Opening the doors unveils the custom bench seat and armrest with cup holders that were made by Rod Doors in Chico, California. The team at Castillo's Custom Upholstery in Modesto, California, is responsible for the interior upholstery. The bench seat and door panels were covered with ultra chamois leather and ultra topaz. The center of the seat back displays an embroidery pattern called Twisted Pistons. The custom headliner was covered in Ultra Chamois suede. The Daytona Bronze pile carpet brings a subtle contrast to the overall interior dcor. A flat, steel beige dash features a billet aluminum gauge cluster, filled with custom gray face gauges with white font. An ididit tilt steering column is capped with a B.A.D. 14-inch billet aluminum inferno/skull beige leather steering wheel. A Vintage Air Gen II mini A/C unit maintains a comfortable climate for the cabin.
Randy didn't install any audio equipment, he says hearing the rumble of his 350 and the whine of his 6-71 Weiand blower is music to his ears.
Whether it's a daily driver or a full-blown show truck there are always people to thank for making it come from a dream to a reality. Randy would like to thank his buddy Tim Pace from Oakdale, California, Roger Cigaar from Stoker's Hot Rods in Ripon, California, his dad Jerry Benedix from Oakdale, California, and his wife Kim for putting up with his obsession and passion.
If this beautiful '39 Chevy is any indication of what Randy has envisioned for the remainder of his `40's Chevy stable, then he is going to have some incredible show-quality thoroughbreds.
Randy informed me, that his son Branden who is now 8 years old, would someday inherit all the trucks. With seven trucks, Branden will have a cool, custom truck to drive every day of the week.
