This highly customized ’56 Chevy truck has undergone a meticulous, frame-off restoration by the team at Velocity Restorations. The chassis was outfitted with Mustang II IFS, stainless 4-link, Ridetech’s complete Shockwave air-ride system, custom fabricated 20-gallon fuel cell, narrowed rear end with Strange axles and 3.73 Positraction unit, and more.

Under the hood is an LS1 engine upgraded with LS2 fuel injectors, intake and 96-mm throttle body. Engine was hooked to a 4L60E automatic transmission to obtain optimal cruising RPMs.

Hundreds of hours were spent on bodywork and panel alignment to achieve perfection. Custom fabrication on the body includes Cadillac lights, shaved firewall, tubbed bed, shaved bed panels and rails, hidden tailgate latches, center console and a ’59 Impala dash.

The interior of this truck is what really sets it apart from the rest. The focus point is the ’59 Impala dash installed with custom center console and Lokar shifter. The dash was outfitted with Dakota Digital speedometer cluster, air conditioning controller and air ride controller. Restoration completed in February 2014.
