1955 Chevrolet Other Pickups
Up for auction here is a very good running and driving 1955 Chevrolet Pickup First Series. The truck was restored 20 years ago and still looks good to this day. It was built for cruising and it does so effortlessly. The powertrain is very reliable and is something different than all the V8 swapped trucks that you see everywhere. This one has a 292 inline 6 that has some very tasteful modifications done to it. It was first bored out to a 301 and then was fitted with a small cam to give it even a bit more boost in power. An Hei distributor was installed to get away from the unreliable points. It also has a Clifford intake with a 4 barrel Edelbrock carb, along with Fenton split manifolds and dual exhaust. It has plenty of power to cruise down the road with and sounds just like a V8 at idle. The exhaust has a very nice tone to it while not being too loud going down the road. The transmission is a 350 turbo and it works flawlessly. The front suspension has been replaced with a Mustang II kit that has rack and pinion steering and disc brakes. The rear has leaf packs and a 10 bolt posi with highway friendly gears. You can cruise down the interstate all day long and it doesn't skip a beat. The exterior of the truck is very solid and the paint still looks good. There have been a couple chips here and there that have been touched up so it's not perfect but still very presentable. Everything opens and closes as it should and the box has a snap on cover to keep all your stuff dry when you run into rain. The interior is pretty basic and mostly original. It does have a newer GM tilt column and air conditioning. There was also a cd player installed under the seat and shoulder seat belts. The dome light works when the doors open and there were also extra ones placed under the dash for more light at night. Everything works on the interior as it should including the gauges and the electric windshield wiper kit. The ac blows cold and the heat blows hot. All the glass and rubber is in excellent shape. The odometer reads 1800 miles but it has turned over once. It had almost 80,000 miles on it at the time of the restoration so it has proven miles on it that its a driver. Overall its just a great running and driving truck that doesn't need a thing except a new owner. If you have any questions feel free to contact me on here or give Jon a call at 515-249-6167, thanks.
