Starting with an original BIG back glass truck found in Northern California, it was media blasted and any imperfections were fixed with metal. The gaps are matched perfect and sprayed with a gun metal silver paint. The bed is oak and finished with marine grade seal and all polished stainless hardware. Fuel cap is tucked neatly in the center. Front grill is hand made along with entire engine bay panels to hide all wires and hardware.
Chassis was fully rebuilt also, they ditched the front suspension for a Monte Carlo style for a better ride. Rear suspension is full custom TCI kit. It was then outfitted with CCI brakes, Chip Foose wheels, and wrapped in nitto tires.
LS3 engine has 6.2 liter displacement and around 525 HP. The automatic transmission is a 4L60E equipped with hand built shifter.
Interior is a work of art, the metal was coated with a satin red. While the seat and headliner are covered with a matching shade of red. Custom carpet and rugs finish the look. Classic Instruments built the gauges and Vintage Air took care of the heating and cooling. Modern stereo brings the music.
This truck is a true show piece and will stop you in your tracks.
