1955 Chevy Truck. SEMA 2019 Battle of the Builders Truck Winner.
“The TCI complete chassis was so much easier and better than reworking the original chassis. All I had to do was paint it, & install the body. Piece of cake! I did have miscellaneous questions, but the TCI crew helped me through them. My old truck sits right and handles like a race car. Thanks to TCI. When I do another build, it will have another TCI chassis under it.”
– Ken Brown, 1952 Chevy 3100 Truck
“The foundation for any built is by far the most important part, and we have really appreciated the firm foundation and awesome customer service that TCI has provided us. My TCI complete chassis is working perfectly! Thanks to the entire team at TCI for being with us from the start to the finish line!”
TriGen Street Rods built Model-A
“As builders, we value the relationships we have with our vendors. We have been doing business with TCI for many years. Their products not only look bitchin’ but they perform flawlessly while standing the test of time. Their staff is amazing and service is on point. We don’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone and will continue to do business with them for many years to come.”
“There are so many Ford Model A coupes out there,” said Bill Kenny of Trigen Street Rods, “it’s hard to do something on these cars that hasn’t been done before.” That’s why he said it was important to listen to his customers, John and Molly Welsch, for this particular build. “Mr. Welsch had this Model A for over sixty years and it’s been through many makeovers,” Bill explained, “even so, this car has always been his dream hot rod.”
Much like a house, a good hot rod build starts with a good foundation. “With any build like this,” said Bill, “there are always small changes and additions that come up, but we feel that we hit the nail on the head.” For this coupe, Bill went with Total Cost Involved’s Model A chassis with an independent front suspension (IFS). While, a solid front axle is seen as more traditional for Model A’s, the IFS provides a substantially superior ride. The ride is further improved, as the customer needs, since the Ridetech coilovers are adjustable in height and damping rate.
Even with its modern front end design, the chassis will still look as classy as any Model A build should look. The fenders still fit and the wheels tuck nicely under them just as you can see with Welsch’s Coupe. You also don’t see the steering rack and anti-roll bar since they are located behind the axle, again keeping with a clean appearance.
Keeping with the superior handling theme, the Currie 9-inch rear end is located using a four-link suspension with a panhard bar. The Panhard bar and anti-roll bar are located in front of the axle. This positioning makes for a cleaner rear view appearance without sacrificing better handling. It’s also set up with a pair of Ridetech adjustable coilovers. Inside the Currie axle is a 3.73 gear with a Ford Track-Lok positraction unit.
The wheels are a set of Foose F097 Knuckle wheels in polished chrome. The 17×7 front wheels are wrapped in 215/45R17 Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires while the 18×8 rear wheels are covered by the same Firestone tires but in 235/55R18. The brake system consists of Wilwood four-piston calipers on the front and rear axles.
Under the hood of this ’30 Coupe is a Chevrolet 350 SBC with a Holley Sniper EFI system. It’s also fitted with a mild camshaft, HEI distributor, and polished intake manifold to produce 350-horsepower to the wheels. However, that power must first pass through a Chevrolet 200R automatic with an overdrive. For an unforgettable sound, a custom 2.5-inch exhaust system uses a pair of Magnaflow mufflers.
Since it was located in the Racing Parts Company (RPC) booth during the 2019 SEMA Show, it was a showcase for their engine goodies. This included a set of RPC polished valve covers, oval air cleaner, polished spark plug wire holders, and polished accessories and brackets.
Much of the body is original to the 1930 Model A, however, Trigen did add many improvements to it. For starters, the grille and its shell are from a 1932 Model A. A 32 Ford also donated its rear-mounted fuel tank that sits behind a stainless steel spreader bar. The front headlight bar is made from stainless steel as well and a pair of RPC headlights mount perfectly to it. It was then sent to Auto Perfections to have its two-tone paint job done.
Inside, a pair of modified Honda Accord bucket seats, minus their headrests, are reupholstered by Henry’s Upholstery in Conjac Tan. Attached to the RPC chrome tilt steering column is an RPC banjo-style steering wheel. Classic Instruments gauges are set inside a custom-made woodgrain dashboard and go well with the Conjac Tan interior treatment.
