To many vehicle buyers, trucks are designed for utility. They're used to tow trailers, haul heavy loads, and traverse rough trails. As a result, they often get dented, scratched, used up and disposed of at the end of their service lives. This is why it's exciting to see a classic pickup truck in beautiful condition, especially when it has been kept that way by the same owner for several decades

The 1955 Chevy pickup seen here is owned by Fred Ramirez, of Huntington Beach, California. Fred has owned this truck for a staggering 40 years, and bought it for only $250 just after he graduated from high school.

Fred tells us he considered buying a new truck every few years, but just couldn't bring himself to sell this '55, so he has never let it go. He drives it every day — in his own words, "it has the dings and rock chips to prove it". We'll admit we couldn't find any during our photoshoot, but when you daily-drive a vehicle for four decades, you get to know every last imperfection.
