For Sale at Auction: 1948 Chevrolet Pickup in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

Decoliner is the result of over 10 years and 10,000 hours of extensive build time invested into a multiple-award-winning "rolling piece of art" show truck. The truck began as a humble 3-ton delivery box truck and pays homage to the golden age of automobile styling, creating a striking silhouette that sets it apart from everything else on the road. The one-off look was created with aluminum and composite materials, with 1,000 hours spent on the fenders alone. Decoliner seamlessly incorporates a large hidden storage compartment for luggage or golf clubs with a fifth wheel hitch for towing. The frame is a highly engineered custom show-condition aluminum tandem axle chassis manufactured by renowned builder Dale Gerry Street Rods. The factory steel GM cab was stretched, and two additional original Chevrolet doors were carefully installed by hand. Other exterior features include a 1957 Chevrolet front bumper and American Racing Torq Thrust wheels for the classic look. It is powered by a GM crate 502ci Ram Jet V8 engine backed with a Gearstar Performance 4L80E overdrive automatic transmission. A Duramax radiator with electric fans keeps the engine cool. The massive engine is supported by a Dale Gerry front cross member with independent suspension, a custom aluminum Ford 9-inch housing and Dutchman axles in the rear. The custom truck rides on computer controlled fully adjustable air-ride suspension with Alden shocks. The cab features a custom Italian red leather Lee Baxter interior and a custom Chrysler Windsor "Astro Dome" dash with Dakota Digital gauges. It is equipped with Vintage Air climate control and has a custom audio system by Andres Car Audio. With extensive use of billet and one-off parts and amazing attention to detail throughout, the truck not only stands out in a crowd but is extremely reliable, and was driven from Canada to California. ** PREVIEW