The front and rear windows are all powered for that modern touch. Even so, you do ride in comfort with the Vintage Air air-conditioning system blowing cool air if you choose to keep them closed. Each piece of glass on this Model A was also custom tinted by Kotto Auto Glass for further heat reduction inside the cab.
Once it was done, it was time to send it to the 2019 SEMA Show and the Racing Parts Company booth. “The car was out in the public eye for the first time here,” explained Bill, “it was an amazing build and it came out better than we all expected.” The crowd certainly couldn’t get enough of the 1930 Ford Model A, that’s for sure. “With this build,” he continued, “we listened to the customer’s dreams and ideas through many conversations.”
Of course, some of the Welsch’s ideas were fleshed out with Bill’s experience. “The result,” said Bill, “was a very classy version of the Model A coupe created with many subtle changes and enhancements that help make this build flow seamlessly.”
With sixty years to dream it, the Welsch’s 1930 Ford Model A has finally become quite the looker. It was all due to their input and Trigen’s experience being brought together in one build. “We value the relationships we have with customers and vendors,” Bill closed with us, “we can’t thank the Welschs enough for allowing us to make their dreams come true and TCI for their bitchin’ and flawless products.”
Many decades went into this and now it’s time for John and Molly Welsch to enjoy it. It’s not only a wonderful ride but a marvelous vision turned into beautiful reality. The old-school looks of the Model A has modern features mixed in from engine to frame. It’s all thanks to Trigen’s experience and TCI’s engineering.
Apicella Designs Ultimate 3100
“TCI is a great company; they have worked with us to design a package that fits our needs perfectly. They are by far the best chassis for the money and the fact that they keep evolving and making them better shows their commitment to the hotrod community. Its partnerships like this that allow us to build our Ultimate 3100 trucks.” – Brad Apicella, Apicella Designs
The Chevrolet Advance-Design was a revolution in truck design. Apicella Designs Ultimate 3100 is the definitive version of the 1952 Chevy truck.
When Chevrolet updated their AK Series truck just after World War II, they wanted something stronger, sleeker, and larger. Their creation became the Advance-Design that debuted in 1947 and lasted until 1955 but was the best-selling truck line in the US in that time frame. These trucks remain popular today and it’s not hard to see why. Their rounded design was forward-looking for its era in such a way it became the basis for the design of both the 2003 to 2006 Chevy SSR and 2006 to 2011 HHR. For Apicella Designs, these Advance-Design trucks are the calling card of owner, Brad Apicella.
Through his years in working with those trucks, it all has lead up to this vehicle – the Apicella Designs Ultimate 3100. “This was a build I have been planning for a while now,” said Brad, “I have always loved these 3100 trucks but they are one of the hardest to build to a show level.” What he’s referring to is where he typically finds these trucks. They have lived tough lives working for the farms and delivery companies that own them. They weren’t a super-refined chassis. They were utilitarian and ertainly never meant to drive at the limit or even just cruise to have fun. It didn’t stop Brad from building them.
“We have invested a lot of time and money into developing a well-rounded truck package,” Brad explained, “our motto has always been ‘exceptional creations’ and I push our team to produce nothing short of that.” That starts with the parts he uses, which are all brand-new pieces using modern techniques while achieving that classic look. “I have to explain that we use brand-new bodies licensed from GM,” he said, “they are built from a jig in Arizona and that has allowed us to offer even higher-quality trucks than when I started.” Instead of trying to make a 70-year-old part look brand new, he just starts with a new product.
This is especially true for the chassis. Again, these trucks were meant to work and carry heavy loads, so their stock handling is usually less than confidence-inspiring. “Total Cost Involved was one of the companies that we partnered up with from the start,” said Brad, “the chassis is the foundation to any build and I wasn’t content with the ‘one-size-fits-all’ options out there.”
The ten-month build of the Ultimate 3100 frame started with a TCI built chassis that uses a four-link rear suspension and an independent front suspension (IFS). Apicella Designs then uses their heavy-duty specification four-link bars fabricated by Ridetech with their R-Joint Heim joints. It also uses Ridetech coilovers on all four corners for far better road carving than Chevrolet ever dreamed of.
