This is a recent build with approximately 2000 miles on
truck. Most bugs have been worked out and it is ready to drive regularly. A few minor items to finish for new owner as desired. Has a great sound, deep exhaust, and low idle from headers and 3" exhaust pipes and new mufflers. The truck cruises down the highway awesome with the OD 700R4 professionally built and installed transmission.
The truck does have power brakes (all new power booster and master cylinder frame mounted below) with 4 wheel disc brakes. The suspension on the rear is leaf springs, mustang 2 on the front. The frame is an original 1953 blasted, primed and painted. There is no power steering but handles nice without after adding the mustang 2 front end suspension and steering. It does not have AC but is setup to add if you prefer with the mild cam, just need to buy and add system. I prefer 2 windows down.
The truck body is pretty solid but not a show truck. It has some dings, dents, and patina. This is how it is suppose to look. The center Jump seat to convert to bench snaps in quickly. With removed there are cup holders and center tray underneath. Install if need to fit 3 people or remove to hold your drinks. Center has shoulder belt and two captains chairs are lap belts.
The radio was just installed and has Bluetooth to connect phone, even mic for phone. Has 12 inch sub, rockford fosgate amplifier, and new speakers. Custom Kick panels wrapped to match reptile skin. Headliner matching reptile covering.
