Cool Classics: 9 Classic Chevrolet Trucks Reach 6 Figures

Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.


Classic Car Overview

A good friend of mine who is a custom Jeep builder and promoter, put this amazing setup together.  He was planning to use it to drive around at shows from camp to camp, but realized a golf cart would be the better fit.  He acquired The Jeep in trade from a US military veteran who had it shipped with him from his base camp in China. The man was injured and sent home.  He had requested The Jeep be sent with him. This is an all American made military Jeep from US base camp in China sent to the States.   The milage is thought to be somewhere between 50-60K before the rebuild.  Engine runs and fires excellent.  He never ended up driving it and sold direct to me from the shop in 2017.

NOTE: In the pictures I had just sprayed the Jeep down with a hose to get the dust off things.  There is nothing spilt on the bumpers or back.  Just water.

Here is a list of all the add-ons, repairs and customization that was done by my friend:

1.Complete overhaul of electrical system with complete replacement of old wire harness and wires
2. New starter, distributer, and components
3. New Motor and transmission mounts
4. BDS 4” complete suspension System
5. 5500 series shocks all around
6. Front Sway Bar Link Kit
7. Front and Rear Heavy Duty 1 3/8 shackles
8. Ruffstuff Springover kit
9. Extended steel brake lines
10. Complete new wheel bearings and wheel seals
11. New switches, panel parts, solenoid, and knobs
12. Complete Rugged Ridge replacement steering
13. Heavy Duty Steering Link
14. New Leaf Spring Plates
15. New HD U-Joint Shaft Sleeves
16. New Warn locking Hubs
17. New Ignition Coil
18. New Fuel Pump
19. New Custom Drive Shafts
20. New Tires - 35" BF Goodrich (5)
21. New Wheels (5)
22. New Bikini Top (Bestop)
23. New Full Top (Bestop)
24. New Soft Doors (Bestop)
25. Line-X Premium throughout entire Jeep
26. New Mastercraft front Seats
27. New 4-point harnesses
28. New Mastercraft front seat brackets
29. Rockhard 4x4 Custom Roll Cage components for additional safety
30. New Replacement CJ accessories and parts (i.e. hood mounts, hinges, etc.)
31. New Battery
32. New Tuffy Locking center console

33. Added a matching Tire and wheel

34. Wiring for the rear hitch

35. Rear Tire Mount with custom welding to hold the weight

36. Fenders added and installed

37. Spider front and rear custom built bumpers. (Spider crafted the setup as a "thank you" for using their products on their other builds.)

Since I've owned it:

1. New ignition 

2. Custom fabricated back tire hold capable of the 35" tire weight

3. Full tightening of all nuts/bolts throughout

I've only put about 500miles on The Jeep since I've owned it and it has never been off road.  It has only been driven around town at the beach and I've had a lot of fun doing it.  Time for someone to own The Jeep that will truly utilize and enjoy its potential.  This machine is the ultimate "Wild Ride".
