This 1939 Plymouth truck has been built to look like a vintage Shell Oil Service Truck. The build is based on original all steel 1939 Plymouth body. The hood is a custom built with the front fenders attached to form a tilt front end that gives the truck a vintage gasser look. The custom oil tank is hand formed and features several compartments that open up to spacious storage and access to the gas tank that has been relocated to the rear of the frame. This is an older build and while there are a few small blemishes in the finish, the paint presents very well with a deep luster. The Shell decorations are bright in color and sharp, and the font is era correct for the Post-War era and lightly accented with some vintage hot rod pinstripe. This custom body work sits on a 1993 GMC S15 Chassis that features plenty of custom touches. The custom gas tank has been relocated to the rear of the frame and the filler cap is hidden inside the tank compartment. The radiator and transmission cooler have been relocated to the rear of the chassis. The cooling system cooling is clean and very custom looking. The S15 chassis is stock with power brakes with discs upfront and drum brakes out back, the steering and related suspension is well maintained and ready to cruise on custom steel wheels wrapped in white wall radial tires with chrome hardened lug nuts. Other features include the custom trailer hitch. The interior is professionally upholstered with custom suede leather door panels and seat inserts on the bucket seats. Other custom features include tailored carpet with floor mats and headliner. A GM tilt steering column has been adapted to the cabin and the original factory gauges are still present in the dash. Engine vitals are monitored by a set of AutoMeter gauges and music fills the interior through a Boss AM/FM/CD audio system with Bluetooth. This truck was built to be driven and the Garmin navigation system is proof of this. The GM Turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed transmission is shifted by a B&M Shifter. Under the hood beats a 270cid V8 Semi-Hemi. These powerplants were Chrysler's first V8 engine and featured a dual rocker valvetrain which is covered by a scalloped valve covers. Developed from Chrysler's aviation research during World War II, this efficient powerhouse has roughly hemispherical heads, opposing valves, and a complex valvetrain that uses dual rocker arm shafts for each cylinder. It is the perfect centerpiece for this vintage style rod. A period correct Offenhauser tri-power intake is topped by Stromberg carburetors and the exhaust gases exit through custom headers into glass packed mufflers. This vintage style hot rod is a real eye catcher and will no doubt be a showstopper at your local cruise-in and car shows. But it's more than just a show queen, this truck has been a proven driver ready to carry you to some automotive gatherings out of town. It is affordably priced and ready to cruise.
