I bought this truck when I was 17, my first vehicle. It already had a 1953 235 in it, which I rebuilt. (An old timer who came over just told me it was from a Powerglide and a great engine). Then I put a canvas top and a pot bellied stove and traveled in it as a Gipsy for a few years (last photo), and put a 2 speed vacuum rear end on it out in Tucson, which helped in the Rockies. Took the overload springs off at that time (still have them, never hauled anything heavy enough). Put 6K miles on it since rebuild, then it's been sitting inside my warehouse for the last 35+ years. Body in very good shape I would say, a little rust at the bottom of the doors as usual, and floorboards a bit funky. Has a dent in one fender, and i can't find the seat back yet. Solid rust free running boards. Kids threw rocks thru my warehouse window and broke the windshield glass, rear window, and one door window. All flat glass anyway, so easy to replace. I was going to restore it this year, and bought a nice 6V battery which I have kept well charged, and just tried cranking it today and it turned over no problem, not locked up. I replaced all the broken lenses for the cab, headlights, etc. Tires miraculously have held air all these years, and have good tread left. Also have 4 extra rear wheels and tires I am going to sell. Drove into where she sits 35 years ago. Think this would be a very nice restoration project for someone. In Atlanta, Georgia. $5,600 OBO

Nice truck. Just an FYI, Electroglide is a model of Harley. I think you mean Powerglide.
