So, you've undoubtedly checked out the photos of this awesome Chevy pickup, and you've probably formed a few thoughts and opinions. Indeed, this classic is a very cool custom that was built to turn heads. And yes, it is capable of sitting on the ground and effortlessly transforming into the centerpiece of an octane-laced art exhibit. However, this trick truck isn't just some stiff show queen that's been wrapped in pretty paint. It's a bona fide show stopper that can also be easily cruised down the strip! Looking for an exclusive classic that poses well and kicks asphalt? Check out this choice Chevy!
When you set your sights on creating something legit and truly unique, you just can't go wrong starting with vintage Detroit style. Thankfully, the folks at Classic Auto Body of Granite Falls, North Carolina certainly know how to massage attractive factory fodder into a sweet, show stopping custom. Fiberglass fenders strung across a steel cab, a steel bed, a steel hood and steel running boards, this Chevy methodically transformed from a cool project into cool headliner. A big reason for that headlining status is a sinuous profile that was bathed in Metallic Green base, licked with brilliant flames and sealed in a glossy layer of clear. And today, this truck rolls as a dreamy pavement pounder that's poised to claim trophies and sure to turn heads!
Of course, it takes more than slick paint and a few body modifications to impress the hot rod crowd, and a closer look at this beast reveals a roster of impressive detailing. The show starts with an ornate Chevrolet grille that hangs a subtle MQQN Equipment badge between smooth marker lamps. Alluring '39 Ford headlights lead sculpted fenders, which lead glossy running boards that are notched around boxed exhaust tips. A four-piece hood stretches classy stainless in front of a clean greenhouse that reflects shaved doors in polished billet mirrors. Behind that glass, stainless-trimmed wood hoists a polished nitrous tank between a flush fuel filler and a custom enclosure for the truck's trick air ride. And that bed is secured by an artsy tailgate that employs cool GM seatbelt latches above LED taillights and a custom roll pan.
Pop the hood and you'll find 383 cubic inches of spry Chevy stroker that wraps a whole lot of show around a whole lot of go! At the top of that 495 horsepower mill, a tidy air cleaner dumps wind through a big Holley 4-barrel that's wired with stainless lines, an electric choke and a quality Lokar linkage. That coated carb caps a chromed Edelbrock intake, which feeds aluminum heads that are dressed in polished breathers and chromed valve covers. The fires get lit by loomed Accel Super Stock Radio Suppression cables, which milk a hot MSD distributor. Polished Concept One pulleys cinch pliable V-belts around a polished water pump, modern power steering, a polished AC compressor and a polished Powermaster alternator. Spent gases traverse coated block hugger headers. Cooling comes courtesy of a proven Walker radiator, which fronts a quick electric puller fan. Naturally, the clean engine features first rate details, like trick sticks, billet tanks and a coated Holley fuel pump. And the truck's compact engine bay wraps braided coolant lines, a polished brake booster and billet hood hardware in clean Metallic Green paint.
The bottom of this awesome resto-mod is just as impressive as its slick exterior and tidy engine bay. Behind the mean motor, a tough 700R4 4-speed spins power through a color-keyed driveshaft to a dressed 10-bolt axle. That proven drivetrain pushes a modern 4-link rear-clip that's garnished with adjustable AccuAir bags and fresh RideTech shocks. Opposite that clip, a Heidts independent front-half cages two more adjustable AccuAir bags in tubular control arms and two more RideTech shocks. Naturally, that kit is led by power rack-and-pinion steering. At the corners, power-assisted calipers squeeze a quartet of vented rotors. Exhaust is handled by custom, large-diameter pipes, which snake through electronic cutouts and great sounding MagnaFlow mufflers. Power rolls through painted Boss Motorsports blades, which spin 235/40ZR18 General Exclaims in front of 295/30ZR20 General Exclaims. And every one of this Chevy's details, from its insulated floors to its polished fuel tank, has been carefully planned and professionally executed.
Much nicer than simple factory fodder, this pickup's supple leather cockpit flows well with its superfly exterior. Bolstered buckets float plush leather at the sides of a thin console that's finished with control's for the aforementioned AccuAir suspension. A stylish dash stacks crisp VDO telemetry behind a hydro-dipped instrument panel, a hydro-dipped glovebox door and Pioneer touchscreen audio. Color-keyed carpet frames billet foot pedals between custom side panels, which stack billet handles in front of modern, power-operated windows. And the driver spins an attractive Billet Specialties Monaco wheel around a polished, tilting column.
Lust worthy, fully sorted and ready to turn heads, this awesome Chevy is an excellent combination of cool looks and reliable performance. Call, click or visit http:///www.RKMotors.com for more information.
