Default '59 Chevy pickup - long chassis

It jumped onto my trailer and just wouldn't get off, honest !!!



This one came down from Oregon, so it has more rust in the corners than the '56 cab. The guy bought it to restore and then found a better one from Californee that he is restoring for his daughter. He had already rebuilt the front end and the rear, with new e-brake cable and some other things. Stole the 235 for his other truck, and the 4 speed, but this cab has the pedals and steering column and a little nicer dash, though the usual idiot holes from a crummy radio install.



Originally a Fleetside long bed with three on the tree, but converted to a 4 spd, and that's fine by me since it isn't going to be a restoration. Not sure just what it will be, but lots of good parts for $300.

Just what kind of skull-duggery would you propose? I am open to suggestions.

Yup! I use the Search and put in low dollar amounts and year limits. I think my Saved Search is 1920-1980 (only because I love '70s Chevy trucks) and Min. $20 (to weed out the no price or $1 idiots) up to $1500. Sure makes it easier finding not only things I might want, but can afford! Done buying for now, so you can have the 1957 CJ5 and some others I've seen.

Got it off the trailer today and into the back yard. I had started to finesse it, letting it roll a little at a time, then decided to let 'er fly. After all, there is a railroad tie which will certainly stop it. Well, it didn't! Bounced over it and stopped short of the block wall, thankfully.

Nope, that was all there was, and no title either. Just have to find someone that doesn't want an arm and a leg (and possibly a testicle!) for the parts. They are around, just greed mongers so far. Besides, I think I will go with the earlier front end parts. Not really into the dual headlights. I saw a GMC years ago that had the coolest grille for these trucks. Maybe get lucky there too!

Haha. Well yeah. Shipping something like that would be a major undertaking, and would have to be insured and all that. I found a hood for $200, doors about the same for each. Can almost buy a complete truck for what the asking prices add up to, but what fun is that ???
