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.

CUTWORM SPECIALTIES WINS "RIDE YOUR HAULER TO SEMA" CONTEST WINNER

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.

      "hot rod"? More like rat-rod. And I'm not saying that pejoratively.

      Kudos to them for using Ford-sourced parts in a Ford body.

      Unique concept. Hand built. Ruggedly handsome rig. Amazing work. Fabrication like this is a dying art form.

      I see a lot of comments from guys who don't seem to know the first thing about hot-rodding. As the builder said, it's a different world. It's not supposed to look "factory finished". This ride is incredible. So it's not to your taste but why do you feel the need to disparage a project that someone else poured a lot of love, time and effort into. Go away and shut up.

      So whats the point of having it scrapping the ground and duelies? Is that how you rack up the hipster points these days?

      That welding is god aweful, my 8 year old daughter could do better, but it sort of adds to the appeal in a weird way.

        It's aluminum and the body is 100% hand formed. How you didn't manage to notice the quilted bead rolling, aircraft quality riveting, and seam finishing shows your ignorance.

          Aluminum can be welded nicely, too. I'm with William, it looks like crap.
