The red leather interior was built by Chuck Rowland and inspired by the '02 Chevrolet Bel
One aspect of this truck which is much improved is the interior. Chuck Rowland from Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, gutted the factory interior-which was not one of its strong points-and worked from the floor up on a fully custom interior. About the only factory pieces you'll find are the gauge cluster and the steering column, which were painted red to match the yards of Lipstick Red Ultra leather and red suede that would be used to cover the custom bucket seats and headliner, respectively. The entire interior was modeled after Chevrolet's Bel Air concept from 2002. This meant that a new dash and door panels were in order, so Chuck used fiberglass over a wood skeleton to sculpt the curving dash, door panels, and center console.
The smooth interior look was continued by mounting power window and lock buttons under the dash and by ditching the factory steering wheel for a Billet Specialties Rival wheel. The dash is uninterrupted, save for the head unit, three chromed Vintage Air vents, and their compact control unit. The head unit, in particular, is from Kenwood and is mounted front and center for easy access. The new center console gave Robert Cowden of Tulsa plenty of room to mount the Kenwood subwoofer between the seats, and the JBL amps were mounted behind the seats.
The spun aluminum seat inserts were painted with a 454SS emblem.
Justin and Jim Wallace from Tulsa used Belltech drop spindles and coil springs to lower the front suspension 4 inches, and a flip kit with a C-notch and stock springs to drop the 14-bolt rear 6 inches. With the truck settled, 20x8.5-inch Billet Specialties wheels were bolted onto each corner, while 245/40R20 BFG rubber was mounted onto the front and matching 275/35R20s were mounted onto the rear. The new wheels allow plenty of brake to show through the spokes, so Alan went with a front and rear disc upgrade from SSBC brakes, complete with stainless steel lines.