To make it a true, “Ultimate” creation, Apicella didn’t rebuild an old Chevy 350. Again, Apicella Designs does not use old parts. So, out went that tired engine and in went a brand new Chevrolet Performance “Connect and Cruise” LSA. The LSA comes topped with a 1.9-liter Eaton supercharger and pushes the 376 cubic inch engine to 580-horsepower and 556-lb/ft of torque out of the crate. Fuel from the stainless-steel Ricks Fuel Tank is fed by an OEM GM LSA fuel pump. A Concept One eight-rib front belt drive system does improve the looks of the stock LSA accessory drive.
The spent fuel and air gets sent out a pair of Doug Thorley long-tube, Tri-Y headers. It’s then fed down a custom three-inch stainless steel exhaust system with a pair of Black Widow Race Venom mufflers calming the sound, but only by a bit. The Connect and Cruise package includes a Chevrolet Performance 6L90E six-speed automatic transmission. It finally sends power out to a Currie nine-inch rear end with a 3.89:1 ratio and True-Trac differential.
An ultimate chassis needs ultimate grip, so Brad wrapped the Raceline Del Mar billet 20×8 front and 22×10 rear wheels in Michelin rubber. The front Pilot Super Sport tires are sized in 255/35R20 with the rear in 305/30R22. Just behind the wheels, you’ll find a set of Wilwood brakes with a six-piston set on the front spindles that clamp down on 13-inch diameter Wilwood rotors. The rear uses a pair of four-piston calipers.
The body of the Ultimate 3100 is a staple of Apicella Designs. The body starts off as a Premier Street Rods 1952 to 1953 all-steel cab. The bed features a Mar-K bed kit with a push-button tailgate system. The tilt bed is finished off with an oak wood bed with hidden fasteners. The rear of the bed also features an Apicella Designs radiused bed corner kit while the front was shaped to fit closer to the cab.
Looking into the interior, we see that Apicella worked with designer Sean Smith to flesh it out. An Apicella Designs signature dash treatment is where they began. The air conditioning vents are flush-mounted as are the dash inserts. A set of Dakota Digital RTX gauges fill in where the old gauges went. Brad also added a Dakota Digital BIM module that connects directly to the OBD-2 port and allows the use of TPMS sensors.
Ron Mangus Interiors was then tapped to fabricate the rest of the interior. Brad choose to use Hydes leather, an OE supplier for Bentley, using their new market tan leather. You see this material used on the modified TMI seats, center console panels, and new door cards. The Sparc Industries Triple Crown Round steering wheel rim also uses the new market tan leather.
On the new custom fiberglass center console is a Lokar tap shifter while a Rockford Fosgate stereo system pumps out music above that amazing LSA engine note. “We got a little creative on this truck and ended up making our best stereo system to date,” says Brad. It runs a set of Rockford Fosgate 6.5-inch T4 component speakers with a T1 shallowly loaded into a ported enclosure. A Rockford Fosgate T100X5AD compact amplifier sends the signals out to those speakers while a Rockford Fosgate PMX-8BB hideaway control box and PMX-8DH remote screen is also located in the center console.
“This build was always intended to be our shop demo truck and allow people to see the quality and craftsmanship we can put out,” said Brad, “It was our way to show the world what Apicella Designs is capable of.” He then added, “Trucks of this caliber always push my team and myself to come up with better solutions to challenges we face along the way. It’s amazing to me how, even after all the builds we have done, that the next build seems to be even more exceptional than the last.” If there is one thing that can be said, they made sure that this truck lived up to its namesake.
“Needed a cool and heavy-duty frame and equipment to make my engine look and work good, so I went with a TCI full 1932. Thanks for a Cool Safe Ride. Running a 800+hp Ford Pick Up”
HighYellow 1956 Chevy Truck built by Girl Gang Garage
“We’re very pleased with TCI Engineering, their support team has been very responsive in making right the few lil quirks we hit! Overall it’s solid quality and Mario from TCI is a lifesaver!”
All Girl, All Original – Girl Gang Garage HighYellow 1956 Chevy 3100 Pickup
By: Carbage Online
After “Chevy Montage,” Girl Gang Garage’s Sarah “Bogi” Lateiner and Shawnda Williams decided to go more old-school with this 56 Chevy 3100 pickup truck.
