Looks like a reasonable price for a running complete truck in California

That does look like a reasonable price, and the badging (emblems) on the hood do appear to be 1955 1st Series. I sure would like to see some pictures under the hood of the engine though.

Thanks for sharing.

Yes, 1955st hood side emblem.

". . . Runs and all original equipment. . . "

Not an original gauge under the dash.
Not the original side-view mirror on driver's side door?

And, it must have a very rare "original equipment" 8 cylinder engine?

Not enough helpful photos.

Hard to judge the price - no photos/info on the engine and no photos of standard rust-out areas.

Good catch Tim. For all we know, there may be eight blind mice in hamster wheels under the hood. Any serious offers would require many more pictures of the engine and the normal rust out areas as well.
