Fans of old-school Chevy trucks will probably like the work being done at Rtech Fabrications – an Idaho restoration shop that specializes in 1967-1972 GM trucks.
Rtech claims to be able to do it all, from frame-off work, specialized builds, custom upgrades, and more – all in the name of creating a restored Chevy truck that looks the part and does the part, too.
Here’s a brief look at some of Rtech’s impressive creations, which – we should mention – do not come cheap.
The Ponderosa features the same classic look of the ’64-’66 Chevy trucks, but with extra legroom thanks to the two additional rear doors and backseat.
This build is sitting on 37-inch Nitto Trail Grapplers riding on 5165 series Bilstein shocks. The axles are Dana 60 dually. Drilled and slotted rotors with high-performance brake pads will stop anything between them.
The Ponderosa is no small truck, either. It sits 8 feet tall and 20 feet long. The custom green paint will have it shining at any car show. Pricing starts at a $125,000.
The GM Crew Cab
Rtech took the clean, classic look of the 1967 to 1972 Chevy/GMC truck and turned it into a factory-looking Crew Cab with functional rear doors. The shop also builds the Texas Longhorn, which provides an additional seven inches of leg room in the back for added comfort. Base models start at $95,000.
The Drill Sergeant is unique in design thanks to the instantly-noticeable jerrycans on each side of the bed. It features a military sand color to give the appearance of one mean truck.
But it can back up the looks with brawn: the 4×4 truck has a 350 CC motor, power steering, power brakes, custom aluminum wheels, custom front and rear bumper, running boards, and custom suspension. The starting base price is $45,000 for a similar style of truck.
This 1972 Chevy K50 Crew Cab started out as a C50 standard cab. This award-winning truck is equipped with custom rear doors, a sunroof, custom bumpers, running boards, tilt bed, and a central HVAC system.
Strangely, Rtech decided to use a Cummins diesel instead of a GM Duramax. Large, 40-inch Nitto Trail Grapplers put the power to the ground. The custom interior features an eye-catching highlander plaid seat trim, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a double din dash.
Pricing starts at $150,000 for a base model K50 Crew Cab.
