Lot #468.2 - This stepside pickup has just undergone a complete frame-off restoration creating one unbelievable Resto-Mod. Starting with a completely rust-free truck the body was removed from the frame where the chassis underwent several modifications. 4-wheel Wilwood disc brakes were added and the steering was updated with a power rack & pinion set up.

All the chrome and stainless are new along with all the glass and weather stripping. Wood floor in bed and custom frenched tail lights in the fenders. The custom black leather interior is what really raises the bar on this truck. All molded black leather, from the seats, door panels, kick panels, headliner, behind the seat and even atop the dash. The complete cab interior is covered in black leather. A new Ididit chrome tilt column was installed with a custom leather wrapped steering wheel. New Auto Meter gauges have been added along with Vintage Air and a Kenwood sound system. This awesome truck is powered by a fuel-injected Vortec 6.0-liter V8 producing 300hp and 360lb/ft of torque.
