DESCRIPTION

1 owner the last 53 years! He bought it from the original owner. This is a legit 2 owner truck. In 2010 it was restored and upgraded to make it a modern driver while retaining it's vintage look. Updates include a Fatman chassis, GM 350 crate motor, overdrive automatic, air conditioning, power steering, power 4 wheel disc brakes and more.



EXTERIOR: Restored to show quality standards. No rust or damage, the body is straight everywhere. The doors fit square and flush. The paint is gorgeous- the colors and glass finish are excellent. The original grill and bumpers were rechromed. The original steel running boards were Line-X coated for durability. All new soft tinted glass, the windshield still cranks out. New 15 inch steel rims from Wheel Smith have reproduction trim and Goodyear tires. Upgraded 2 speed electric wipers. It has Hologen headlights, LED turn signals and taillights. Your conditioning controls inventor mounted neatly below the - is a nice billet insert with a new set of white auto meter gauges tilt column

All new wiring throughout the truck with upgraded 14 circuit fuse panel. The original seat was rebuilt and reupholstered. Upgrades include retractable seat belts, tilt column, LED interior lights and a Vintage Air system.



ENGINE COMPARTMENT: H.O. GM crate 350-330 hp motor offers excellent reliability and power. It comes fully assembled from Chevy, complete from oil pan to carburetor. It has block hugger Sanderson headers. Custom made All Cool radiator and shroud with a big electric fan. Everything looks like it's properly and neatly installed. In front of the motor it has a modern alternator, serpentine belt system, power steering and Vintage Air. The firewall is painted nice, it has a set of chromed valve covers and billet plug wire holders.



TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Excellent metal box, new tailgate. White oak floor boards with stainless strips. The fuel filler was relocated to the bed floor. It includes a diamond plate tool box that is easily removable.



UNDERSIDE: It has a completely updated Fatman Fabrication chassis. Fatman boxed frame with driveshaft safety loop. Upfront is independent suspension with stainless tubular control arms, QA1 adjustable coil over gas shocks and power rack & pinion steering. In back it has a Pro Link 4 link suspension with tubular control arms, panhard bar and QA1 adjustable coil over gas shocks. All new brake system with 11 inch discs at all 4 wheels. 2 1/5 inch exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers goes all the way out the back. The bottom of the motor is clean, it has high torque starter and chrome flywheel cover. The trans is a rebuilt 700R-4 overdrive automatic. New driveshaft and u-joints connect to a new Ford 9 inch rear. It has 3.70 Trac Loc gears. 18 gallon fuel tank.



I love that it retains it's original vintage appeal while offering modern reliability and performance. It is a good looking truck with a cool story!



I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.

Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
