This is my 56 Chevy Stepside. It is under construction, but I am hoping to have it ready for some driving this summer. The paint colors are all from Corvettes. Black, Sunset Orange Metallic and Anniversary Gold.
Shaved door handles and bear claw latches added.
Still needed: Interior, Windows, weather stripping, bed floor, wheels, and mirrors.
History of this Vehicle
Bought from a yard full of cars/trucks for very little. It was just the frame and all body parts. Pretty covered with a lot of surface rust. I had to replace the front bed panel and the tailgate with new pieces. Cab corners replaced with new ones pieces.
Frame off build. 79 Camaro front clip. 69 Camaro rear end.
Plans for this Vehicle
I plan on making this a show and go vehicle. I am not very big on trailer queens. As an artist, I understand the need to have cars that are all show, but that ain’t me. If there is an engine in the car, it is going to get driven.
Sponsors & Special Thanks
