We have to thank Matt Cramer of DiyAutoTune.com for the tip on this pretty incredible Craigslist find. Long story short, some guys converted a 1972 C10 truck into a huge grill that can be towed behind a pickup truck to races, football games, shotgun weddings, and mud bogs. The truck itself actually looks like it was pretty clean before this process was begin and since the bed has been significantly bobbed, the frame has been discarded, and the cab has been gutted, this thing is either going to be a grill for the rest of its natural life or it will donate its cab and sheet metal to someone restoring an early 1970s C10. Oh, the seller is looking for the low, low price of $7,000 for his creation.
We don’t get to see many before photos but the one that shows the nose of the truck head on seems to display a very clean firewall, straight fenders and a dirty, but intact windshield. Since these trucks are among the hottest segment in the classic truck world, those are all things some guys in parts of the country that have rust issues would all be dying to have. We don’t see the stock bed so there’s no way of knowing if that was largely rotted and screwed up before being bobbed. The bob was done by using an stepped style cut and frankly it looks pretty pro. The one thing we can’t take a swing at with regard to this creation is the fact that the fabrication all looks pretty good. You can see the square tube frame and trailer axle that replaced the factory axle in the front of the truck (which becomes the rear of the grill when it is towed) and you can also see the brake lights that were added to the factory headlight buckets to make the thing legal for use on the road.
Here’s the text of the ad:
