This custom 1955 Chevy crew cab truck was built by Dan Smalley and his company Pure Metal Works in Jackson, California.

Under the hood sits a twin-turbo Duramax LBZ diesel V8 built by HSP Diesel. The engine features a Callies crankshaft, CP-Carrillo pistons and rods, Manton Pushrods valvetrain, 14mm reverse rotation CP3, and two Garrett GTX3076R turbochargers. The Transmission reports the V8 makes 1,400 horsepower. Power is sent through an automatic transmission to a Currie 9-inch rear end.
