Jeb Greenstone, president, designer and lead fabricator of the custom hot-rod company Cutworm Specialties won the inaugural "Ride Your Hauler to SEMA" contest with his impressive Dually Hauler. The car is currently being honored with a prominent display in front of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Greenstone said that his parts hauler "breaks the rules in design with loads of attitude," and we're inclined to agree. It's a mean-looking machine comprised of a pretty wild melange of parts. The all-aluminum body and bed are based on the designs of 1930-31 Ford Model A trucks. The suspension, spindles, axle and lug nuts are all built from scratch. The engine is a beastly 1967 Lincoln 460 V8 with a Built c6 transmission that can produce between 575 and 600 hp. The front spindles and brakes are from a Ford Super Duty. The interior is completely handmade including the seat, dash, steering wheel and pedals. And the hauler's rear axle and 19.5" wheels are from a motor home.
Greenstone and his team, who are based in Hayesville, NC, constructed the "Dually Hauler" for Joe Kral of Columbia Heights, MN. over a period of about six months.
The Ride Your Hauler contest ran from July to September and was "designed to celebrate the creative talent among the automotive specialty aftermarket." Contestants submitted photos of their unique parts hauler designs and the entries were selected after review by a panel of experts who judged the vehicles based on functionality, innovation and aesthetics.
