RARE 5-WINDOW, CORVETTE LT1 POWER, R134 AC, TOP QUALITY BUILD, VERY GOOD BUY!
Beneath the curvaceous lines of this classic pickup lies the heart of a Corvette. That's right...You thought you were just looking at a beautifully restored 1953 Chevrolet 1300 5-window truck, but under the hood is 365 hp LT1 power.
This is a truck that has more to offer the more you look at it. From a distance it looks like a rare and desirable 5-window classic pickup with simmering two-tone paintwork. Then you get closer, and you start to notice the intricate pinstriping on the hood and around the cab. There's even custom artwork on the rarely seen side-mounted spare tire. Then as you start looking at details, you'll notice the exceptional condition of the brightwork. This tall truck has a huge silver streak, with pieces like its wraparound bumpers, and legendary five-bar grille that stand out like a pristine art deco skyscraper. The better-than-new classic appearance even extends to the wood truck bed, where the lumber and chrome have been rehabbed to make this blue collar hero look like it never saw a day of work. All of this combines to give the impression of a custom hot rod, and the clincher for this attitude comes from the Eagle wheels.
Inside is more of the hot rod treatment, but with a premium twist. It starts with the red and black leather seating with a matching bow tie headliner. In between the driver and passenger is a center console with the very welcomed addition of cup holders. The driver gets a grippy sports steering wheel with enough brightwork to fit in with the rest of the dash panel. Beyond that is a full set of Dolphin gauges by that look clearer than the originals without losing the nice vintage touch. The same goes for the AM/FM/cassette radio sitting in the original knob-style fitting. But the best interior upgrade has to be the modern air conditioning system that was discreetly tucked under the instrument panel to keep you cool as you cruise the town.
The engine bay proudly displays the 365 hp LT1 fuel-injected V8 motor donated by a 1996 Corvette. Reliable and powerful, it's the right combination for a vehicle that's intended to be driven. However, that doesn't mean it isn't also beautiful, with chrome valve covers, billet accessory drive, and plenty of bright plumbing. Plus, the firewall and inner fenders have been smoothed and finished to the same high standards as the rest of the body. So this truck is designed to be both shown and driven. You can see that in the other details, too. For example, take a look at the undercarriage photos where you'll see the dual exhaust has been given heat insulation under the cab, and this pickup has also been upgraded to a much more comfortable independent front suspension. Add to this a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires at each corner, and you've got the recipe for a powerful custom build that feels great on the road.
You're looking at a classic pickup that makes a ferocious sound from a modern V8 motor. Plus, on the inside you're just as comfortable as a modern truck. It's the best of all worlds in Chevy that's sure to take home the trophies. Don't miss out on a unique vintage package. Call today!!!
