Cutworm Specialties built the custom vehicle‘s suspension, spindles, axle and lug nuts from scratch. The hauler’s rear axle and 19.5” wheels were taken from a motor home. Built for the street, the engine is a 1967 Lincoln 460 V8 with a Built c6 transmission and can reach roughly 575- 600 horsepower. The front spindles and brakes originate from a Ford Super Duty and the interior is completely handmade including the seat, dash, steering wheel and pedals.

The winning prize of the contest allows Greenstone and Kral the opportunity to prominently display their custom creation to more than 130,000 attendees in Las Vegas at the SEMA Show 2013 November 5 – 8. Contestants were asked to submit photos of their unique parts hauler designs. Entries were selected after careful review and consideration by a panel of automotive and transportation experts, and were judged based on functionality, innovation and aesthetics.
