Chevy Shortbed by tundra-timmy Chevy Shortbed by tundra-timmy
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.

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!

Thanks and I guess wide meats are needed here to complete the WOW factor.

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.

The air suspension brings it up a bit, but not much.

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.

Maybe the smaller profile makes it a long range roadster rather than a short distance looker.

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!!!

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"!

Bummer. I had back surgery a decade ago and can totally sympathize. It's been heaven ever since.

Thanks Bro!!  It's always a gamble with back surgery!  Unfortunately I've met more people who are still in pain after back surgery than not!!!  I'm happy to hear you are doing well!!

Wow...what a scramble...cool use of the hood. I think it need bigger meats on the back though maybe?

Tradition says yes. But this vision obviously has a specific blueprint. I think it works.

Very interesting relocation of the front grille.  I'd say that's a hotrod pickup if I've ever seen one.
