Vehicle Description

Styles and trends come and go, but some things are timeless.  1956 Chevrolet trucks are approaching the classic status of their car counterparts.   And over the years the words “California custom” has resonated with a magical ring in the hot rod world.  Mattel even used the term in its Hot Wheels TV ads that caused a sensation back in the day. This ‘56 Chevy pickup is the product of Hot Rodriguez of Clovis, California and it could be a trophy winner anywhere in the country.  Candy blue exterior paint is an eye-catcher, and the design and workmanship demand a close-up look. The all-important stance was achieved through thorough engineering. A 4-link rear suspension with adjustable coilovers team up with a Mustang II front suspension with rack & pinion steering to provide refined ride and handling.  It certainly has the right rolling stock starting with impressive 20-inch Intro billet wheels. The tires are Nitto new NT555G2, the second generation of Nitto’s popular 555 ultra performance radial. The fat 305 rear tires actually have larger tread blocks by design than the 255’s used in front to optimize traction on takeoff. In back, a custom oak bed with stainless strips works well with the paint and the interior to provide a striking and integrated look.   The interior is downright luxurious. Two tone leather gives it a rich, factory appearance with bucket seats; plus a center console with an armrest and cup holders. Grab the oak steering wheel and billet shifter and take control. Even the pedals are billet. The steering column adjusts for your comfort along with power windows (with custom billet switches). Old Air air conditioning keeps you cool, and did we mention billet controls? Dakota Digital makes analog gauges too, and they look perfect in this truck.  Something that looks this great should run great too. An excellent solution for street performance is a Chevy 383 stroker small block. There’s no lack of goodies on this piece. It has aluminum heads and an Edelbrock 4-barrel on an Edelbrock manifold. Hedman ceramic coated headers look great and enhance performance and fuel economy. They dump into a 2½ inch dual exhaust system complete with an X-pipe in keeping with the build’s high level of engineering. A March serpentine pulley kit keeps things running while fitting right in with the show-level engine compartment.  Behind the motor is a tried and true TCI fortified Turbo 350 transmission. This ultra-slick custom ‘56 Chevy pickup is almost a sensory overload. It’s a true California custom with the looks, feel, sound, and performance that comes with that hallowed designation.
