This is a ONE OWNER truck. Bill Girton, a brilliant mechanical engineer for Boeing and later Coors Brewing Co., bought this truck new in 1954 and did the entire restoration himself, one nut and bolt at a time. Unfortunately, Bill recently past at the age 95 and his poor widow Joan now has to sell his masterpiece. This is the cleanest truck I’ve ever seen and needs to go to a good home. Every detail has been thoroughly thought out and executed to perfection. All engine compartment wiring is hidden, custom handmade headers and air cleaner, perfect leather interior and high performance everything.
The engine was built by Chuck Ball, of Ball Aerospace & Technologies here in Colorado. 402ci putting out over 620 horses! Bill wrote down everything and all of what he did to this one of a kind truck, and has tons of receipts, history and documentation, including the original bill of sale, as you will see in the pics. This is a rare opportunity to own a perfect restomod, that has only ever had one mans hands on it. This needs to be appreciated and go to the right buyer.
