Protip: If you’re an LSU fan who’s been eyeing the Tigers themed 1954 Dodge truck above on Craigslist, do yourself a favor and buy the damn thing on eBay for $20,000 less.
Apparently the owner of the truck is asking for $25K on CL, but recently created an eBay auction that starts at just $5K. No bids have been placed with four days remaining, so you’re probably golden if you really want this thing for the upcoming season.
1954 Dodge Pickup Truck Official LSU Football staff collector, Live purple love gold. Just imagine tailgating at Death Valley or riding down St Charles Street in a Mardi gras parade. I paid an official body shop with a paint booth $7000 to completely restore with everlasting polyurethane purple and gold exterior of this collector picking up truck 5 years ago. The original wooden bed has rotted out, so Zigler replaced the bottom with metal. It has been parked under a carport since then. Your job will be to finish restoring the interior in all leather. Ole Betsy runs like Billy Cannon on Halloween Night with the slant 6 cylinder. She purrs like a tiger and drives like a champion. Betsy gets excellent gas mileage because she was raised before pollution control and she runs on regular gas. She has a slight leak in her gas tank. Her right rear hub has a wobble in it. Betsy does not have a windshield wiper motor or blades. Other than that, you will be a very rare proud owner.
Rotted bed, an interior that needs to be restored, “slight” gas leak, etc… you might want to ask for additional photos/information before taking the plunge.
