When construction of this Model A pickup began at SO-CAL Speed Shop in Pomona, CA, the intent was to "capture the essence of mid-'50s Southern California styling. To that end the body of the hauler was left stock, made perfectly straight and painted black, and that include the grille shell. It rolls on chrome wheels with '50 Merc hubcaps wrapped with wide whites. The bumpers have been left off and a vintage wooden toolbox can be found in the bed. Underneath the flawless sheetmetal is a SO-CAL New Traditionalist chassis with an I-beam axle on hairpins. The 350 Chevy is coupled to a Turbo 350 trans followed by Currie 9-inch rearend. Inside is a leather-covered bench seat, a '32 dash with a SO-CAL instrument panel, gauges, and switches. A cut-down '40 steering wheel tops a custom column.
