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. Please call if you are interested in this vehicle
