*Personally signed by: Dale Earnhardt Jr.

Vehicle Grade:
There is no industry standard for grading. Several are used to decide vehicle condition. This truck has never been professionally graded.

Using the the 100 point grading system someone may consider this truck an 80 or "fine" ....but not excellent...not perfect.
On the often used "1 thru 6" scale I would say it's a very good 3.
(1 being show quality and 6 being a parts car)
History:
Frame-off restoration in 2011, When I got the truck it had rust issues in the usual places. It was disassembled sandblasted. Rusted areas were cut out and replaced with correct stamped pieces from LMC Truck.
Replaced both sides floor pans, rocker panels, cab mounts, replaced lower portion of original doors, new ball joints, wheel bearings, clutch and related parts, radiator, hoses, belts, harmonic balancer, converted to electronic ignition, new spark plugs, wires, valve cover gasket, installed new cab floor sound insulation, rubber floor mat, new door and window gaskets/seals, tailgate chain/hardware, seat cover, four matching new tires, four new shocks and front end alignment. New paint job #1.
Functional horn, cab light, headlights, parking and brake lights, turn signals, back-up lights, tag light, dimmer light for gauges, high-beam "Bright" indicator, cigarette lighter, 2 speed wiper/windshield washer, speedometer and after market water temp gauge.
Photo gallery shows exterior, interior as well as front and rear suspension.
ENGINE: Original 250 six cylinder - has not been rebuilt
TRANSMISSION: Original 3 speed manual on column
BRAKES: Original drum brakes function as they should

ELECTRICAL: New wire harness for rear lights but everything else is original wiring/fuse box. New headlamps.
GLASS: New Safe-Lite windshield, original rear window and door glass.

BED WOOD: 2014 Installed beautiful new OAK bed wood kit. It has since become sun faded. I decided to let the new owner decide whether to refinish or paint. Underneath truck the oak wood is still glossy. (see photo)
Note: These trucks came from the factory with bed wood painted black.
2018 Recent work: Replaced both doors, and better vent windows.
(I wasn't happy with the results of repair job on original doors, but they are included with truck)
Just completed paint job #2 this time to include engine bay. Replaced stainless body trim molding. Flushed radiator added fresh coolant.
Included with truck: New firewall pad, various body and engine decals, original doors. Documentation of media event with Dale Jr. Underneath photos show original exhaust pipe!
Note: As BEAUTIFUL as this truck is...it is not perfect.
*Dale story related to this truck:
Tallahassee Florida: I attended a private Media event on Thursday January 30, 2014 at Dale Jr. Chevrolet Dealership. After my radio interview with Dale I asked if he would check out my truck and sign it...he, of course, was more than happy to.
Dale Earnhardt Jr. opened the door of this truck and signed the glove box. His entourage (assistant, photographer and Dale's sister) took 3 photos of him signing. (photo reveals paint scheme of the old door prior to my swapping doors) After looking it over...while Dale was walking away gave me a "thumbs-up" and said "nice truck!"
Three weeks later February 23, 2014 he WON the Daytona 500 driving for Hendrick Motorsports - his second Daytona 500 victory breaking a 55-race winless streak.
No other truck on ebay has a story like that! Own it! You too will be getting thumbs up everywhere you go!
