Just arrived from sunny California is a pair of '55 Chevy trucks. This ad is for the swb one, I will list the lwb one separately.
What you see is what you get, it's rolling okay, it is pretty solid but needs a full restoration or whatever you want to do with it. No engine or gearbox in either one. Seat is there, but needs new padding and re-covered. Most of glass will need replaced, the rear window is okay. Both door windows wind up and down so regulators seem to be okay. Both doors open and close and don't drop. Needs bodywork, but floors are good, some heavy pitting to driver's floor area. Cab rear corners need replaced as per normal, but they aren't structural. Tyres obviously shot, and I can sell it with either a set of the standard skinny wheels or a set of the wider ones as each truck came in with a pair of each. The blue paint looks to be the original paint from the factory, so, with the exception of the bits that have been blown in with red oxide, this is proper California "patina". £4800 for the swb, £4200 for the lwb (which I will list when I have pics).
I have a 307 V8 and TH350 from a '69 Camaro and a brand new V8 engine crossmember and TH 350 cross member which I can sell with it if you like, or if you fancy a diesel conversion, I have a '97 BMW 325TDS with manual gearbox, excellent running complete car. This is a great project and remember if you want to go to a full standard spec resto, every single part can be bought brand new via the likes of Topspeed, and if you want to modernise the suspension, you can buy bolt in kits, or plenty of shops in the Uk can clip it for you.
I will register this truck to save you the paperwork, etc.
Give me a ring on 07593 187939, e-mail to [email protected] PM me, or messsage me on this thread. Not wanting any part-ex or swaps, thanks.
p.s. I've re-fitted the other headlight bucket, light and trim, always looks better when it's got both lights.
