Steel gray over a solid hand-crafted all-steel body, a fitting combination. Yes, this rock-solid hot rod not only looks intimidating with the unique front facia but backs it up with a solid powerful 350CID V8. The automatic transmission allows you to sit back and cruise yet responds to your command when you want to claim the road in front of you.

Built on a Corvette C4 platform, this 40 Chevy is as solid as you can find, plus you get the benefit of an independent rear suspension! Updates for the enjoyment of the driver also include tilt wheel, power front and rear disc brake, and power steering. The positraction rear axle is setup with the perfect balance of acceleration and highway cruising. The large radiator has an electric fan, plus there is a transmission cooler, all to ensure you can cruise in parades or down the highway on a hot day without concern. On those days, everyone inside the large cabin will enjoy the air conditioning too.

The interior is large and comfortable with clean lines and simple controls. There are plenty of gauges that keep you informed and features like power windows, and remote hood and trunk release are there for your convenience. The shaved doors pop open remotely and there is a super-secret alternate release too. The trunk has ample storage for a weekend getaway.

Subtle features like the flush twist-on gas cap, uniform gapping, and slightly recessed taillights show the attention to detail put into the build. Want even more proof? Check out the underside photos. You will need to pack mirrors to show the polished stainless steel underside. Seriously, take a moment and scroll to the images of the underside. It is truly amazing, have you ever seen so much detail and stainless steel under a car?

Now, look at the rest of the photos again realizing that the same care and attention to detail that went into the underside also went into the parts you see, feel, and hear every time you drive this hand-crafted piece of art.

Elegantly aggressive and ready to roll down the highway, this hot rod Chevy is waiting to be yours!
