Pick-ups have always been a part of the American way of life, and this extends to hot rods. Their lightweight bodies and utilitarian looks go against the grain but that's part of their attraction. They also came with strong chassis and uprated suspension so could take a lot of modifying without major component renewal. Saying that, for the ultimate in style and performance, you have to build any car from the ground up, and that means completely new underpinnings. This pick-up uses a custom steel separate chassis with a Mustang II independent wishbone front end and live axle rear with semi-elliptical springs and traction bars. The engine is the hot rodder's favorite, a small-block Chevy giving mid-14 second potential on the quarter-mile. In typical street rod fashion, this pick-up features a custom interior with leather and air-conditioning for the ultimate in cruising.
