Joe Yezzi and his talented team at Squarebody Syndicate built this 1973 Chevrolet Cheyenne Super C30 truck as a tow rig for the company. Under the hood sits a 5.9 L Cummins 6BT turbo diesel inline-six with a 4-inch exhaust built by Big 10 Garage in Chandler, Arizona. Torque is sent through a Hughes Performance 47RH four-speed automatic transmission to a 14-bolt rear end. The truck rides on a frame shortened 4.5 inches with AC Delco shocks, C30 springs, four-wheel disc brakes, and Chevy 16.5-inch wheels. Metalox Fab extended the cab by 3.75 inches and shortened the bed 10 inches.

  1. This looks like a great build and almost innovative with the Cummins.
    With the body lengthening and the bed and chassis shortening, I would think the “sticker” would give someone in my tax bracket pause.
    A great shop truck that should be an extremely good advertisement for their shop.
