Incredible body off frame, documented custom build.

Only 760 miles since a meticulous body off frame custom build was completed. We have a pile of receipts. It cost far more than what are asking just to restore it. I personally drove this one home, it performs like a new truck. It has plenty of upgrades that make it comfortable, reliable and perform awesome. Not to mention it is drop dead gorgeous. If you can find a way to collect $1 every time someone says the color is gorgeous, you would have this truck paid for in no time!

EXTERIOR: Professionally restored body by Doug Krashner of South Carolina. It was stripped down to a shell. All metal, no rust. Painted an absolutely gorgeous color- PPG Deep Atlantic blue metallic with a pearl clear coat. It was polished to a smooth, glossy finish. Up front it has a custom grill that has been chromed. New chrome bumper, lenses, and upgraded Halogen headlights. On each side the emblems, marker lights, door handles and bow tie mirrors were replaced. Even the wiper arms are polished.