When Girl Gang Garage made their mark with “Chevy Montage,” they knew their next build needed to fall back on the roots of hot rod building. Clean lines, classic parts, but a build that would still stand out was the plan set forth by Sarah “Bogi” Lateiner and rookie build leader, Shawnda Williams. The first task was to find the right truck that would work with their plans.
Fortunately, living and working in Arizona has advantages thanks to the drier, desert weather. The 1956 Chevrolet 3100 pickup they found was rough, but it was nearly all workable metal. Once at the shop, the Girl Gang Garage got to work with body work, filling in body lines, and replacing the wasted bed sides and rotted wood floor with new parts from Mar-K.
Once the body was to their liking, they set up a Mobile Environmental Solutions mobile spray booth and shot down the body with BASF paint in pearlescent white and Porsche Racing Yellow. The final step for the body was to install all new body gaskets, seals, and weatherstripping from Steele Rubber.
Underneath that beautiful yellow body is a TCI Engineering 55-59 Chevy Pickup chassis that’s been expertly engineered to work as an independent front suspension and four-link rear. The four-link is designed to allow proper movement of the Currie 9-inch rear for proper road carving while the independent front allows for a modern ride with minimal bump steer at its proper height.
However, it’s all supported and damped by a set of Ridetech adjustable coilovers that are made to work for both road and track. Hiding under those custom painted Detroit Steel Wheel Company 18-inch Delray wheels – wrapped in Nitto Tires NT555 G2 tires – are a full set of Wilwood disc brakes that give this truck proper and modern stopping power.
Inside, the driver and passenger share a bench seat but can’t help but to stare in awe of the design by Shawnda. The goal of Shawnda’s interior design was to complement the exterior with the interior. The polished Grant Banjo-style steering wheel fits right in with the hot rod theme while the dash and upholstery are color matched to the rest of the truck. Fortunately, the passengers don’t need to ride in discomfort, either. They can leave the windows up during the Arizona heat thanks to the Vintage Air A/C system.
Why would you want to, though? Under that hood is a Blueprint Engines 350CI Crate Engine. An engine that starts with a Small Block Chevy block that is decked and honed. It’s then bored out to .060-inch over. Once the rotating assembly is installed, they top it off with a pair of Vortec cast iron heads with a roller camshaft.
Girl Gang Garage then installed a set of custom valve covers, a Holley intake and carburetor, long tube headers, and a custom Magnaflow exhaust system. Keeping it cool, even in those blistering 100F days is a Ron Davis Racing Products custom radiator. The torque of that classic 350 small block is sent through a Thor stall converter and on to a Monster Transmission 700R4 SS.
With everything together, the Girl Gang Garage created another stunner of a vehicle and sets off a great start for rookie build leader, Shawnda Williams. There is no doubt that Bogi picked the right woman to lead the HighYellow 1956 Chevy truck after everyone saw it in the Blueprint Engines booth during SEMA 2019. We can’t wait to see what else these women will build using another TCI chassis.
DWS Classics 1972 C10 Shortbed – Top 12 SEMA Battle of the Builders 2019
Show and Go – DWS Classics 1972 C10
By Carbage Online
We all desire a vehicle that goes as well as it shows. This 1972 Chevy C10 built by DWS Classics does both with its Battle of the Builders Top 12 finish.
Let’s face it, in a perfect world our cars would be both beautiful to the eyes and function like a proper race car. Typically, to do either requires sacrifice of one for the other. Want a cool show car, then it needs to be slammed out with the control arms pointed skywards and that doesn’t handle as well as you think. Want a race car, then those bling wheels are going to be too heavy and you won’t have much of an interior left. There are ways around those issues and Darin Smith over at DWS Classics gave the 2019 SEMA Battle of the Builders a clinic with Gary & Brian Almas’ 1972 Chevrolet C10 pickup.
Much of what makes a car or truck destined for the track – or even the autocross course – work is its suspension. Nothing less than two kits from TCI would do for this ultimate C10. First is the TCI 1963 to 1972 Chevy C10 Torque Arm suspension kit. This builds upon the original truck arm mounting points of the C10 and enhances its road holding ability with the use of a torque arm. Gone is the bind you typically feel in a truck arm suspension thanks to this design that allows for better roll control without any sacrifice to the travel of the suspension.
