Chevrolet Other Pickups 1949 Description

Here is my 1949 Chevy 5 window pickup with a rebuilt V-8 Chevy 350cid engine and a rebuilt TH350 automatic transmission sitting on an S-10 frame with air bags, ll new brakes and bushings. The interior has been restored as well. It runs, rives, tarts, nd stops like new, ecause it is mostly new and rebuilt. Great driver, ooks cool with lots of exterior patina, 6 years of aging to create the truck before you.
This is a very well built hot rod, ot the average, un of the mill car that was purchased as a kit and bolted together. This is a one of a kind original. Simple, et elegant. The outside was done naturally. Blue/Green/Rust...with some of the original pinstripe still visible. A welded spot here and there, nd dents, es it has those too.
Some say Rat Rod, ome Hot Rod, treet Rod, etro Rod...more of a GoodFella's Rod than a GoodGuy's Rod. Looks pretty stock, ld and worn on the outside. But underneath is a really good truck.
Drives Great, orners well. Like riding on a cushion of air. All the lights and gauges work, xcept the original temperature gauge is non-operational and an indicator light has been installed (the original bulb was too short). The Amp gauge is not operational and a charging light has been installed.

Custom wood bed floor from a local saw mill made to fit so it has almost all of the original bed space. I wanted to be sure to keep as much of the original bed area as possible for use as a pickup. Haul whatever you want.
When the truck is all the way down it is about 1 inch from the pavement. It still rolls without touching anything when all the way down. So, f you have perfectly flat roads you can drive with it all the way down. The idea was to build a truck that looks mostly stock at first look. Then you look closer and see the glass door knob shifter on a shorty chrome shift stick. The air ride suspension system insures you get the ride height you want while looking quite respectable.
We have driven it over 2000 miles since the build and everything works as it should. I have the title in hand in my name.
