1954 chevy pu
All original sheet metal, this truck has a super cool patina that has lots of character. That means it has scratches and dents that we have not tried to remove as they fit its look and show some of the trucks history. That being said, the body is extremely solid structurally with zero rust in the cab corners and doors or floor, which is unusual in an original cab of this age (except the light surface rust on the exterior of the truck). The truck started life as a Â¾ ton long box, we shortened the bed by 11â€. The only body panel that was replaced was the original front panel in the bed that had rusted due to somebody leaving a pile of dirt in it. The bed floor is all new built from old growth fir barn wood and aluminum strips. All lights are LED, font marker lights are now clear running lights that switch to amber and flash for turn signals. Headlights are super bright LED's as well and are top end lights.
All new, inside of cab has fresh paint to match original grey, all new glass and rubber, new rubber weather strip and window channel felts. Cab has been heavily lined with sound deadener and floor insulation and new carpeting. Gauges are Dakota Digital VHX series analog gauges it also utilizes Dakota Digitals shifter position switch which is tied into the gauges. This allows for gear position readout on gauge and provides park/neutral safety start switch. In the center console there is a Jensen 6.5â€ touch screen head unit, this unit has Satellite navigation and serves as the screen for the backup camera. There are Two 4â€ speakers behind the factory radio grill two 6.5â€ in the kick panels two 8â€ mid rang subs in the cab corners behind the seat, and two 10â€ MTX 1000W dual voice coil subs behind the seats. Power comes via one MTX 1000W class D mono amp for the two subs and MTX 900W 4 channel for the mid range subs and the kick panel speakers. To say the least the sound is amazing. Leather seats, leather wrapped banjo steering wheel and tilt column.
The Engine is a mid 90â€™s 454 rebuilt .030 over bore with Procomp Aluminum heads with Comp Cams â€œThumperâ€ cam lifters and roller rockers. On top is an air gap intake, Pertronixs Billet distributor with their â€œFlame Throwerâ€ coil with a MSD Street avenger ignition box (I use it for the rev limiter). All that is capped off with FI TECH 600hp power adder fuel injection system with a FI TECH fuel pump. The transmission is a new rebuilt 700R4 with a 2800 stall converter with manual lock up and Lokar floor shifter. In the rear is a ford 9â€ with 3:73 gears and a Detriot locker. For brakes we are using C5 Corvette Calipers and rotors the rear are Wilwood factory replacement calipers. Power brake booster and master cylinder are mounted in the factory location under the floor.
The front suspension is a Heights mustang II with tubular control arms and the Larger T-bird Power rack and pinion and. QA1 col over shock with adjustable valving
Rear Suspension is Parallel 4 link with a pan hard bar the rear is also using a pair of QA1 col over shock with adjustable valving.
The truck also has Heat, A/C, Cruise control, Satellite Navigation, Back up camera, and functioning wipers.
I built this truck to keep so I put everything in it I would want but once again I'm ready to move on to another project. This thing runs drives and rides great, its a blast to drive you can kick the back end out when you want but it doesn't try to kill you it has plenty of power sounds awesome and looks amazing going down the road. People walk past 100k cars at car shows to come and look at this thing.
If you have questions please feel free to email me I will return all reasonable questions asap, I would be happy to send more pictures if you need as well.
