You’ve no doubt heard of Gas Monkey Garage. The Richard Rawlings owned hot rod shop is based out of Dallas, Texas. They create some great hot rods and customs while the builds are documented for their Discovery Channel television show. While most of their projects feature shiny paint and tons of chrome, they’ve also created some awesome patina rides. There are a few for sale right now on their website, but only one is a fully-built project. Let’s check out a few of these rides and if you’re interested you can find their current inventory here on GasMonkey.com.
This awesome 1964 Dodge D100 truck was built several seasons ago on the show. If memory serves, I think Richard was in need of an office remodel and traded this truck as part of the payment for the job. It features original patina that has been clear-coated. Under the hood lies a modern drivetrain including a 5.3 liter LS engine bolted up to a 4L60E electronic transmission. The chassis also includes the fuel cell under the bed, custom exhaust, and Ford 8.8 rear end with airbags. The front suspension comes from Ford as well in the form of a Crown Victoria subframe with power steering. The truck rides on custom TSW wheels and Toyo tires. Unfortunately, there is no asking price listed, but you can bet it is deep in five-figures (or more). You can read more and see a ton of photos of it here on the Gas Monkey website.
This crusty 1964 Studebaker Commander Wagonaire is a full-blown project car but already has a great look. It supposedly spent decades outdoors in the desert southwest and the asking price is $. The Wagonaire has a sliding roof, which is a really cool feature on a car of this vintage. The interior is pretty rough but could serve as a guide for an upholstery job. Unfortunately, the hood latch is non-operational, so there is no information in the ad regarding the state of the engine/transmission. I’m guessing it is a straight-6 but maybe the new owner will get lucky and it will be a V8. You can see 100 detailed photos of the car here.
UPDATE: It appears this one sold already! The asking price was just shy of $6,000.
This is a 1959 Chevrolet Apache short wheelbase, fleetside that looks like a fun project. The engine is believed to be the original 6 cylinder with a 3-speed transmission. You can see more of this truck here on the G.M. website.
