WONDERFUL AUTOMOBILE COMES FROM THE DR. FORREST M. BIRD ESTATE.
MR. BIRD WAS AN AVIATOR, INVENTOR, AND BIOMEDICAL ENGINEER. HE IS BEST
KNOWN FOR HAVING CREATED SOME OF THE FIRST RELIABLE MASS PRODUCED
MECHANICAL VENTILATORS. HE MET ORVILLE WRIGHT AND HENRY FORD AMONG
OTHERS DURING IS AMAZING LIFE! HE WAS ALSO AWARDED SPECIAL MEDALS
FROM SEVERAL PRESIDENTS OVER THE YEARS INCLUDING GEORGE BUSH.

HE OWNED SEVERAL VINTAGE AIRPLANES AND ALSO AN ARRAY OF CLASSIC
AUTOMOBILES. ALL OF THESE ONE OF A KIND ITEMS WERE KEPT GARAGED AND
TAKEN CARE OF WITH WHITE GLOVE TREATMENT. HE HAD HIS OWN STABLE OF
MECHANICS WHO CARED FOR THESE ITEMS THROUGH THE YEARS.

IN ADDITION HE HAD SEVERAL OF THESE ITEMS DISPLAYED IN HIS MUSEUM WHICH
WAS HOUSED ON HIS 500 ACRE COMPOUND IN NORTHERN IDAHO!

MR BIRD WAS FEATURED DURING A SEGMENT OF 60 MINUTES AND THE EPISODE
CAN BE SEARCHED ON GOOGLE AND WATCHED. IT IS A WONDERFUL FEATURE
STORY ON HIS LIFE AND SHOULD NOT BE MISSED!

HE WAS A WONDERFUL MAN!!

HE TOOK CARE OF EVERYTHING AND NO EXPENSE WAS SPARED ON HIS CHERISHED
ITEMS!

HE HAD SOME OF THE MOST RARE ITEMS AND ONLY HAD THE FINEST!!

******************************************************************************************** WONDERFUL CLASSIC TRUCK HAS ONLY 6,539 ACTUAL MILES SINCE NEW! THE
CAR CAME OUT OF ST. MARIES, IDAHO WHERE MR. BIRD ACQUIRED IT! THERE IS A
LOGUE WHERE HE KEPT TRACK OF THE MILES. IN ADDITION THE TRUCK STILL HAS TWO
OF THE ORIGINAL TIRES STILL ON THE FRONT OF THE CAR. PLEASE SEE EBAY
PICTURES YOU CAN SEE TIRES IN THE ORIGINAL BROCHURE THAT MATCH THE TIRES
ON THE FRONT.

MILEAGE LOGUE INCLUDED TO NEW PURCHASER!!

ALSO A SET OF BRAND NEW WIDE WHITES FROM THE 50'S STILL WRAPPED IN THE
ORIGINAL PLASTIC GO WITH THE CAR. THEY WERE PURCHASED FROM SEARS AND
ROEBUCK IN THE 50'S.

THE CAR WAS ONLY DRIVEN IN THE LOCAL PARADES BUT CONTINUED TO HAVE
YEAR LONG MAINTENANCE.

MR. BIRD WAS ECCENTRIC IN MANY WAYS. HE HAD HIS CARS AND WOULD DO UNUSUAL
THINGS TO SOME OF THEM. HE DECIDED HE WANTED AN ENCLOSURE TO COVER THE
BACK OF HIS 1952 GMC. A $ 7,000.00 CUSTOM COVER WAS PURCHASED AND PUT ON THE
1952 GMC TRUCK. THE NEW OWNER IF HE WANTS CAN HAVE THAT REMOVED AND THEN
THE TRUCK WILL LOOK MORE ORIGINAL. THE TRUNK LOOKS AMAZING THROUGHOUT!

