53 buick pickup


Recommended Posts

had a 53 buick body that the roof was pushed sideways badly. after not happy with soaking, decided to cut roof off and make a truck of it. used the 66 ford pickup roof.  originally i had seen a step side bed on it from a picture i had of one.  tried different beds, but kinda liked the fleetside look.  ended up using a 57 chevy pickup interior and chassis

No you're talking. A high line brand like Buick deserves a classy full dress bed, pre dating the Cameo. Very cool idea.

Just out of curiosity, where did you get the ‘53 Buick Road Master body or was it a kit? That’s the first car my father owned when we came to Canada in 1960. Dark Green on the roof and light green on the body. I loved the waterfall grill and tons of chrome on the car.

Good start! 👍 Nice job on the roof, and the fleetside does look best.😎

Exactly what he said!
