I have been working on my own vehicles since I was a kid. I have always had an imagination, allowing me to think outside the box and make things my own, via customization, with little to no money. This truck has helped me learn many new skill sets with fabrication and welding.
This is built with effort and passion. Low budget build with mostly used parts
I wanted to build a 1934-36 Chevrolet “high-top” open wheel truck. I found that they were quite rare and usually too far away. High shipping costs and also wanted to see what I was buying were my concerns.
I wanted a project that would turn heads, so figured a 1957 Chevy would do just that over here in the UK
A sick friend of mine started about 20% of it and couldn’t finish so I talked him into selling it to me so I could let him see it completed.
It used to be a local grocery store delivery truck.
I was looking for a truck of this era for my wife.
I drew and built my frame. Everything was done at home in a 12′ x 24′ shed or out in the yard, weather permitting.
I purchased the start of this project by trading for it piece by piece traded a 1929 Mercedes Benz kit car for the project and a lot of other old goodies to make this build happen.
Since my Dad passed away last year we have been taking it to car shows and driving it!
