Customer Story: Monte E.

Add Article To List

Working on our ‘55 Chevy truck. The whole family gets involved, my wife, son and daughter, and not to be forgotten my Dad before he passed. He was the inspiration and teacher. We are driven to get this truck to the finish line to honor him.

We’re building a 1955 Chevy truck. We started with a truck out of a field. Next came a new full coil-over chassis and an engine and transmission from at 2010 Camaro SS. Since then, we’ve been slowly merging the old with the new. We now have a running and driving truck. Next up are the interior; we’re currently sitting on coolers to drive, and the trucks box and bed.

Owners are Dianne and me, Monte. Dianne is responsible for coming up with the idea for the build.

Builders include our son, Ian, and daughter, Paige.

Special thanks to Mike S. of Sydney NE. Mike is a wiring and plumbing master.

Also want to thank everyone at Speedway for their constant help. Counter people, Tech Support, everyone I’ve talked to has always been eager to get me through the tough spots.
