235 C.I. Straight 6 engine
3-speed heavy-duty gearbox
Equipped with optional heater
Local car-show award winner
This truck, chassis # J53N023080 is equipped with a replacement 1957 Thriftmaster 235 CI engine and three-speed heavy duty transmission. It was lovingly restored in Ohio in 2016 as a personal project. The heart and soul of the restorer can be seen in the painstaking efforts that went into refinishing the wooden inlays in the bed, as well as the liberal use of high quality stainless steel hardware throughout. Deviations from stock are few, but include replacing the dangerous split rims with modern wheels, an alternator instead of a generator, an aluminum radiator for modern traffic, and a much more comfortable interior. The underside is immaculate, and the truck is so impressive in person. GM Cape Maroon seems to be the inspiration for the paint color, though the fine metallic gives a slightly warmer feel.
