Description for Chevrolet Other 1954

First I want to make it clear, his panel truck is painted bronze, ears ago...it's not all surface rusty. Although, here is some surface rust, inor rust through and general patina.
The painted signage on the sides say Garrison Van Lines inc. the Golden Coach Service. Birmingham, la. on the drivers and passenger door, t says something like: I.C.C.M.S. 60787. A.R.S.C (I don't know what any of that means.). On the windshield, here is a Redstone Arsenal entry sticker. If you are a NASA geek, ou can imagine John Glenn riding in this thing during his Astronaut training prior to launching in Friendship 7.
It has had the brakes gone through and has a power booster to drum brakes...it stops. It has had the excessively cobbled up wiring gone through and has working lights, auges, tc. The wiring works but honestly it's still too spliced. There is a new fuel tank and sending unit from Jim Carter's in it ($400). There's a low mile 4 bolt main 350 with an edelbrock carb in it with headers and dual quiet exhaust. It has late model chevy 8 lug rims on it. In other words, t runs and drives, tarts and stops...the clutch is good and tight and the engine runs beautifully.
I am personally at a crossroads. I will be moving. This project is also at a crossroads...does it stay a Patina mobile or does it get fully and beautifully restored...that is up to you...the buyer.
Now, little more detail. This panel comes with 3 of the 4 original split rims, driver quality stainless grill in pretty decent shape, n extra hood and an extra (original) drivers fender. The reason I didn't take a picture of the inside is because all of that stuff is stacked in there. Also, believe all the floor access panels are good and the bed floor wood is good.
It also comes with what I believe are the original front seats (they need complete restoration) but they are rare, are, are. Again, believe they are original.
Generally, his is a pretty straight panel truck. To be fully roadworthy all it needs is a new wiring harness and a weekend of your time to put it in... That's the patina option. Wiring and clear coat...done.
To be pretty darn nice, here's some body work...this is not a complete list. But, decent overview:The passenger side roof has some small dents that are accessible for a light hammer and dolly.The running boards have some dents.The passenger rear fender has some dents, he fenders are easily removable to access dents.The rear doors have dents and old bondo that is chipping.There are areas of some rust through and they all look accessible and fixable. Et cetera, t's 60 years old and never restored.
Done nice, hese 1 tons pull giant money. I am pricing it to sell.
