1972 Chevrolet  C50 Truck


• Approximately 30,000 miles since custom build
• 10 feet shorter than a stock C50
• Original interior in great shape
• 6,000 pounds of vintage pickup truck

350 cid V-8 engine, four-speed manual transmission with two-speed rear end, tandem axle dually rear suspension with leaf springs, front independent coil spring suspension, power drum brakes

Its either the biggest pickup youve ever seen, or one of the most compact C50s around but, either way, this totally customized C50 is highly unique and is also amazingly easy to drive. Worried about a payload in your pickup? Fear not, this unit will handle the heaviest loads! With a solid build quality and a massive payload capacity, youll never get stuck or wimp out on a job again.

The fabricator removed five feet of frame in front of, and five feet behind, the rear wheels. A stock width 8' Chevy truck bed was installed and sits atop the shortened original C50 frame rails. Power is provided by a strong, reliable 350 V-8, mated to a four-speed manual transmission with a two-speed rear end behind it for a total of eight forward gears, including an amazing low-end set for pulling or hauling. The dually rear end and front axle both wear excellent tires that give amazing grip. This custom runs and drives well and is totally sorted with no vibrations. The engine compartment is completely restored with the carb rebuilt, working manual choke, all new belts and hoses, and a new master cylinder. The rear end, wheel bearings and brakes also just received comprehensive service. The body and frame are rust-free, and everything on the truck looks absolutely fantastic and works, stops, and functions like new. The body has a nice thorough dark green paint job, with only minor issues apparent. They include some minor bodywork shrinkage and a few tiny bubbles on the bedsides. The interior is clean and original, with green vinyl seating surfaces and clean floors. The wood bed floor is brand new and completely redone just like the rest of this amazing truck.

This truck is a blast to drive and turns heads everywhere. If youve always wanted a sports car, buy something else. But if you long to one-up your pickup buddies, heres your chance - with a proven, reliable custom that they will find impossible to beat.
