We are presenting this very nice custom 53 Chevy pick up. The build was completed in 2005. The truck was a dream of the owner and his wife. They commissioned Mastercraft Body Works in Ovilla, Texas to make that dream come true. They chose Mastercraft because it is a family owned business and still is today. The drivers seat is showing a bit of wear, but is still in very good condition. The American Autowire wiring harness is a 22 circuit. There have been 23,663 miles logged on this truck since the build. The truck was a driver and is still in very good condition. The Vintage Air is working.
The 327 Chevy engine is a 1972 and was totally rebuilt before dropping it into the well prepared engine compartment. The truck sits low to the ground with the help of front end GM 2" drop Spindles and GM rear with 2" blocks. The bed had been spray coated top and bottom. You can see after all of these years it is still in very good condition. The undercarriage still looks great. There is one little flaw in this wheel. This can easily be repaired by a wheel shop. Some of the few flaws in the paint are these scratches and a bit of bubbling on the hood.
It's hard to see, but there is a small dent just over the passenger side headlight. Here are some of the many photos of the truck before and during restoration. The S-10 frame. The passenger side fender has a small crack along the seam where the fender was attached to the bed. We have a notebook full of all the info on the build. Please give us a call for more information.
