This is auction is for a Custom built 1952 Chevy truck. It has been in the build process for 2 years. Parts have been gathered up over the last 20 years. This truck was built to resemble the custom hotrods of the 1950's. It has been built with mostly vintage parts. It does have front disc brakes for safety and non power rack and pinion to keep a clean profile. I call this truck the Orphan. The 52 was builtfrom 30 differentvehicles. Over the years I gathered up parts that were neglected and left abandoned. A long time ago I decided to collect all these parts that no one wanted and make a bad ass hotrod out of them that everyone wanted. 2 years ago I decided I had just about everything needed to get started, so with a blank canvas and a shop full of parts thebuild began.

Not sure how long ago it was done butAll original parts were used tocreate the suicide doors, firewall was left original but has manyholes field for a cleaner look, the bed was pushed closer to the cab with the running boards and filler panels shortened for a better looking appearance. When putting this truck together I wantedit torepresent the 50's...how a hotrod should look.... I wanted it to look as if it was a custom in the early 50's and later turned into ahotrod in the late 50's... I did not want it to look like some truck that had aftermarket parts bolted on... I felt that the truck needed to show what kind of life it has lived... what it came from... yet look as if has been this way for the last 50 years...... I took it to a car showNov. 7th of this year and itwon the "Greaser"award...an award for the best looking 50's style hotrod... so I guess I achieved what I set out to do. First car show and got a top award/trophy for exactly what it was meant to represent... not bad for an"orphan".... atruck builtfromparts nobodywanted.... a truck that still shows its scars.
