Details: There is one short video of this on Youtube. Type bad red 59 Chevy pickup for sale in the search bar to see it. For a free color sample ask. Send me a self addressed prepaid envelope I will include a painted piece of masking tape I used to mask off the truck when painting. So you will see the actual color. If you like this truck and the only thing stopping you from buying it is the manual transmission or the loud exhaust I will convert either after you buy it. I will install an automatic transmission with floor shift and/or put quiet mufflers on it if preferred. Thats not out of the question. This truck is a frame off Frankenstein creation of the best of old and new. Created by me. By taking two different trucks and a ton of cash for new parts to create one awesome creation that basically is a classic truck body with muscle car power. I documented every step of the build and have a folder full of receipts a paper telling what part numbers to get if something wears out (brake shoes fan belts etc) and a build paper I used to know what wires do what. This is gonna take a while so be prepared. First I buy two trucks from the same guy. a 1959 pickup and a 1989 C1500 pickup. Both 2WD. The 89 was a low mileage truck with only 87000 miles on it. It was hit in the rear. It had a 305 in it that I rid of and the 5 speed manual (NV3500) is currently in it now with a new clutch setup and new cylinders and lines. So I gut the 89 completely. Bed was junked. Pulled the motor and trans. Sold the motor. I cut off the frame of the 89 from the firewall forward. I do the same to the 59. Now the straight axle setup is gone. Welded the two together. So from the firewall back its a very solid 1959 frame. Firewall forward 1989. The rearend housing is also from the 1989. So when you need brake shoes front or rear you get them for a 1989 C1500. Bought a new GM Goodwrench 4 bolt main universal 350 motor and a Fitech fuel injection setup for fuel delivery. But dont fear. If you prefer carburators you unbolt the Fitech carb then put on your 4 barrel. Same intake. Currently Edelbrock Performer. Then from Old Air Products I bought an air conditioning setup. The manifolds were made into headers. At the end of each manifold is now a collector. Like a header. The complete exhaust front to back (except the manifolds) is 2.5 inch stainless steel. Including the glasspacks. It sounds and runs like a muscle car. Im actually afraid of going full throttle on it. The only stuff NOT NEW on this is the frame I created parts of the original bed and the cab. Literally everything else is. Starting rear forward: The tailgate is new. The stoppers were fabbed in to stop it from dropping too far. Like a newer truck. The walls and floor are not new. They are from another donor 89 C1500. The taillights are 64 Impala that I fabbed in the new rear fenders. The licence plate light is an LED strip inside the rear bumper that glows the plate when parking or headlights are turned on. Reverse lights are super bright LEDs also in the tops of the bed walls. The bed cover was made by me. Just a huge 4X8 plywood covered with outdoor material and hinged in half. The spare tire holder is custom made (again by me) by getting a Buick trunk cut out and I fabbed it under the bed floor. Room enough to hold a donut spare and jack related items also. Just flip the bed cover forward open the tailgate lift the diamond plate looking rubber liner open the secret door and there it is. Same as a hidden trunk area of a newer car. The bed floor is no longer wood. It is the metal floor I torched from a similar donor truck. As the original was hit. Next the cab. Cab is in excellent condition. Just a few dings that were straightened cab corners and the steps had pinholes so I replaced them. All bodywork was welded in. Not spot welded. I mean welded in. The doors and all glass are new. Door hardware new. Wiper everything including electric motor: new. Steering column is from a mid 90s Chevy van. Shaved the
