Current customer rating:(2.25) based on 308 votes
I have for sale a one off 1957 custom built Hillman Husky Delivery. The unit sports a mildly built GM 350 w/2sp powerglide tranny w/ aftermarket manual shift valebody and reverse lockout. Handmasde custon headers and 3 inch stainless exhaust out rear of vehicle. Exhaust can be unhooked and off vehicle in 15 minutes by one person. Custom built aluminum radiator with 12 inch electric fan for cooling. MSD ignition system. Aluminum valve covers with chrome intake. waterpump cover and alternator. Front clip is a Mustang II coil suspension and backhalf is a 4 link narrowed Ford 9 inch differential with coils. 10 gallon fuel cell as well as battery in rear under floor. Very easily accessible. Professionally tubbed. It sports real Cragar SS mags that are in very good condition. No rust whatsoever. Frame is tubular and square that was very nicely done. Interior is also custom fabricated front to rear. It has an overhead console that contains an AM/FM/cd stereo. 2 6 inch speakers. 2 aircraft style dome lights and 2 interior cooling fans. Everything on overhead console works off of lighted heavy duty toggle switches with lock covers. Door panels. cargo area panels and tailgate panel are embossed with flames and tailgate panel is embossed at bottom with "HELL YEAH ITS FAST. " And it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This little unit is very light and extremely fast. Built originally for the drag strip. it's never seen one except. as a spectator. Because of its intended use it has a very wide turning radius. Front end was designed not to have much correction going down 1/4 mile. This is a very tight little car and turns heads at every cruise I've been to. I've only been able to find 2 more similar to it anywhere. And they were just pics on the internet. Have'nt seen another or heard of one in real life. The paint is very nice with a very high shine. There are very minor blemishes that you have to look hard to find. I do have about half quart of the original paint for touching up. It has some some detaled airbrush work on outside panels indicating it is a 57 Hillman Husky and beautiful pinstripes that match. All gauges and dials work as they should. This unit IS NOT a kiddie car! I do not recommend it for a younger driver whatsoever!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's very lightweight and VERY fast. This is a TRUE SREET ROD. in that it has no wipers. no AC and no HEAT. The windshield and rear gate window are plexiglas for lighter weight. THERE IS NO WARRANTY OR GUARANTEE EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED WITH THIS OFFER. ADVERTISED LOCALLY SO. I RESERVE THE RIGHT TO END THE AUCTION EARLY. PROVIDED AN ACCEPTIBLE OFFER IS PRESENTED. I will entertain a possible trade for a 20s. 30s or 40s sreetrod with AC of equal value.
