Oh my that is delightful.
Lovely plus,I'd only dump the wood tail gate for a Ford one I think if it was my own. Cool 5 star.
Price - askin' and gettin' are two different things.
Offer him what you can afford - you might be supersized that may be the only offer he gets.
The ocean tide goes in and out - maybe he'll take the clams when he sees them.
Dayuum That's Really Cool...My fingers are crossed for you @J.Ukrop The Tires are scary weathered but Time Capsule pristine....Thanks for sharing that Gem of a Hotrod...
I like it but being 6'4" I wouldn't fit. HRP
It was amazing until the tailgate
"It was amazing until the tailgate"..........and the ribbed bumper.
That's cool. Not exactly what I'd build today, but as a vintage hot rod it sizzles with cool.
Hey - it is what it is for that time. A neat time piece.
At least it didn't have a set of Longhorns on top of the radiator grille.
It's quirky, but I like it. Not sure about the dummy spots... Interesting that it has aluminum heads in one picture.
Neat pickup that survived, but as a side note, its not a 32 pickup, its a 33 pickup with a 32 grille shell. The firewall, bed and looks like the frame is all 33
Nicely done pick up. Some things I don't care for but hey it isn't mine and I don't have a spare $27k laying around right now.
Hmm. chrome frame. I might want to do that.....whadda think it'll cost me???
Definitely a period piece. And while I think it looks cool, this interior must get hotter 'n' heck anytime the temp gets over 60°s.
Pretty period perfect little hauler! Looks like it's held up surprisingly well, Time to ask the boss for That raise. One question, can you haul your bike in the back?! Do you fit in it? Make an offer, you might get surprised.
I think the ol' Triumph would fit, but I don't think I would. At 6' 3", I have to be pretty careful about chopped and channeled closed cars. I did make a call about a channeled Model A RPU yesterday though!
Man that's neato! I love old hot rods!
Tailgate doesnt do it for me. Otherswise what a neat time piece and decent price
I cant believe that the tailgate is original to the build. The rest of the truck is very nice but the tailgate and tail lights look like they were just stuck on.
Whoever buys it better double jointed, or not much over 4ft tall and weigh in at less than 80lbs. You could always covert it to a hand throttle and brakes, add a 13" steering wheel and take up yoga...
Beauty! That is one nice looking rig.
I saw it advertised and at first thought, Hell yeah! a real old hot rod! But then you start to think, if it's mine do I change it by removing the things I don't like, but then it starts to lose the "survivor hot rod" element. To spend that kind of cash on it you'd better really like it as it is. That's a big chunk just to take it home and change everything.
