1955 Chevrolet Custom Pickup The mid 50s pickups have always been a popular classic and this 55 takes it up another notch with some really cool features and a great style. Trucks like this are what makes custom classics so fun. It has some really unique features that you just arent going to see anywhere us. Original stock classics definitely have a place in our heart but there is nothing more fun then cruising around in a truck like this knowing it is the only one like it. The body on the truck is incredibly straight and the Flat Black paint looks great. A lot of people see flat colors and think project or rat rod but we assure you that is not the case here. The paint is a 2 stage black with a Satin clear coat and was extremely well done with the perfect touches pinstriping throughout. It may be hard to see in some of our pictures but in addition to the Red and White pinstriping, Gloss Black was used creating a very cool contrast. The tailgate was beautifully done with a graphic all old hot rodders better be able to identify, the Von Dutch flying eye. It was all hand painted and is framed in custom engine turned gold leaf. If we could steal it off the truck and hang it on our wall here at the shop we would because it is that cool. All of the chrome on the pickup including the front grill and bumpers have a great shine and finish. Up front the bumper was flipped and tucked giving it a slightly different look compared to other 55s. All of the emblems have been shaved off for a nice smooth exterior. Custom Cadillac taillights have been added in the rear and work perfectly with the overall look. Another very cool feature is the relocated gas tank which now uses a larger flip style cap on the rear fender kind of like what you would see on a Shelby Cobra. Those are the type of subtle customizations that really make this truck stand out. The truck looks incredibly tough rolling down the road and it has a slight rake for the perfect stance to make it look just as tough sitting still. It rolls around on smoothie style wheels that have been painted Black and fitted with baby moon hubcaps and wide white wall tires. Under the hood the truck is just as show ready as the rest with everything being finished out nicely. It is powered by a 350 V8 motor that has been fitted with a custom painted Cadillac air cleaner, finned valve covers, Edelbrock manifold, Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor, MSD distributor, MSD wires, AC Delco alternator, Optima red top battery and aluminum radiator. It is paired with an Turbo 350 automatic transmission that moves through the gear with ease. The body is mounted on a 1985 C10 chassis with the C10 suspension so it has been upgraded with front disc brakes and an IFS front suspension. An E-Z chassis swap kit was used that included all new cab mounts and a firewall plate for relocating the power brake booster and master cylinder. The interior is very nicely done as well with nice Black carpet, Black Procar low back bucket seats and two tone Red/Black door panels. The panels are done in a tuck and roll style and feature an additional storage pocket, chrome door handles, chrome window controls and arm rests. The dash is accented with nice pinstriping as well as Shark white faced gauges and very cool custom knobs which are always a good conversation starter. The underdash AC system blows cold with no issues. In front of the driver is a tilt column topped off with a 1940 Ford steering wheel. This pickup is packed with vintage hot rodding style and really stands out next to other 55 pickups. The look combined with a nice ride make it a great truck for new classic car hobbyist and life long collectors alike. Start cruising in this classic pickup loaded with custom features for $43,500.00!
