Description

Starting this creation with its rounded fenders, under the door running boards, bulbous hood and wide blacked out horizontal ribbed grille, this truck remains true to its roots as a worker bee. Round single headlights with chrome bezels are fronting the front rounded fenders and just a few scratches are keeping it from being perfect. The simple gently curved front bumper frames the bottom and on the front of the hood is a near perfect Chevrolet badge. The hood backs up to a split window front glass, and round side view chromed mirrors on long stalks jut outward from the fronts of each straight rust-free steel door that swing like safe doors, very smoothly with well minded gaps. Just a little bit of paint chip off is seen on the seams but mostly unremarkable considering the remainder of the body work and paint condition.
Shiny handles are within this tastefully bumpy textural field and look just dandy. Inside, shiny red oversized bucket seats are in the front. These float in a bulletproof sea of rubber flooring, so you won't fret when your muddy boots mess it up. Upfront a large black and taupe bakelite steering wheel with 3 spokes in the middle fronts a perfectly restored dash which is painted in tan. In front of the driver are 2 original gauges, one for the speedometer and the other has a cluster of quarter round black faced and white lettered gauges for fuel, battery, oil pressure and water temp. As we scan across the dash plenty of horizontal ribbed embellishments with a peppering of chromed and black bakelite knobs and pulls. Above is the correct radio delete plate. In front of the passenger, the ribbing continues as a covering for the glovebox.
Under the hood resides some mechanical jewelry in the form of an inline 216.5ci 6-cylinder engine. There is a 1-barrel carb attached and covered with a black oil bath style air cleaner assembly and a blue painted valve covering runs the length and tops a blue painted engine block. Bolted to the back of this mill is a 4-speed manual transmission which sends the power to the rear tires via a 5.14 geared rear axle.
