1947 Studebaker M5 PU Street Rod description

Truck was built off frame in California in 2008. I purchased it in 2013 from a dealer in the Seattle area. The dealer gave me copies of the original owner's receipts showing the cost of the build out. I also have a hard folder of pictures showing the build out process. I'm selling it because the poor thing just sits in my back yard with an old weatherproof cover over it. Luckily for it, I'm in Scottsdale, AZ where there is no humidity and very little rain! I start it up approx once a month to keep the gas system clean. I occasionally drive it around the block. The 327 short block engine runs great ! It's equipped with chrome and aluminum attachments. All the tires are brand new, including the Mickey Thompson 29x15.5-15's on the rear. The original owner installed slam it airbags to raise and lower the body, but I had them replaced with heavy duty springs and shocks. (My own body could not stand the bounce caused by the air bags.) This vehicle deserves someone who can drive and take care of it better and more often than I. There are a few needed fix-ups as indicated below. I am not an experienced antique street rod owner or mechanic. In order for a quick sale, I have priced it $7,000. less than I have paid.
