Lot #119 - This cool custom '49 Chevy stepside pickup is a real head-turner with its eye-grabbing patinaed orange and blue Gulf Oil-style livery paint-job over a beautifully customized body complete with the iconic Gulf logo on both doors and a one-of-a-kind cargo bed. A modern Camaro front-end system is mounted on a beautifully laid-out and highly detailed chassis. Power is provided by a fully balanced and blueprinted 375hp, 350ci V8 engine specifically built for this truck, equipped with a mild cam and Demon carb, and dressed up with lots of chrome goodies. Ceramic-coated headers route the spent exhaust gases to an awesome-sounding custom exhaust system. A GM Turbo 350 automatic transmission and custom-built driveline were specifically built to efficiently deliver power to the truck's massive 29" Mickey Thompson rear tires surrounding a set of one-off custom wheels. The pickup's interior features custom "Levi Strauss" denim upholstery, complete with useful pockets on the front of the seat to hold personal belongings. The beautiful, custom-built center gauge and stereo stack is also swaddled in denim and features a vintage Levi Strauss insignia to match. If the hot engine and exhaust note are not enough, the custom audio system provides further entertainment and includes SiriusXM satellite radio and iPod connectivity. Just 2,000 miles of use have been logged since this outstanding custom Chevy pickup was completed.
