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.
Cutworm Specialties won the 2013 UPS "Ride Your Hauler to SEMA" contest. Designed to showcase the creativity in the automotive specialty market, this is the first year for the SEMA contest. Cutworm Specialties took the competition by storm with the winning entry, the "Aluminum Dually Hauler". Built for Joe Kral of Columbia Heights, MN; this custom hot rod is the perfect example of metal fabrication.
Aluminum Dually is hand crafted with fabrication that "breaks the rules in design with loads of attitude", says lead fabricator and president of Cutworm Specialties, Jeb Greenstone. It took six months to build the all-aluminum body and bed. The design is based on the 1930-31 Ford Model A trucks. Although the rear axle and 19.5" wheels are parts from a motor home, the suspension, spindles, axles and lug nuts were built from scratch by Cutworm. Built to make the street proud and on-lookers jealous, the Aluminum Dually contains a 1967 Lincoln 460 V8 engine with a transmission that can reach 575-600 horsepower.
The SEMA contest winning custom hauler opened a great opportunity to Cutworm Specialties and Joe Kral to display the custom vehicle to over 130,000 attendees at the 2013 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, November 5th-8th. Needless to say, the crew at Cutworm Specialties is very excited to show the world how smart craftsmanship and skill can turn automotive dreams into reality.
