David Freiburger and Mike Finnegan of Motor Trend’s Roadkill web series are always putting together cool project cars, which are usually assembled with parts they’ve taken off other cars in a junk yard. Viewers often ask them how to do the engine swaps and various repairs they do on the show, which inspired them to create Hot Rod Garage. On this week’s episode the duo are repairing the 1974 Chevrolet C10 “Muscle Truck”, which they made some hack modifications to on Episode 28 of Roadkill.
The muscle truck had its fenders cut and wheel wells hollowed out in order to accommodate large off-road tires for driving on sand dunes with Dirt Everyday host Fred Williams. Finnegan and Freiburger reattach the rear fenders and replace the two modified front fenders, which requires removing the trucks hood and front bumper. They also put the truck’s street tires back on and replace the particle board bed with new oak slats.
After the work is done, Finnegan and Freiburger answer a few viewer questions and do an obligatory burnout in the Muscle Truck. Check it out in the video below.
