1953 Chevrolet Panel Truck

Owner: Jack Minton – Bizmarck, ND

1953 chevrolet panel truck

This panel was purchased by me about three years ago in Calgary, Alberta. It was a Police Paddy Wagon there in its previous life. I’ve added a Mustang II IFS, a Crate Ram Jet 350, 700R4 Transmission and a four bar coil over rear suspension with a 9″ Ford (Auburn Posi – 3:50) rear end. I also have a Lokar shifter and parking brake, an Ididit Steering column and Dakota Digital Guages. The seats came from a 1998 Blazer. I’m looking forward to installing my most recent purchase from Jim Carter, the headliner and arm rests, along with the rest of the upholstery, which I will fabricate.
