This truck is among the finest 1955 1st series truck you will ever find. Extremely well executed frame-off restoration with no expense spared. In addition to the very fine restoration, this truck is highly accessorized with very desirable options, such as split bench seat with articulating driver's seat, NOS heater system, clock, hat holder, just to name a few.
The paint is base/coat, clear/coat, and the products used was a high quality brand. The paint as well as the rest of the truck has no issues. The big 261 in-line 6, dual carburetor engine starts up easily cold or hot, and the transmission shifts smoothly. There are no squeaks or rattles in this truck either, it's a very quality restoration.
All of the gauges, the lights and all of the accessories on this truck work properly. It's truly one of the nicest trucks I've seen and have the pleasure to have here in my shop.
The truck drives very nicely also, the acceleration is a little stronger than a 235-6 would be, the brakes work great, and the steering is easy thanks to power steering. The original steering wheel was cut down to a smaller diameter which allows for a little more room for the driver, and the articulating seat makes for an extra comfortable drive in the event you hit a bump in the road.
The chrome and bright work is excellent, and you'll notice the additional front and rear fender adornment that likely came from a Suburban, and gives this particular truck a more upscale appearance...Which it deserves.
If you're considering a classic truck, and you've got your sights on a '50's vintage style truck, and only the finest will work for you...This just might be your truck!
