“PIN­STRIPE” CHRIS DUN­LOP RE­CENTLY SHARED THIS REN­DER­ING HE FIN­ISHED FOR ROBERT TRUEAX OF SYN­DI­CATE AUTO WERX IN PHOENIX. Robert’s ’66 Chevy Car­ryall prom­ises to be quite the neck-breaker with its US Mags Her­itage wheels and ’bagged Porter­built Drop­mem­ber sus­pen­sion, which will be con­trolled by an Ac­cuair e-level sys­tem.

Other mod­i­fi­ca­tions of note in­clude a wedged chop with 12 inches of glass all around, a ful­l­length rag­top, brushed nickel and stain­less bright work. An­other neat fea­ture is that the roof hump that usu­ally be­gins right after the rear edge of the doors has been moved all the way back to be­hind the rag­top. Can’t say we’ve ever seen that be­fore.

The in­side of Rob’s Chevy de­vi­ates from the stan­dard dash­board lay­out in fa­vor of a 1960 Im­pala dash­board, which re­tains the orig­i­nal vents for use with a Vin­tage Air sys­tem. The up­hol­stery will be taken care of by Do­minic Dominguez, aka “Dbomb53.”

This big ol’ tub of awe­some­ness will be pow­ered by a built LS6, which is es­ti­mated to put out about 550-hp to the wheels. Stop­ping said big ol’ tub of awe­some­ness are front and rear big brake kits from Mc­gaughy’s.

Watch out for the com­pleted ride at SEMA 2017.
