This has got to be one of the coolest customs that began life as a Chevy short-bed pickup in the 60's I've ever seen. I've seen lots of nice restored/hot-rodded pick ups of this vintage, but this one is just over the top in vision and execution.
Oh wow... That's a 1961 hood used as the cowl of the cab!!! I don't even want to begin to think about how many hours they spent sanding body filler.
That last guy that commented has no idea what he is talking about. This truck is so cool!
Hmmph. I think I like this - it certainly would have involved an incredible amount of fabrication. While I get the "adherence to a vision", I agree that I wants wider and taller shoes on the back - and I'd be tempted to run "truck" wheels like chrome 10-hole big rig stock. Or maybe vintage steelies and caps...? Great capture though!
Charp Chevvie, man.
OMFG this is the most GORGEOUS thing ive ever laid eyes on......
Those exhaust pipes are literally touching the ground, lol!
Those are some low and awesome lake pipes - and yep - this one might need some bigger wheels in back but everything else is so...unique and different, and in a good way too.
Now that's one of the more better ones I've seen in a long time. AND YES I would have put bigger shoes on the rear.
This one started out as a "what if" type rendering in, I believe it was, Truckin' magazine and somebody decided let's build it!!! The finished product came out better than the rendering, which is rare!!!
That's totally cool information.
Yeah I stay pretty well up to date when it comes to custom cars and trucks. I subscribe to more than a few car and truck mags!!!
Wish I had that kind of time again. Maybe later in life. In the meantime, enjoy your "research"!
Unfortunately I have the time due to a disabling back injury. But I know where your coming from!!!
Wow...what a scramble...cool use of the hood. I think it need bigger meats on the back though maybe?
Very interesting relocation of the front grille. I'd say that's a hotrod pickup if I've ever seen one.
