Please visit for additional photos, information, and a video. This vehicle is available for viewing by appointment only. Please call us to schedule an appointment.
Check out this fully restored and documented Square Body pickup! This beauty has just 4,041 since a restoration that included the body, paint, interior, brakes, steering, suspension, and complete drivetrain.
The exterior is gorgeous in House of Kolors Lapis Blue, which looks blue in some light, purple in others, and has just the right amount of metal flake that dances in the sun. A pinstripe breaks up the body nicely and a tonneau cover has been added to keep the bed clean and dry. The bed has a spray in bedliner so it is very usable! Ridler wheels give this truck a modern look along with a cowl hood. All the glass throughout the truck is new as well.
The inside is ready to show as well with a black and gray color scheme. The interior features a vinyl and cloth bench seat, modern AM/FM radio, Dakota Digital gauges that light up blue to match the truck! Vintage Air A/C has also been added to make this truck enjoyable all year round.
Under the cowl hood is a rebuilt 350 engine that has been bored to a 355 CID V8 with a Stage II performance cam from Comp Cams, SpeedPro flat top hypereutectic pistons, Moly rings, an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, aluminum Assault intake, HEI distributor, full-length headers running to dual exhaust, and an aluminum radiator to keep it all cool. Possibly the coolest part about this truck is that the 355 is backed by a Muncie M21 4-speed transmission! You don't see that every day! Power steering and power disc brakes always make driving more enjoyable. This truck made the 2 hour round trip from the seller's home to our showroom twice in the last few days at highway speeds with no issues. It is built right!
The original owner's manual and RPO sticker are in the glovebox and the truck comes with a stack of documentation from the build. You will have a hard time finding a cleaner short bed square body, and there is no way you could build a truck this nice for this kind of money!
