1936 Chevy Crew Cab Dually with 5.9L 24-Valve Cummins Diesel Engine

1936 Chevy Crew Cab Dually

Chad Martin has been turning heads with his custom ’36 Chevy Master Sedan which he and his staff at Chad’s Custom Dreams in Saluda, South Carolina custom built.

More than $500,000 and a lot of care went into transforming an old Chevy Sedan into a “Brutally Sexy” automobile. The team at Chad’s Custom Dreams began work on the stunning design in 2016, spending two years transforming the old Sedan into a sleek 750hp beast.

“What makes this car so special is I got to dream it up, design it, build it, paint it and see it all the way through. You can’t get much better than that, to build your dream.”