YES BEFORE I FORGET. YES THE ORIGINAL WOOD IS UNDER THE REAR BED TOPPER.
IT IS IN PERFECT CONDITION AND STILL HAS THE DULL BLACK FINISH IT HAD WHEN
IT LEFT THE FACTORY. FROM THE FACTORY THE WOOD WAS A SOUTHERN YELLOW PINE
IN WHICH THEY ADDED LINSEED OIL AND LAMPBLACK GIVING THE WOOD A DULL BLACK
COLOR. STILL IN PLACE ARE THE ORIGINAL 8 BOARDS MEASURING 85 3/4 INCHES IN
LENGTH.

IF YOU CHOOSE TO REMOVE THE CUSTOM BED TOPPER BELOW ARE THE ORIGINAL 1953
BEAUTIFUL WOOD BEDDING INTACT AND IN PERFECT CONDITION!

THE TRUCK WAS CONVERTED TO 12 VOLTS TO MAKE EASIER STARTING.

IN THE FRONT OF THE TRUCK CONNECTED UNDERNEATH IS A BAR WHICH WAS USED
ONE TIME TO PULL THROUGH A PARADE. THAT CAN BE REMOVED WITH 2 BOLTS IF
THE NEW OWNER SO WISHES. IT CAN BE REMOVED AND IT DID NOT DAMAGE
ANYTHING INCLUDING THE BUMPER! AGAIN A LITTLE ECCENTRIC.

OF COURSE OUT HERE IN THE GOOD OLE PACIFIC NORTHWEST WE HAVE HAD NOTHING
BUT RAIN FOR WEEKS. IT HAS BEEN HARD TO GET THAT PERFECT DAY FOR PICTURES.
THE CAR IS STUNNING INSIDE AND OUT. THE DARK DREARY DAYS DO NOT HELP ON THE
PICTURE SIDE. I TRIED MY BEST TO SHOW HOW WONDERFUL THIS CAR REALLY IS.

THE PAINT IS FLAWLESS STRAIGHT AS AN ARROW.

BEAUTIFUL CHROME THROUGHOUT!

THIS IS A NO RUST WHATSOEVER TRUCK!! ALWAYS GARAGED!! SOLID AS A ROCK!!

THE INTERIOR IS IN BEAUTIFUL CONDITION INCLUDING THE DOOR PANELS, HEADLINER,
FLOORING, UPHOLSTERY, DASH, GLOVEBOX AND LINER, ETC. HAS A BEAUTIFUL DASH AND
STEERING WHEEL AS WELL. ALL THE GAUGES SPARKLE AND WORK AS NEW.

BEHIND THE SEAT AND UNDER THE FACTORY MAT SOLID AS A ROCK!

YOU GET TO THE BATTERY UNDER THE PASSENGERS FEET AREA. STILL HAS THE FACTORY
COVER AND STILL LOCKS INTO PLACE!!

THE HORN EVEN WORKS AND THE RADIO! BLINKERS AS WELL!!

THE TRUCK STARTS RIGHT UP AND DRIVES JUST AS IT DID WHEN IT LEFT THE FACTORY IN
1953. THE ENGINE PURRS AND THE TRANSMISSION WORKS AS ITS SUPPOSE TO. AGAIN
ALL THE FACTORY GAUGES ETC WORK . THE HEADLIGHTS WORK GREAT AND TAILLIGHTS.

THE EMERGENCY BRAKE WORKS AS NEW!!

THE DOORS SHUT EFFORTLESSLY. VERY SOLID TIGHT TRUCK!!

EVEN HAS THE PERFECT OLD TRUCK SMELL THAT THE TRUE COLLECTOR CAN UNDERSTAND!

AGAIN NOT A SPECK OF RUST!!

THE UNDERSIDE IS AS CLEAN AS THE REST OF THE TRUCK. ON MY BACK TRIED TO TAKE
PICTURES BEST I COULD. HOPEFULLY YOU GET AN IDEA IT IS WONDERFUL BELOW THE
TRUCK ALSO!!

HAS THE FACTORY SPARE STILL INTACT UNDER THE TRUCK. I WOULD VENTURE TO GUESS
IT HAS NEVER TOUCHED THE GROUND!!
