(from Roadster Shop Press Release)  Roadster Shop 1949 Chevy Pickup.

This 1949 pickup started with the idea of building a vintage truck from the ground up with as many new parts as possible. Upon completion of the truck, a total of five original parts were used on the finished vehicle: the radiator support (scrounged from the Roadster Shop parts graveyard), a pair of door strikers, and a couple of body mounts that could not be located in reproduction form.

The Roadster Shop specializes in complete high performance chassis and one of their ’46-59 Chevy Pickup packages built on custom 10-gage fully boxed rails is the foundation of the whole package. Components include a Heidt’s Superide independent front suspension, dropped spindles and tubular motor mounts plus a Ford 9-inch rear end with triangulated four bars and coilovers.

Modern performance continues under the hood, stuffed with a 410hp, 5.7-liter LS1 crate engine mated to a 4L65E automatic transmission. Wheels are 18x8 and 17x7 Wheel Vintiques Billet Smoothies with 225 and 235-series Bridgestone radials alongside Wilwood six-piston 13 inch front disks, with 11 inch four-pistons in the back.
