For Sale: 1942 Chevrolet 1-1/2 Ton Pickup in Missoula, Montana

Vehicle Description

Lifted Truck "Frankenstein"

The Story:
I spotted this truck on Craigslist some five years ago. It had a Cat v-8 and a ten-speed transmission. It ran well, so my buddy and I drove it around some and people were very impressed although it was "butt" ugly. 
So we thought how cool it would be to make it pretty and we began the teardown, We ended up replacing everything but the frame, and -- five years later -- the end result has been amazing with "Frankie" being the star of car shows and parades!

Frankenstein needs a few minor things to complete the build. The new owner can apply finishing and personal touches. And be ready to impress the crowds!
