The body was finished with Glasurit two-stage black and silver custom-mix paint with silver two-toned accents. The door handles and keyholes were shaved and are now remote-controlled, as is the rear tailgate. A custom-tilt hood was fabricated, the wipers were smoothed, and all the exterior trim and hardware has been chrome plated to show-quality standards, including the front and rear smoothed bumpers. The amazing one-off interior is finished in a two-tone black leather and suede combination with four eight-way power adjustable bucket seats. Fitted with a Flaming River tilt column and Famosa leather wrapped steering wheel, custom engine-turned dash and Auto Meter gauges.
