This Ebay listing has lots of pictures of a beautiful 49 Custom Pickup .... if I only print money like the US Treasury, I would be tempted to get this Sweet ride.

Nice truck. Lots of things I do like, and some things I don't. Took a few notes for ideas on my own truck.. Which I dragged home tonight after 3 years of sitting at my Granddad's shop.. Interesting that I'm thinking about Salt Flat Specials for mine. I like 'em on a C-Cab.

Suicide doors!

Only someone who has ever done that can appreciate how much work it was to get it right. That alone should add $5k to the value.

That is a beautiful truck!

As it stands now, it's within $1K of what Goliath brought on ebay, and worth more!

Big G. was a different breed of custom, as compared to this one... built to go, and tow, maybe more than to show... kinda simplier... not as nice, or fancy....

But, I sure miss having him around!

I 'spect this '49 won't make reserve, but it will be fun to watch!

I think it's about time Stude trucks start demanding the prices they deserve!

That really is a beautifully done truck. This one is much fancier than I would really want, but the modifications are nice. At first I looked at the purple flames and didn't like it, but I realized that the camera does not pick up the "pop" of the paint. In person the paint is probably stunning. Too many $$ for me anyway.

The auction closed at $18,099 and didn't meet reserve.

Dave, I would much rather have Goliath as well. I can't believe you let him go .... I hope he has a good home and his current owner is keeping him happy !
