SHANE CRAFT, OWNER OF CRAFT AUTOMOTIVE, HAD BEEN PLAN­NING TO BUILD A SQUARE-BODY DUALLY FOR A WHILE, BUT ONCE THE OP­POR­TU­NITY PRE­SENTED IT­SELF TO HELP BUDDY CHRIS STAFFORD WITH HIS ’66 C-10 (“THE SHERMAN SPE­CIAL,” PG. 60, C-10 Builder’s Guide, Sum­mer 2015), Shane de­cided to al­ter his plans a bit and go with an ear­lier C-30 dually that he has named Night Train.

Be­gin­ning with a dusty ’65 C-30 flatbed farm truck, Shane has al­ready made steady progress and has col­lected quite a few parts for the build. His wheels of choice are 22-inch Amer­i­can Force

Dually Clas­sics with Nitto tires, and the chas­sis fea­tures a cus­tom rear frame sec­tion and cus­tom Chop­pin’ Block con­trol arms.

The com­pleted truck will wear a cus­tom-fend­ered bed for a much cleaner look than the old flatbed, and PPG Black paint will cover the truck from tip to tail. The in­te­rior will be com­pletely cus­tom, with brown sad­dle leather seat­ing and cus­tom-cut door pan­els and dash in­serts. The rest of the in­te­rior will be red to cre­ate a nice con­trast.

Watch for Shane’s C-30 to be com­pleted some time near Oc­to­ber of this year.
