SOLD!  1963 Crew Cab, Turkis!

1963 Crew Cab, Turkis, Clean Driver!

This is a clean and presentable 1963 Double Cab Pickup Truck that is perfect for cruising and using.  It is respectable but not a diamond so it is an excellent example to relax and enjoy.

It features an attractive and shiny recent respray in L380 Turkis (German name for Turquoise), an upgraded 1600cc dual port engine, 12 volt conversion, new radial tires, safari windows, a custom built stereo system, and it is ready for some fun.  The owner's young children love taking it out for a spin and have already voiced their displeasure with their Dad that he is letting it go.

The body is good overall, not great, but looks nice for a daily drivable nearly 47 year old Commercial work truck.  It is generally straight, the gates are fair to good with the normal issues you expect to see including some rust in the bottoms, some corrosion around the hinges, and normal dents and dings from use.  They function well and don't require any immediate attention.  The bed is extremely solid, above average condition, but shows normal signs of use from its years.  Both bumpers are the correct early slash cut units and are very nice.  The body is straight and solid although the front floor corners have been previously patched and the rear cargo floor has been replaced with a flat sheet of steel.  There are some signs of patches and skims of filler down along the bottoms of the rockers as well.  The jackpoints are all clean and solid although I did notice some normal perforation on one outrigger that will eventually need replacement if the Truck is restored at some point in the distant future.  It ought to look nice for some time to come but there are some things that will eventually need to be refinished to a higher standard to make this Crew Cab spectacular.

The interior is clean, complete, and features nice and correct grey pressboard paneling, the original seats feature new cloth centers stitched up to the original commercial grey side and lower sections of upholstery.  The dash is clean and nice, uncut and has a custom in-dash stereo unit in the factory radio hole.  A clean and custom roof mounted speaker box/bow was built to provide modern sounds in the Truck without altering the original look of the interior.  Very comfortable, functional, and still maintaining that stock early 1960's Commercial Truck feel.

Mechanically this Crew Cab is very nice and regularly enjoyed.  It features a great running 1600cc dual port engine with a new stock carb, Bosch 009 distributor, an alternator, and a stock Bus exhaust system.  The correct 15 inch Bus wheels are in great shape and sport near new slightly oversized radial tires which make the ride very comfortable.  The electrical system has been upgraded to 12 volts for added reliability, brighter lights, and to power the modern sound system. 

This is a clean early Crew Cab that is priced according to its condition.  It is ready to enjoy and will certainly get lots of looks and compliments as it has for the current owner for the years that he has had it.
