The final step was to refurbish the interior, and after Ken Kelly rewired the truck (again at Kool Kolors Rods and Customs) Ol’ Blue was brought to Steve Holcomb at Pro Auto Customs for custom upholstery in several shades of gray. The bucket seats are from a late-model Chevy truck with a custom-formed console dividing the seats. A Lokar shifter controls gear selection while stainless steel inserts on the door match the console. Custom armrests incorporate door pulls and some very clever blue LED lighting that softly illuminate the door handles when the headlights are on. Steve also added blue LED lighting under the bottom edge of the dashpad that provides a soft blue cast at night, it is a very effective look. A Billet Specialties steering wheel tops the ididit steering column and all-new gauges freshen the stock gauge cluster. Vintage Air provides creature comforts and a Sony stereo provides cruising tunes.
And so after a year of work Ol’ Blue was back on the road looking better than new and turning heads wherever it went. One thing is for certain, the truck has come a long way from haulin’ hay. CT
