Technical specifications, photos and description:
1953 marmon. the chassis (rear end. transfer case. transmission. engine. frame. front end. etc) are all 100% original to the truck. this was purchased on the pine ridge indian reservation in the early 80's. this has an almost perfect 1954 body with the original grille from a 53. the body is close to perfect. it had a rust out spot between the driver's door and fender. this was professionally repaired.
here are the problems: the right front axle was broken. I had a machine shop fabricate a stub and it is currently installed to make a perfectly drivable truck. it needs a windshield and side window. it also needs a steering column. (I have located one out a 53 f-250 in cody that I will get if needed).
this has all the body work done and is close to being able to paint.
I have the original wheels that go with it. I also have the spare. this makes a total of 5 original wheels that go with it. it also has the original rear wheel spacers that are almost impossible to find. these are split rim.
the engine is the original 53 flathead that was in it. the block was boiled and checked for cracks. the crankshaft was ground 10 under and have new pistons. the motor will have to be honed. otherwise all the engine parts. including a couple of carbs are all included. also have a new gasket kit and bearings for the engine.
the frame is in excellent condition.
the body had about 63. 00 miles on it when it was purchased in eastern south Dakota and the original marmon had under 17. 00 miles when the axle was broken (not a misprint)
I have all the trim. inside and outside and the original marmon 4 wheel drive metal plaque that goes on the dash.
TO ANSWER A FEW QUESTIONS THAT I GOT: I had a question as to why I did not have more photos. the reason is I have two big block engines in front. as well a 1935 dodge truck and two motorcycles. as well as a barber chair. etc. stuffed into my garage. those of you who are married can now see the problem. I will be more than happy to move anything that needs to be moved to take photos of any area that is requested. it has the original spare tire carrier. the front of the box that is usually mashed is perfect. again. it may have been a mistake to put a 54 body on a 53 truck. but the body was close to perfect. actually the 53 body had almost no dents. but had more rust that I did not wanted to deal with. I have the door handles. the bench seat is in very good condition structurally. but needs a new cover put on it. the floor pans had absolutely no rust on them. yes. all of the split rim wheels are original to the truck. the brakes are all new. as well as the master cylinder. the wheel cylinders have also had kits put in them. if a steering column is needed. I have access to one and it will be at no additional cost. the entire body and box were removed. the frame was cleaned and painted and put new cab mounts kits in it when it was put back together. I also have the original paint codes for the wheels. body. and grille. the body was Sheridan Blue. thanks and please feel free to ask any additional questions.
the bed is close to perfect and does not have all the rust and dents that most of these have. the main reason I bought this body. is that the bed was close to perfect.
I have made a pine bed for it. but oak was original and probably should be made of oak.
it needs completely rewired. all the gauges are there. including the original speedometer with the correct mileage showing.
it kinds of pains me to sell this. but I am in the process od restoring 2 other cars and 2 motorcycles and something has to give. please feel free to e-mail or call at 307-899-0776 with any questions. thanks. I will add revisions to this listing as questions are asked.
this has a clean south Dakota title and can be inspected at any time in cody. Wyoming. additional photos of specific areas will be provided. call and I will send additional photos. as this site does not allow use of the dreaded e-word. thanks.
whoops. forgot to respond to the other question: these are actually f-250 running boards. not the 1/2 ton ones that are normally added onto.
