Re: Post your 60-66 craigslist finds

I thought for sure there was an extra zero in this price accidentally. Nope, dude wants $55K. SERIOUSLY delusional.

This is a rebuilt now rust free California restomod.
▪ The original 231 motor was replaced long ago and now is powered by a JEGS new 350 crate motor at 260 plus horsepower with a 750 cfm Edlebrock carburetor with high rise Edlebrock manifold.
▪ New paint in turquoise blue original Chevrolet color. Grandpa's farm truck has original look with two tone paint, off white bumpers, top with matching wheels, including the California side mirrors. All wheels, tires, drum brakes, shocks are new with original standard steering. The swing down tail gate with hidden stainless steel spring loaded latches, front fenders, hood panels, door steel replacement panels, front bed panel, and cab quarter panels/corner body assemblies are all new steel. Interior floor panels/support structure where needed were replaced with OEM metal. This is a rust free truck garaged since restored in 2015. When truck was painted it was done in pieces, totally disassembled so that paint wraps panels.
▪ Wood bed is custom which includes 1/2 inch treated plywood underlayment on rust oleum coated frame (hammer finish) followed by 1/8" oak plywood, finished with 1/2" oak boards. Each board is finished by hand in oak or mahogany stain installed in alternating colors then hand finished with teak oil.
▪ New windshield with original side glass having replaced both window lifts with new including new door hardware as OEM with new felts and window gaskets where needed.
▪ Utility box is made from original bed oak from 1966.
▪ Truck interior is finished in the off white which matches the off white of the truck exterior with piping and carpet matching the main color turquoise truck exterior. Check out the back of the front seat finished in matching turquoise floor carpeting.
▪ New Flowmaster style side exhaust with sweet thrush sounds allow for joyful cruising. A new Retro sound system was added to provide the original look with modern sound.
▪ New custom parking brake system allows for secure parking.
▪ JEGS automatic floor shifter adorns the fresh transmission rebuild.
▪ Notice the 1966 Year of Manufacture original plates from a 1966 Chevrolet Pickup when you come to see this beauty. These are the original stamped plates issued in 1966 not a remanufacture black and yellow plates.
▪ Asking $55,000 and will consider offers. Cash only. Face to face.

Everybody has to believe in something. I believe I'll have another beer.
