Up until Adam Wiskow sent us a link to the 1972 Chevy truck below we thought that it was impossible to screw up modifying a 1967-1972 Chevy truck. Really, we have seen hundreds and hundreds of them over the year at shows and if you want to make them into a pro street type truck, they look cool. These babies are the hottest thing in the pro touring world right now and again, love ’em. Even restored to factory original with shiny trim and the factory engine they draw a crowd. We never considered that someone would look at one of the nicest pickup designs of all time and think, “Hey, about two feet out of the middle (lengthwise) of that truck would make it more-perfecter.” Yes, this person turned a 1972 Chevy truck into a “roadster” and it is just not good.
Here’s the seller’s pitch in the CL ad, “This cute little roadster was originally a 1972 Chevy longbox. It is completely custom! The top comes off and stores in the bed of the truck, making it a fun little convertible! “Adirondac” style seats are unique to this fun machine. The mirror and the back window are Chevy bow ties! “Look honey, I shrunk the truck!”
The ultra narrowed grill actually struck us a cool element of the truck but the more I stare at it, the less I am willing to admit that I like it. From the weird seats to the exterior everything, this is one of the strangest things we have ever seen on the interviews for sale.
Did we mention that Nutting wants to buy it?
