1955 Chevy 1st and 2nd Series Trucks
This is an exact replica of the famous Barris custom, “Kopper Kart“. It took a group of us 3,100 hours to build over a 17-month period. It debuted at the Detroit Autorama 2008, fifty years after the original. It is chopped and sectioned, it has Studebaker pans on the front and rear, a Mercury grill, and many other modifications. It will be at the Grand National Auto Show and other west coast shows in January ’09
