Chuck is a firm believer that in order to build a stellar truck, you have to start with a solid foundation that is made to last. As a GSI Machine & Fabrication dealer under his Chucksee brand, it was a no-brainer to use one of the company’s latest offerings-a complete, custom, laser-cut air ride-equipped chassis made specifically for ’55-59 GM trucks! With that one move, Chuck set himself up with a proper ride and proper handling, while being able to instantly flatten the truck on the ground at the tap of a button on the AccuAir e-Level controller. The trick 22-inch wheels on the ’55 were built by Greening Auto Company to Chuck’s specs and were dubbed Chucksee 88s due to the eight spoke/eight window design.
IN TOTAL, IT TOOK CHUCK JUST OVER 11 MONTHS TO FINISH THE TRUCK, AND WHEN ASKED HOW MUCH IT COST TO BUILD THE TRUCK, HE SIMPLY REPLIED, “EIGHT QUARTS OF SWEAT!”
