One thing that the crew at Volo Auto Museum understands is that context is everything. They have gone the extra mile to display each movie car with memorabilia and signage that brings the scene to life. The museum features actual movie props such as Tom Cruise's racing seat from Days Of Thunder.


Classic Car Overview

$38k OBO. 

Update: I added a remote mount battery terminal to make it easier to charge the battery or if you ever had to jump start it. I have the bare panels for the headliner and rear bulkhead that need to be covered and modified to fit the chop top. I was planning on putting in the carpet but recently broke my ankle so… 

The wife wanted me to entertain the idea of getting a different classic with more seats to fit our kids. I am open to trade up or down (with cash) but specifically looking for something that could fit 5 people. Truck fires and runs perfect. Trans shifts smooth and the rear end is perfect. Engine work was done by HB Hotrods & Hogs. I can supply receipts if requested. Body and frame work done by Tinman's Garage in Chicago. I am not interested in obtaining a vin report from your fraudulent website nor am I interested in accepting wire transfers or non-verifiable personal checks. I will accept a cashiers check or I am more than willing to go to the bank with you and watch the transaction take place (preferred method). I do not need help selling my vehicle. I own it outright and have the pink slip in hand. It is a clean title and not a salvage. Here is a breakdown of what this truck is -
