THE NUANCES OF GRAY

Fully sorted and ready to roll, this polished pickup is the beneficiary of a detailed, ground-up build that mixes head-turning poise with proven athleticism. A heavy dose of tempered charm comes courtesy of Selenite Gray Metallic Axalta ChromaBase two-stage. And today, this custom rolls as a unique yet enduring classic that celebrates the very best of America's indelible car culture! The truck's monochromatic profile kicks off with a polished bumper, which guards a stylized '57 3100 grille that's centered between stainless-trimmed headlights and massaged parking lamps. A long hood, relieved of its flashy header crest, fronts a filled cowl. A chip-free greenhouse, shaved of both its drip rails and stainless, caps fully shaved doors. Shaved fenders lead a spectacular bed that's finished with screw-free skid strips and glossy wood planks. In traditional hot rod fashion, those slick planks raise to reveal a hidden fuel filler. And out back, a familiar Chevrolet tailgate centers bold banner lettering between sleeved chains, capped rails and a custom roll pan that's dotted with flashy taillights.

BIG BLOCK POWER

Pop the hood and you'll find 498 cubic inches of big block Chevy stroker that's been freshly rebuilt by the folks at Mooresville, North Carolina's ProMotor Engines. At the top of that massive mill, a polished Chevrolet air cleaner dumps oxygen through a big Holley 4-barrel that's married to braided fuel lines and a spry electric choke. Wind and fuel make their way through an Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake to lightweight aluminum heads, which float finned and polished valve cover under a duo of polished breathers. The fires get lit by a hot aftermarket distributor, which sparks loomed Taylor plug wires. Compression is created by a COMP hydraulic cam. Spent gases fall through coated Sanderson block huggers. At the front of those tubes, a billet serpentine drive spins a Stewart water pump between a polished alternator and a polished AC compressor. At the front of those ancillaries, electric puller fans cool a beefy aluminum radiator. The truck's massaged engine bay is detailed with quality items like billet tanks, a deep oil pan, a polished dipstick and buff Eddie Motorsports hood supports. And it all adds up to a stout 492 dyno-proven horsepower and 535 lb./ft. of dyno-proven torque.

BUILT TO ENJOY

Slide beneath this rig and you'll find a clean, road ready undercarriage that's founded on a sturdy Total Cost Involved chassis. Those Satin Black bones get led by a modern independent front-clip, which cages Detroit Speed-equipped coil-overs in polished spindles and polished control arms. Opposite that clip, a 4-link rear suspension stacks two more modern coil-overs on a web of polished bars. A dressed 700R4 4-speed twists torque to a Selenite Gray Metallic pumpkin that's built with a Truetrac posi, 31-spline axles and big, 3.70 gears. That momentum is countered by a floor-mount brake booster, which pushes power to polished calipers and a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors. Turns come courtesy of power rack-and-pinion steering. The aforementioned headers dump spent gases into large-diameter pipes, which inflate polished resonators and polished Kooks mufflers. A small Quick Car gauge monitors a massive fuel tank. And at the corners, color-keyed Foose Four42s spin 28x10.00R18 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs in front of 29x15.00R20 Mickey Thompson Sportsman S/Rs.

COOL IN CONTRAST

But the show doesn't stop there. Not by a long shot! When you pop the doors, you'll find a detail-oriented cockpit that, like the truck's slick body, is dialed in for both style and substance. Top dead center, a crisp dash hangs sleek AutoMeter Prestige telemetry next to hidden controls for modern audio and modern air conditioning. A diamond-stitched bench is perfectly aligned with custom door skins that are dotted with small power window switches. A trick mirror reflects a tight custom headliner. Clean carpet highlights billet foot pedals and a strategically placed E-brake handle. And the driver spins a polished and wood-rimmed steering wheel around a tilting column.

Easy to cruise and fun to look at, this choice Chevy should make every enthusiast smile. It backs modern performance with a solid restoration that's ready to conquer the blacktop and stop the show! Call your friends at RK Motors Charlotte for more information.
