The Chevy Silverado Medium Duty truck line offers impressive capability to get the job done, providing a sturdy platform for up-fitters to add a variety of specialized components. These components can transform the MD Silverado into an ambulance, a dump truck, or a recreation vehicle. However, Medium Duty trucks like the 4500 are only available from the factory as a chassis cab – that is, with exposed frame rails behind the cabin to fit said specialized components. That means buyers looking for a 4500 with a standard pickup bed are out of luck – or at least they would be without custom creations like this.
Featured here is a one-off, custom-made 2020 Chevy Silverado Medium Duty 4500 4×4 with a bespoke rear bed. That means it has the same tall, MD truck styling and proportions as the standard 4500 Chassis Cab, plus the same powertrain and drivetrain, all of which are matched to a traditional rear bed setup.
As expected, this particular Chevy Silverado Medium Duty comes with a number of custom touches beyond the new bed section. These include a new underbody tool box that’s 36 inches deep and 24 inches wide, mounted on heavy-duty rollers. The exterior is also equipped with hand-built ground effects and running boards while a full folding bed cover keeps things secure in back.
In the corners, we find 22.5-inch wheels and wheel well lighting, while a heavy-duty trailer hitch was installed as well. The builders also added a custom 54-gallon fuel tank, upping total fuel capacity to an eye-widening 77 gallons. Inside, there’s hand-tooled leather upholstery for the seats.
Now, this custom 2020 Chevy Silverado Medium Duty 4500 pickup is up for grabs as Lot F132 at the Mecum Auctions Indy Fall Special event, slated to kick off tomorrow, October 29th, and running until October 31st. Just 600 miles show on the odometer.
