I am listing w/ no reserve a 1953 Chevrolet 1/2 ton short box 5 window pickup (4 speed trans). I have a clear Wyoming title in my name. It has no ignition key so I hot wired a 6 volt battery and it started right up off a gas can. It sounded real strong, no knocks or strange noises. The fuel tank needs flushed or replaced. The curved glass plus rear window is fine, all other glass is broken or cracked. Rubber gaskets are bad (most rubber of course is bad on truck). The pass door glass is off track and broke but shown in my last picture. The bed needs a wood kit of course.

I have installed a new rear bumper w/ repainted original brackets. I have brand new smoothie running boards but they are only mocked up in picture. You need to realign the driver side frame brackets, weld new mount brackets to bottom of new boards, then paint and install. They will come shrink wrapped inside the cab of truck. The cab has rot: both cab corners are gone, the entire side cowl areas where front fenders bolt on are rusty and need major work. The driver fender is barely hanging onto the cab, pass one is almost as bad. Someone pop riveted metal panels onto the inside kick panels, so I assume rust thru under these. Floor on pass side has a big patch on it. Cab has a long vertical dent below gas cap, you can get to this from backside to pound out and pull w/ stud gun. Pass door got hit but it DID NOT affect the inside panel. This can be suction cupped w/ a combo of prying from inside coupled w/ studs welded on outside. I feel the door can be saved, but used doors are common on Ebay and Craigslist.

I also put on NEW HEADLIGHT BEZELS. Last pic also shows 3rd hubcap and new rear fender support brackets. The cab is itself is nice w/ no dents on roof or on rear of cab, driver door is dent free too. It has deluxe heater and radio block off plate. The battery cover is missing the locking rods. Seat springs in good shape but need recovered naturally. All glass interior moldings in place, including headliner bows. Dome light is missing the glass lens. The rear fenders have some rust holes where running boards bolt on. Pass rear has some tears of course but can be welded. Truck has a day night mirror which is nice. The front splash pan is missing license plate bracket.

All in all a great truck to either restore or rat rod. Is in Encampment Wyoming 82325 for transport. No brakes and not running (it does run but cant move onto transport). Buyer to pay $500 via paypal the night the auction ends. Rest is Bank Transfer or via Paypal if you pay my fees, they have gotten so high and I need you to cover them or do bank transfer of balance.
