FROM THE VAULT: THE PROJECT THAT NEVER WAS—THE STREET TRUCKS ’68 TAHOE!
MANY YEARS AGO, WE CAME UPON A PROJECT THAT HAD BEEN ABANDONED BY A BUILDER WHO HAD MOVED ON TO OTHER THINGS. It was a 1968 GMC Suburban three-door that had been shortened a little more than a foot, and a fourth door had been roughed in. We were in love!
The price was right and that fourth door was already hinged and swingin’, so after going in halfsies with Travis Pruis of CTP Concepts, we dragged it over to Travis’ place and started making plans. Heck, Travis even drew up a rendering, and in the process turned it into a Chevy with shaved marker lights (making it a Tahoe instead of a Yukon). Airbags, a mild bodydrop, 22-inch billets, shaved handles, a ragtop, and custom stainless trim (no doubt from Bob Grant at Grant Kustoms)…
The only problem was, the timing was all wrong. Busy work schedules and about 70 miles of distance between the Street Trucks offices and Travis’ pad kept us from ever really getting started on it. Not long after, Travis found out that he’d be moving to Nevada, so it was mutually agreed that we should just sell it off. The last we had heard, it was on the East Coast somewhere and never got finished, but it’d be great to be proven otherwise.
