In line with our recent "What are your dream trucks?" post, someone really wanted a '48 Chevy 3100 and was willing to pay $70,000 for a truck with patina paint.
The truck, a frame-off resto is equipped with a 572ci big-block crate engine from GM Performance Parts, Ride Tech airbagged suspension, and a Mexican blanket for an interior!! (I'm not kidding)
Someone must have fallen in love with that thing because for $70,000 I could build 3 of those old Chevy trucks and still had money left over for some nice paint.
Hopefully this is a litmus test for the custom truck scene and for our Nation's economic turnaround.
