would present well at local shows and draw a lot of attention.
Cons: there is a small oil leak, the airbags slowly lose air over a day or two, driver's door glass has a crack in it, and speedometer/odometer quit working after ~100 miles due to a stripped speedo gear - a bracket has since been made for the cable to prevent this from happening again (speedo gear still needs to be replaced, current mileage estimated at ~300).

Your bid is to buy, not to look. You are welcome to check it out before the auction ends or hire a local shop of your choice to inspect it for you. I can get pictures of anything you want, so please ask if you want to see something that isn't pictured here. I can get additional videos too, just ask. I have the truck advertised for sale locally and reserve the right to end the auction early if it sells locally. I am not looking for any straight up trades, but may consider taking a partial trade up to $10,000 in value - no projects! I can assist with shipping if you are not local, but you're responsible for all costs and the truck doesn't leave until payment has cleared. Cash or wire transfer preferred payment methods.
