Vehicle Description

This Outrageous 1956 Chevrolet Pickup Truck, known as 'Heavy Metal 1', is an Over-The-Top Award-Winning custom who's build was featured on TLC's 'RIDES' television program. Powered by a 5.7L Chevrolet LS1 Engine with Magnusson Supercharger (estimated 500hp), that's backed by a Bowler's Performance 700-R4 Automatic Trans. With cameras rolling, the crew at Scott's Hotrods 'N Customs took the '56 Chevy truck and whittled, molded, and sculpted every panel from front to rear, inside and out. There are countless hand fabricated parts - from the all-steel body, the front grille, exhaust, tail lights, body, frame, wishbone front suspension, etc., to the custom leather interior, dash and interior panels. They didn't just whittle, however, they created a sculptured street truck that has had every photographer in the publishing industry begging for permission to photograph this redheaded roadster, and judges at every event are admiring and praising the truck's unique looks and quality construction. 'Best Truck' and 'Best Radical Truck' honors were bestowed on this trick topless wonder at the Detroit Autorama Auto Show, where only the best rods and customs were selected to appear. A truly one-of-a-kind piece of art on wheels, the time, energy and money into this build is on full display everywhere. From the polished custom racing wheels to the smallest fastener, it is custom fabricated and chromed or polished to the highest level. It would cost somewhere between $200-300K to replicate this build, depending on how crazy of a car was desired.The abbreviated bed is a custom creation with widened rear fenders and a narrowed Speedway Engineering rearend that's mounted with a Scott's four-bar with billet rod ends. Up front, there are custom-fabricated horizontal grille bars that are the only bright metal on the entire truck's exterior besides the polished billet wheels. Notice the flush-mounted taillamps and the center-mounted third brake lamp. A custom windshield rounds out the flowing lines (no side glass). With a laser-straight body, DuPont's Ferrari Red paint was expertly applied, with countless hours invested in hand-polishing to achieve the mile-deep finish.There are plenty of fire-breathing ponies under the hood to back up the attention that this radical truck commands in the form of a Pro-Built Chevy LS1 backed by a Bowler's Performance 700-R4 tranny. A Magnuson supercharger with a performance intake manifold and a Superchips Ignition feed the LS1 a high-performance air/fuel mixture and spine-tingling charge. Rewarder Headers and Flowmaster Mufflers send the spent gasses through polished stainless steel tubes and exhaust ports located in the rear fenders. Construction details include stock frame rails with all custom cross-members that include a bagged SuperSlam IFS, a Speedway Engineering quick-change rearend with bags, and Wilwood cross-ventilated disc brakes with six-piston calipers at the corners. Also at the corners is a unique set of Colorado Custom billet wheels, 18x8-inch fronts and 20x12-inch rears.The able hands of Jesse's Upholstery in Ventura, California, stitched together an eclectic mix. Covering the floor of the cab is luxurious and plush, wool carpeting. The custom seats, handmade door panels, and bed floor are outfitted with supple, tan leather. For a touch of accent to the interior, custom-dyed alligator skin is sewn into the seat centers, the Colorado Custom steering wheel ring, door panel trim, and the rear bed wall. Topping off the interior work is a pair of color-matched Classic gauges and a billet switch panel for the air ride. A highly polished ididit steering column mated to Borgeson steering joints keep it going straight down the road. The custom Arc Audio sound system was well over $20k alone and is beyond unbelievable - it's really loud, and very clear.If you're ready to stand out with an amazing custom build that is the perfect mix of in-your-face attitude and first class modern performance, featuring an awesome combination of outrageous looks and vicious street manners, this is the car for you!For more information on this '56 Chevy Street-Rod Pickup, or any of our 50+ Classic and Collectible cars always in stock, contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable sales consultants today or always feel free to drop by our Bellevue, WA facility - With 200+ Cars Always on Site, Park Place Ltd is Home to the West Coast's Most Diverse Inventory of Luxury, Exotic, Collectible and Special Interest Automobiles.
