For Sale at Auction: 1945 Chevrolet Custom in Scottsdale, Arizona

Auction Vehicle  

Vehicle Description

This 1945 Chevy truck is truly a one-off custom with a full custom-engineered, pro-built chassis, 4-wheel cross-drilled and slotted power disc brakes, RideTech triangulated 4-link rear suspension and Mustang II front suspension with RideTech Shockwaves on all four corners. Power is supplied by a 5.7-liter 8-cylinder Corvette LT1 engine backed by a 4L60E automatic transmission and a Ford 9-inch rear end with 3:80 gears. Exhaust is run through ceramic coated headers and 2.5-inch coated exhaust with stainless tips. The Foose/MHT wheels are a 20x12 in the rear and a 19x9.5 up front with Pirelli P-Zero tires on all four corners. The extensive body modifications include a 3-inch chop, suicide doors and shaved door handles with electric poppers. The bed has been shortened 5 inches and moved forward 1-1/2-inches, and the front rail has been contoured to match the back of the cab. The rear fenders are 2 inches wider than stock and the smooth running boards were designed to match. The front fenders were modified by welding and smoothing all the seams, molding the headlights to the fenders and shaving the parking lights. The body was then meticulously smoothed in preparation for the Kodiak Brown paint. The bed floor was finished with African Zebra hardwoods, then pinstriping and gold leafing were added from the tailgate through the center of bed floor, the console and finishing on top of the engine cover. The interior consists of modified bucket seats with Saddle leather upholstery, color-matched seatbelts and German square-weave carpet. The custom dash is fitted with Dakota Digital gauges and a custom console was designed to house the RideTech control system, power window switches and the Vintage Air controls. The truck has primarily been shown regionally and has been driven just over 1,100 miles since its completion. Awards include a pick for Goodguys Truck of the year finalist in 2015, an Eagle One Award of Excellence in 2015 and a Darryl Starbird Fine Nine Award in 2017.
