This 1952 Chevy panel delivery is one of the slickest street rods we''ve ever featured. Dramatic and expertly built, it is the kind of machine that attracts crowds everywhere it goes, and you can tell that no detail was overlooked during its construction. It''s really impressive. Every square inch of the exterior of this truck was painted high-gloss black, which gives it a definite hot rod look. The finish quality suggests that the blackout paint job wasn''t done just to save money on chrome, but rather to make a unique statement that really works. All the exterior surfaces were sanded, smoothed, painted, and buffed to get that amazing shine that only black cars seem to exhibit. It was carefully assembled and aside from some shaved trim and emblems, uses all the factory components and sheetmetal without major mods. The fact that something from 1952 could look this sleek and sinister is a tribute to both the original design and the talent of the guys who created it as it sits today. The bulging rear fenders give it a very muscular look, and the entire body has a seamless look that looks so right you''d need a stock one for comparison to see all the tricks. LED taillights, a few well-placed Chevrolet script emblems, and just enough bright trim to add contrast make this a truck that''s a shoo-in for the big trophy at the next show. If you expected a plain-Jane working class interior, you''re going to be very pleasantly surprised by the beautifully finished tan upholstery and cargo area. Leather front buckets (the driver''s side is power-actuated) from a late-model were used as the starting point and everything else was hand-crafted to match. There''s a custom center console with an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit, beautifully sculpted door panels that are as interesting as the rest of the truck, and expertly fitted carpets that wouldn''t look out of place in a high-end German sedan. The dash was stripped and painted just like the body, with custom Dolphin gauges stuffed into the original instrument panel and A/C vents artfully integrated into the design. A tilt steering column with a billet wheel makes it easy to get comfortable, and that odd device stuck to the windshield ahead of the driver is called a "Trafficator," which allows you to view overhead stop lights even with the visor in place. In back, the cargo bay is fully upholstered, a job that must have taken serious amounts of both time and money, but as you can see, the results were worth it. Power comes from a 350 cubic inch crate engine topped by a Holley double-pumper and an HEI ignition system. It doesn''t break any new ground, but the hardware is high-quality, including the serpentine belt setup and aluminum radiator, and you know it''s reliable. With a TH350 3-speed automatic and 3.08 gears in the 10-bolt rear, it''s a superlative cruiser and popping the hood will generate appropriate levels of appreciation from anyone who sees it. The front suspension uses Fat Man Fabrication A-arms and coil-overs and a rack-and-pinion power steering setup, while leaf springs hold up the rear. A custom-fabricated dual exhaust system has just the right sound with trick center-mounted outlets under the rear bumpers, and there are power front disc brakes for safety. Adding just the right amount of contrast, Eagle Alloy wheels carry 245/45/17 performance radials. It would be absolutely impossible to duplicate this truck for the asking price, and if you want a sure-fire showstopper, you won''t find one better than this for less money. Call today!
