That's right. That's what the guy said in his ad. "Very close to done." Don't be one of these guys when you sell a car.
Well it looks like it is finished to me ;~)
I think mine's a little closer than his.
That's a nice old Dodge, Steve! I had a 51 Chevy p/u in College with similar patina. Loved that thing.
yup it is shorrre done and did all right
"Very close to done" is a frame of mind. I believe it's at the bottom of the often occurring failure to communicate with my spouse. When I say it's "very lose to done" it could mean several months more work. She thinks that means today and in time for us to go to an afternoon matinee at that!
wow at least steve got tires
"Close to done for" would be better discribtion.
I drove my dads old 70 chevy pickup to the cruise in last week and a fellow came up and said he had a couple 69's for sale.Started showing me pictures.The first 1,showed a shortbed stepside took completly apart."this 1 is ready to sandblast and prime"!
Sheesh.A pile of parts!
Your '52 and my '53 have the exact same "patina" on the green paint! Mine has the "streamlined" rear fenders and the corner cab windows.
Great truck! (I don't have a pic, or I'd post it!).
from looks alone your pickup appears to be done. Like totally. I have a similar one, a '71 Dodge Stepside that looks much older, in about the same condition. It looks exactly like an old pickup should look, and it will serve me well for as long as I live. I do not plan to ever buy a new car again in my lifetime.
Daniel, if indeed its pretty close to done; I'd tell the seller, "Alright, you have it running, licensed, and inspected tomorrow, and I'll give you your asking price.
One mans 'very close to done' may be another mans 'done for to begin with!'
This is one of those cases.
Just buy another complete running PU for parts. Then you're "done". :-)
