    Be on the Lookout!!! for this 1955 Chevy Stepside!!!!

    September 16th, 2010 between the hours of 1PM-3PM from the Haysville, KS area this 55 Chevy pickup was stolen. The truck is bright red with ivory bumpers, chrome wheels, oak bed, black & ivory leather interior. Had a tag (probably removed) that read DADZ55. We are told it is more than likely being taking out of state so please spread the word to EVERYONE. We need your help to recover it, it has huge sentimental value to Don the owner.

    Here are a few details that would make any car/truck buff recognize the truck. The hood ornament is actually from a Pontiac (chrome), if it has not been removed this would be a dead giveaway. The interior is black & ivory leather, tuck & roll with a custom v shape right in the center. There is a radio box under the dash and the dash itself has an open hole in it for a missing knob. Inside the window wells, if you really look with the window down you can see some green paint. The truck was originally green and when they painted it, they did not get this area covered well. There is a crack in the glass… passenger side in the vent window. There is a scratch on the drivers side above the rear fender. Spare tire has chrome wheels just like the ones all the way around. Because the fenders are not original 55 Chevy fenders there is also an indentation near the parking lights. The truck bed is oak, the bumpers have the bumper guards which you don’t always see. It has a 6 cylinder engine… it is pretty much original under the hood. No carpet in side. The case# is 10s009654 and was filed through Sedgwick County Sheriff’s department. If you or anyone spot the truck please call the police AND us immediately!

    Contact Info in the Gallery, more pictures to come.

    Keep your eye's peeled for this truck.. Ebay, Craigslist, Car Shows and Cruises...

    the last nice one that was stolen (panel delivery) was all sanded down to make it look like a project truck..a HAMBer (cant remember his name right off hand) busted them, and they got caught..( like 5 or 6 heading south if you catch my drift?, on their side of the border,, they dont care whats brought in, our people dont check whats going back in)

    I bet this wasnt the first time this was done..or this MO tried.

    keep your eyes out for a truck just like this..but is made to look in worse shape with things missing and paint in not so nice looking condition

    sorry 'bout your loss..happy hunting
