1959 Single SC Truck   Price: $50k/Auction
(this part will be changed on Sun 5/26 if not sold before)
I've owned this truck for approx 30 yrs off and on, using a 57 for some parts. I finally finished the truck the way I intended. It is totally stock except engine lid and some extra goodies. I built it for local use, shows, and swaps. . I am the responsible party for what this truck is, both plus and minus, and know it's complete history.
I am listing it here for sale until 5/26 and then it will be consigned to Mecum Auctions/Harrisburg held at the end of July.

Options until 5/26:
#1 Come see it, love it, and give me $50K (or more) know that your money is being donated to a grass roots charity that does a lot of good for humanity.
#2 Proper transfer of funds and arrange the shipping and still feel good about your donation.

after 5/26

Watch it or bid on it at Mecum Auctions Harrisburg, PA at the end of July. Sold! Sold! Sold! the $ still goes to charity less auction fees.

Talking points:
*Early 59 with birth cert. and extensive paper trail
*last of the hand crank aprons, w/ crank, nut, and shroud.
*factory bows w/ busware tilt and canopy
*NOS German tailgate
*NOS steering whl w/ micro age crack
*Door and kick panels by Clara
*57 eng lid (too cool not to use)
*dated crows feet rims(5)
*splitcase non sync tranny
*57 36 hp w/ 200 mi from the Bugshop/ Wytheville VA, new gen
*new starter, dual 6 volt batteries
*really nice single stage Dove Blue/Silver wht rims and bumpers/Dove grey hubcaps
* speedo completely rest'd w/ OG mileage setting and backed up on PA antique title
*all new brakes, shocks, king/link/center pins.
*new Coker red line 185r15
* rare real 100K St Christopher badge and working vintage compass included with Samba Sale and not at auction.

*Can I drive it home?
I would suggest seeing it before 5/26 and driving it here on country roads. This truck does everything it's supposed to up to about 55 mph. I would never take it on the freeway.
*Does everything work?
Absolutely everything except the RR light housing is come and go.
*Does it leak oil?
Yes, Some from the main seal
*Is there rust?
I can't find any except for some failure of 1990's treasure chest top coat.

I'll be flexible on showing the truck by appointment. I'm near Cumberland, MD and I-68. slightly closer to Pittsburgh(110 mi) than Balt/DC(140mi). I'm a nice guy but have no time for stories, dreamers, or crooks. Please just value the trucks history & don't tell me about how you plan to lower it down and power it up. Your $ are still good tho, and you might want to save the OG parts! Calls are Ok, but have an outline of your questions first. E mails will be answered if real. No texts.
Except for possible delivery to the Port of Baltimore, I have no knowledge of international shipping.
Neither the truck nor the title will be released until funds clear.
