A nice winter ride

Would this have a problem in the snow? Lol. Cool truck!

Re: A nice winter ride

I'd want some better tires for snow but other than that it would go in snow.

Re: A nice winter ride

It should have no issues even with those tires. Needs a snow plow on the front.

Your just jealous because you can't hear the voices!

Re: A nice winter ride

I kinda like it, mainly because it's a '55-56 Chevy cab and rear fenders. Would be fun to cruse to a truck show.

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Nice truck. I like it but for $60K think I'd like a 2020 model.

Cool to look at, but what the heck would you do with it?

No one here is saying the price is nice.

Cool truck..
I like the camera setup underneath, so you can see that Prius when you run it over.

That red truck is bad @$$.

Tighten it till it strips and back it off a quarter turn.

Re: A nice winter ride

One of my favorite pre 60 years and nicely done. A 2020 truck @ $60,000 wont get the looks, comments, or thumbs up this one does but no comparison in the ride. Bet some of the vets around the table here (God bless you) that have experienced riding on this type of military chassis can attest to that!
But very cool.

Not sure I'd want the exhaust blasting right onto whatever I have strapped to the back of it.

Im just happy its not “slammed to the ground” with big gaudy chrome rims and rubber band tires. Seen enough of that lately.
I like it, but its a huge toy, and not so much of a grocery grabber.

Plow snow, pull stumps, demolish old barns, flatten electric cars....

Should pay for itself in about 50 years.
