    This is a truck built by Gas Monkey Garage on Fast n Loud on the shows for "Road to Chopper Live". They built this truck in a two part series in December of 2012.

    Truck was rebuilt from the ground up and lowered by flipping the axels. Has small oil leak from the pan and rear end seal. All mechanically sound, runs fantastic. Has the original 235 straight 6, 3 speed transmission, all rebuilt. Currently has 550 miles on it.

    I can provide additional pictures as needed as well as additional information. I have all receipts of work by myself and the previous owner.


    EDIT: I am motivated to sell, so I am lowering the asking price to $18,000. If no one is interested, I am going to pull the add and start some upgrades.

    What does flipping the axles do?

    Look nice, BTW.

    There's 2 ways of mounting leaf springs, over the axle or under the axle. Given the same springs, over will be X inches (thickness of the axle tube and spring mount) taller than under.

    Ahhh....that makes much more sense. I was thinking front to rear, not above or under leaf springs, flipping over the axle so the mount points are on bottom instead of top. Thanks...see, I am learnable.....;)

    My grandfather had a '59, but in that butt ugly green color. Nice ride, good luck with the sale.

    Does this one still have the starter button on the floor?
