Car description

I am selling this truck for a friend who recently suffered a stroke. It has been hid daily-driver for a very long time. He loves this truck and has put a lot of time, work and money into it. It runs and drives very well, good brakes, strong drive train, The lights, wipers, heater, turn-signals etc...all work. It is the highly-desirable Deluxe Cab Big Window model. The turn signals do not self-cancel and the wiper blade is missing from the passenger's side. but they do work. The truck comes with a full set of the ultra-rare 19.5 inch wheels in addition to the wheels and new tires that are currently on it. I am including a letter he wrote about the history of the truck. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them before bidding. I will be happy to answer them and I value my 100% Positive Feedback Rating. Thank you for looking.
Story of Mater a 1955 Chevy Napco 4X4 truck.
Mater was bought in Washington, sent to Canada to a Napco Jobber to get 4X4 unit installed. From there on to Alaska on the highway job for 6 years as a supervisortruck spending most of the time in a highway barn. Mater was purchased at the auction in Alaska and driven by the purchaser until i was finally able to buy Mater. It took a lotof visits with the owner, some drinks and many pots of coffee to persuade the sale. I have owned Mater for 12 years and have only needed to add 2 quarts of oil in the motor. Regular oil changes and good oil. At the time of a Napco install apparently there were options. One of which was a GVW change. Mater was upgraded to 1 ton capacity. This included 19.5 tires and wheels, clearancelights on top of cab and of course axles and suspension. As well as new chrome designation a metal visor or bill was fitted above and outside the windshield. Apparently this bill is fit for a 1955 second series truck. The purpose is to eliminate clearancelight glare onto the cab and obstructing driver night vision. Nothing to do as a sun shade. Because of the bill it is not possibleto see overhead traffic signals if first or second in line at a traffic light. A Guide Mfg. Co. prisim traffic light viewer was installed on the dash in the truck. By adjusting the viewer one looks normal straight ahead at the dash through the viewer to see upward for condition of the traffic light. On the dash, in the center is a chrome rack device which used to be in restaurant/cafe booths. These held the sugar,mustard, ketchup co tainers as well as the Juke box selector. Records were selected by pushing the buttons and placing .25 cents in the slot. Usually 3 records for a quarter. This rack makes for a nice catch-all on maters dash. The right storage box located on the running board is a milk box. They were found on the front porch of houses. The milk man would place full bottles of milk in after removing the empty ones. The lids on the boxes were slopped to keep the shoes and cats off Mater has plenty of power to pull a boat or Jeep on the highway and handles nicely loaded or unloaded makinga nice daily driver for me. I will miss mater.
