It was on CL and got some discussion here not long ago. Ilya talked to the guy about it, and talked to Chuck. IIRC Chuck suspects something amiss in the front axle from the way it sits. Maybe one or the other of them will share that conversation. Stu

Notice there are no pictures of the undercarriage or the front axle....

Also it has a bed from a 53-56 truck.

Looks like the owner still haven't sold it from the CL ad. From speaking with Chuck, the truck has at least one broken front axle. It's not a huge detriment, but would cost some $$ to fix/replace. A suitable axle would have to be modified to fit. Based on our discussion, the offer for the truck should be less than $1500. I calculated the gas and time to get this truck, plus time to clean it and get it ready for resale to be a deal breaker. Plus, I'd have to find a 51-52 bed for it. I have a friend who has one, but it'll be another $600-700 for the bed. IMO, not worth it for me isnce my plan was to flip it. It would be worthwhile, however, if I was to restore it.

Instead, I used the same money to buy some great sheet metal and another Panel truck that I can turn a lot quicker.
