Want to own a magazine cover truck? Here’s your chance!! This fully custom, no expense spared custom Chevrolet Pro Street pickup has it all and more! Here’s a breakdown of the details:
The engine is a 468CI Big block Chevy, backed by a Turbo 400 trans with a column shift. It’s kept cool by a Cadillac 4 row radiator, and dual 16″ E-Fans. The engine bay has also been shaved, smoothed, and painted for a show ready finish.
The rear end is a narrowed Ford 9″ mounted on an adjustable ladder bar flanked by HUGE Hoosier radials and deep dish Torque Thrust wheels. Stopping is handled by large Ford rear drums. Up front, an 85 Buick Regal front clip is supported by 2″ belltech lowering spindles and disc brakes. The brakes are operated by a Corvette master cylinder.
As for the body, its straight as an arrow; and the hood, antenna, fuel door, and door handles have been shaved. The paint is 1999 Milano Red, with 6 different colors of pearl making the ghost flames on the hood and upper fenders. The bed is a Chevrolet GMT 400 stepside bed, made to fit the earlier chassis. It has billet steps, a rear roll pan, fiberglass bed cover, and finished inside with ladder notch cover, tubs, and relocated battery and fuel cell.
The interior is a bench covered in tweed and ultra leather, sculptured door panels, with custom console, headliner, stereo, speakers, and gauges. There are several billet items throughout along with a painted dash. The truck also has A/C, provided by Hot Rod Air.
