There are those stories seemingly too good to be true. Like the one behind this vehicle. Hard to imagine, but this pickup – from 1933! - has only had two owners in its history. It changed hands only once, in 1957 when the first owner died. And it spent the next 59 years in the possession of a man by the name of James Sullivan. Sullivan died in 2016 and the vehicle has remained in the estate's name ever since.

The truck was repainted once in the early 1960s and the seats were redone at the same time. Everything else is in perfect working order. Unfortunately, no sale price was posted, but you can be sure any successfully buyer will have to pony up a hefty sum given the rarity of the piece.

The 1955 to 1957 Task Force Series models are much in demand on the classic-car market and their popularity shows no sign of waning, despite the passage of time (or maybe even because of it). Definitely, we’re dealing with a true “classic” vehicle here, and buyers shouldn’t expect to find one at a bargain price.

This edition has undergone a complete restoration and was being offered at a price that reflects the market trend. And to think that it sold new for $1,670 at the time.

Asking price: $30,000.
