Careful detail, quality build techniques, and thoughtful planning were all utilized throughout the wonderful build of this truck. This ‘64 longbed sits on a 1986 ½ ton Chevy Silverado chassis, so drive-ability is improved 10 fold!
The Ultra blue Metallic/Medium Gray Metallic paint work beautifully together to create a clean sharp looking color combo with a subtle light silver pin stripe separating the two cab colors.
The 350 starts right up and runs smoothly, and the 700R4 overdrive automatic transmission shifts clean and smoothly as well.

If you wanted to pull a boat, a vintage trailer, or most anything for that matter, there’s already a hidden receiver behind the rear license plate. Also, this truck being the “Big back window” style, you’ll have no problem seeing anything behind you.
The 18”/20” wheels and tires fit the truck appropriately, and the dual exhaust with Flow Master mufflers give this truck an extra visible kick and tough tone!
Yeah, I think it’s fair to say this is one of those classic trucks that “has it all”. Trucks set up like this one just don’t come around often enough. Truly an excellent find!
