This is one serious ride. If you were to price this build at your high-end reputable hot rod shop, quality for quality, item for item, you would be well into 6-figures for the parts and labor alone and over a 1 year build time.
This work has been acclaimed in national media for precision, creativity and perfection.
This show-stopping truck is fully road-tested and ready to enjoy.
