One of our roving hot rod hunters caught up with Patrick and Ethel from Illinois and their unique 1946 Chevrolet truck.
We were particularly fond of the hood ornament. It started life as a trailer hitch and was also crafted by Patrick. Smoke ’em if ya got ’em…
This beauty was acquired in January 2013 and has been worked over from the ground up.
Patrick dropped and chopped the truck, punched literally hundreds of louvers, built the dash, and fitted the truck with an engine and transmission from a 2008 GMC truck — the Cadillac valve covers keep folks guessing.
