One Of My Holy Grails Found!

Recommended Posts

I've been looking for a 1955-1957 GMC conversion for a while. I've searched eBay off and on for a couple of years and tonight I found one at a good price and jumped on it. I can't tell much from the picture but decided to take a chance. Here's a screen cap.

I think he's selling multiples of it. The last one I found went for twice the price, so I'm happy.

Just now I realized I need to buy another '55 Chevy truck. I forgot I built the last one a while back.

Did anybody follow through and buy one of these conversion kits? If so, what is the quality like? I know this is an old thread - kinda surprised there is no feedback on the item..

Sorry for the lack of follow through. I got the parts and then set them aside, then promptly forgot where I put them. Anyway, here they are. Not too bad, but it looks like they will need some clean-up. The dash in particular is pretty rough. I'm thinking they are a repop of the original which is pretty much unobtainable. It's one of those things I bought to build later.
