Now sold to Jason in Texas! Congratulations!
New pictures posted! Someone asked about the condition of the cab corners… these were patched with new sheet metal as needed when the truck was repainted. We have shown in photos how nicely a magnet adheres, in case anyone was worried about body filler. (There is none.)
If you were going to have TWO perfect cars in your garage, one would of course be a Bugeye and the other might just be this handsome green truck. They complement each other so nicely.
This is a friend’s truck. He bought it in Ohio about 30 years ago and has garaged it in CT ever since. It shows about 64,000 miles, and that feels like the original mileage given the unmolested condition. The truck is just right in about every way… if is nice enough to show and impress yet used enough that you can still haul stuff without fear of damage. The bed has a few nicks and scratches yet the cab and overall finish is as clean and tidy as a well pressed denim work shirt.
She was repainted once in the original color about 25 years ago. Interior was restored at about the same time. Now it’s perfectly worn-in.
We have just replaced all the brake parts and pinion seal. The flathead V8 is strong. Fit with the original three speed transmission. Everything works, fun to drive and a serious head-turner.
You can find newly restored and modified trucks. You can find beat-to-death trucks. One in this condition seems quite rare. While some restoration work has been done, this one feels like the perfect original truck you found in your grandfather’s barn in Iowa that was ready for you to drive home, use and enjoy.
Price is $23,995. Call if you would like more pictures or information.
