  • 1955 Chevy truck - Custom built crew cab car hauler!

    I am putting this up for a friend of mine - here is what he sent me. Please respond to him at [email protected]

    "This is a one-of-a-kind 1955 Chevy Truck, built as a car hauler. It has a
    hand-made 4 door crew cab, probably the only one of its kind. I bought
    it for a failed family car business from a car collector in New York.
    He used it to haul his hot rod collection coast-to-coast. It has a
    tilt, hydraulic box as well as a trailer hitch, and a sleeper behind
    the cab. It was custom built in California. It has a rebuilt Chevy 454 Big
    Block taht runs strong. I have also rebuilt the radiator system, and added a new fuel
    pump. The transmission is a four speed with bull low, and a two speed
    rear. G license is all that is needed to drive this truck (its a 5 ton).

    It has a new clutch and new brakes all around. The roof top air
    conditioner needs rebuilding. Twin fuel tanks under the running boards
    and fuel tank about 200 US gallon capacity. Needs two new front
    tires, and a one worn king-pin. Truck has an electric 2 speed rear

    For car collectors, it is a completely self contained unit with
    water tanks and hoses, an air compressor with tanks. It is wired for a
    generator,and one of the saddle storage compartments is setup for one, but
    there is currently not one in it.

    All of the storage bins are in excellent condition with lights inside. There are
    interior and exterior body lights. It has a 9000 lb. winch (works perfectly), as well
    as multiple tie down points for inside for securing vehicles. We have drive this truck
    with a 5000lb vehicle in the rear, and could barely tell it was there.

    If you are a serious car collector going to shows with cars, this is the ultimate centerpiece.
    I have driven it with a 5000lbvehicle in the back without a problem - you barely know its there.

    Cab is very clean, and sits five people comfortably with plenty of
    room all around. The sleeper can hold two people, it has a pass
    through from the rear of the cab. Tilt hydraulics work well, but the
    rear roll-up door needs replacement.

    Measurements: From the floor to the floor bed 50 inches high. From the
    floor to the top of the box 126 inches high. The ramps are 9 feet
    long. overall length 32 feet 6 inches. inside dimensions of box 17
    foot 3 inches long. 89 inches wide and 78 inches high.

    $12.5K uncertified, $15K certified. Truck is located
    just outside Toronto, in Milton. If bought certified, can deliver it to a nearby boarder crossing.

    I have many more pics of the vehicle."
