A custom RideTech front suspension was installed, with modern tubular A-arms and two-inch drop spindles. A stainless steel RideTech four-link was installed in the rear.
Under the hood, is a GM ZZ3 350ci crate engine fitted with finned Corvette valve covers. The engine was primarily kept as-is from Chevrolet Performance, but there were some minor changes that added to its overall operation. Engine additions included March pulleys, a custom-built Rochester Quadrajet 625 carburetor and a 1962 Corvette air cleaner assembly.
Hedman Hedders and Flowmaster mufflers route the exhaust fumes through 2½-inch black powder-coated pipes. The engine’s temperature is maintained by an aluminum radiator and electric fan. Electronic ignition is provided by MSD and the Optima battery was frame-mounted under the bed. A GM 700R4 AOD transmission is connected to a column shifter. Supporting the 3100 is a set of stylish 18×8-inch and 20×10-inch Roulette wheels from Billet Specialties, wrapped in 235/50R18 and 295/45R20 BFGoodrich tires.
The dash uses a set of updated gauges from Classic Instruments and the chrome tilt steering column from Flaming River is topped off with a Billet Specialties steering wheel. Audio entertainment is provided by a JVC-CD head unit that spins tunes through JL Audio speakers mounted in the cab’s kick panels. Power windows, electric door locks and A/C unit transform this 1953 Chevrolet pickup into a comfortable, modern-day cruiser.The bed blends the interior with the exterior. Bed Wood, Inc., made a custom, exotic-wood bed floor with chrome strips.
This is a smokin' truck! Just beautiful!
