ProTouring 1954 Chevy Truck
Trucks have never been more popular in the classic car world than they are presently. To stereotype, trucks builds have typically either gone up or down with their suspension to create the builder’s desired look. Typically 2WD trucks have gone down, and I mean really down with their stance. Many builders are not content with their trucks stance until the running boards are sitting on the asphalt. Having the perfect stance is super important, but most of these heavily lowered trucks would not perform well on an autocross track. Enter the era of ProTouring. Now you can build a truck that has the aggressive look you desire and the performance to back it up. We had a blast building this 54 Chevy truck into a modern ProTouring rig that can haul a whole lot of something that rhymes with grass.
From humble beginnings…this is what we started with as a basis for the 54’s build.