Second is the TCI Chevy 1963 to 1972 Pro-Touring IFS suspension. This design completely changes the front suspension to something better but without drastic cutting and welding. First to go is the bulky steering box and its swing set steering system. This is replaced by a power rack-and-pinion steering setup. The modular spindle and bolt-on steering arms allow for precise handling and steering geometry during travel. It is the ultimate steering solution if you’re looking to set fast times wherever you drive. Best of all, it removes a full 85-pounds off the front end without the need for composite materials.
Both ends of the truck use a set of Ridetech adjustable coilovers for accurate chassis movements and weight balance. Providing grip, a set of Falken Tires Azenis 510 tires in 295/30R19 front and 315/35R20 rear wrap themselves around a set of Budnik Wheels. Those Muroc IV wheels are sized in 19×11 in the front and 20×12 in the rear.
The brakes, too, needed an upgrade and a set of Wilwood disc brakes and their master cylinder were utilized to get this truck stopped in a hurry. Wilwood six-piston calipers clamp down on the front rotors while four-piston calipers bite down in the rear.
What gets it up to speed that fast, though? An ATK High Performance 383-CI Small Block Chevy with a Hilborn Fuel Injection EFI-IR system set back into the chassis for better weight distribution. This iron block Chevy V8 is decked, honed, and punched out before a Scott forged crank, Dart aluminum heads, and Herbert camshaft are installed. An MSD AL6 ignition box sends spark to the Holley distributor and EFI controller. Torque is then sent through a McLeod twin-disc clutch to the Treme six-speed transmission. Once it reaches the rear end, an Auburn Gear limited slip differential splits it between the two Dutchman rear axles.
The body of this amazing pro-touring C10 is nothing short of show worthy. With the hood closed, the Hilborn injector horns are displayed proudly thanks to that clear hood scoop made by Aircraft Windshield Company.
The bumpers have had much more work done than they show. The front bumper is raised up, smoothed out, and tucked but also features a set of 1969 Camaro turn signals. An air scoop cutout between the lights provides more cooling but uses a mesh wire to guard against debris from coming in. The rear bumper is also smoothed, tucked, and raised to match the front.
Since the truck has a bed, there are many ways to take advantage of it for performance and bling. A custom mount was made between the wheel tubs for the polished CBR differential cooler. The tailgate was smoothed out but a set of Chevelle “CHEVROLET” tail panel letter were used to bring the logo back. Attached to that gate is a custom-made, two-piece aluminum rear spoiler attached by aircraft parts and 12-point fasteners. In fact, much of the truck features these high-grade fasteners and bolts all around.
The bodywork and paint were done by a friend named Fernando in Alfa Romeo red. This includes a set of rear cutouts for the exhaust, a custom Flowmaster exhaust system installed by Automotive Excellence.
Inside, you are greeted by a sea of red to match with the overall scheme of the C10. Custom red leather seats sit on top of a Rodeo custom installed red carpet. The center console features a set of 1969 Camaro accessory gauges to match the 1969 Camaro gauge panel filled with Dakota Digital gauges. Music is provided by a Pioneer headunit and amplified by an Alpine 200-Watt amp before coming out as sound from the Powerbase USA speakers.
“We set out to build a badass truck that was autocross capable,” said Darren Smith, “we also had the goal of building a show winning truck. To go to SEMA’s Battle of the Builders and place in the Top 12 is a great achievement for DWS Classics and the Almas Family.” If there was anything Darren would do differently, he laughed, “Start on it much earlier so I could get some sleep.”
Having the best of both automotive worlds is akin to the idiom, “you can’t have your cake and eat it, too.” It is usually impossible to have a show car that is also a race car. Well, we think Darren Smith and Gary Almas have proven that it is possible to make a vehicle that can handle on rails yet look good while doing it. It just takes time, planning, and a 1972 Chevrolet C10 with TCI components.
“The TCI suspension system is straight forward installation and clean look it gives the engine bay. It’s packed with performance and built to drive! This is the first time using TCI products and won’t be the last!”
“TCI’s IFS kit has transformed my car into a corner carver! It completely out drives my abilities.
