    I actually bought this in May. I was gonna get it delivered from a shop in Vermont, then that didn't work out and I decided to go get it in June. That ended up being an adventure(worth checking out) which ended with me not having the truck. Which wasn't a big deal because I had my left arm operated on late in June, so being in a cast for 6-7 weeks put driving a 3 on the tree with no power steering out of the equation.

    Gave me plenty of time to make a new key chain for it though lol

    Peter wound up dropping her off a week into my left arm's rehab. So I got a good 3-4 weeks driving it before Monday, when I got the right arm cut up:eek:

    It's a '54, 3spd, straight 6, 4.27 rear. Body is in decent shape...it's a 10 footer, which is what I wanted...something I don't have to worry about getting beat up. Wood in the bed is in decent shape. I dig that it's a stock style front end without a SBC. I'm not gonna lie, one of these days I'd like to build a slammed "resto-mod" effie, but it won't be this one. This one is just gonna be an around town bomber.

    not bad ... that should get some attention =)
     
  6. Super truck! Great score. The only thing I'd do is add a three speed overdrive transmission if it doesn't already have one.

    I'd really like a '51 or '52, I figured one day when I hot rod one I'll go that route. This one just spoke to me for some reason, had to get it.

    If you see it rolling around right now, it's my buddy driving it. Truck is a handful with one arm in a cast lol

    Good looking truck!

    My grandfather had a 55 mercury that I wanted but he gave it to my uncle who put it in a barn for 15 years, the barn fell on it then he traded it for a chainsaw if the guy would get it out himself.

    I never saw it again, still makes me mad.
