For Sale: 1955 Chevrolet Hot Rod in LEICESTERSHIRE, UK

Vehicle Description

1955 GMC Chevrolet Truck - Turbo
Recipient of three Hot Rod Awards:

1) NSRA Hot rod Supernationals at Old Warden, taking a show-wide top 10 2) The Liberty and Lows Pick of the Show (August 2021)
3)  Second place in the ‘Best American Truck’ category at Convoy in the Park.  

This truck is immaculate inside and out, there is not a scratch, not a bump, not a ridge, not a scuff and not a mark. There are new cars that leave factories that are not as clean as this machine.  Built by the team of Hot Rod gearheads at Jack’s Shack in the UK, known for creating bespoke campervans and custom trucks. This team leaves nothing to chance and the quality of the work supports their Hot Rod ethos.
Under the ‘hood’ it ain't 1955 anymore.  Modern running gear and DAF 45 axles are under the control of a ZF 5-speed gearbox, air clutch, and a hugely powerful 5.9ltr Cummins engine, complete with turbo and intercooler.

With all that power it was right to seriously beef up the brakes, in fact, replacing them entirely, with a set of air-over-hydraulic brakes that, in the American parlance, ‘stop on a quarter and leave a dime’.

An air-ride system, with roughly 5-inches of travel, leaving the truck resting on its sills, makes for both a great showpiece, a practical option for speed bumps and a great ride.

Outside, huge house-built exhaust stacks give this truck yet another entirely unique aspect, although it’s hard to say that they dominate, as that accolade must fall to the wood-finished, remote-controlled, custom tipping bed, complete with hidden ramps and built-in lockers. The bed measures in at 18ft long and 7ft 2 wide, giving the truck in its entirety a length of 29ft!

The exterior has been completed with a one-off paint job, befitting this already award-bound machine.

Inside, the cab plays host to a classic three-seat bench, covered in a rich dark leather, with stitching to compliment the paintwork.

This really is a one-of-a-kind vehicle, ideal for anyone with a car or motorbike collection they want to transport in unrivaled style. Or someone who simply loves a proper American classic done right.
