I bought this truck 7 years ago and the thing that interested me so much is the additional leg room I have due to the fact that I am 6'6" tall . Someone that is 7' tall can drive this truck in comfort. It's amazing how much room you gain by adding the 6"s to the cab. The seat is a bench from a '92 chevy pickup. Very comfortable.
When I purchased it I got the chassis and the cab with the modifications done and the front end was bolted on. Took about 4 years to finish.
This truck is very much a crowd pleaser at shows.
The truck has no air ride system. The way it sits is where you ride.
I also have a visor painted red that has not been installed but comes with the truck.
Have four '56 trucks. Time to thin the fleet a little. Getting ready for retire.
Four additional information please phone Dave Henry at 805 705-4924.
