A peek inside the truck's cab reveals a comfortable space with classic undertones and modern upgrades. Driver and passenger are welcomed by Cerullo seats covered in a cool gray leather. That same leather appears on custom door and kick panels. Climb in and you'll see the truck's dash and center console have been reworked for convenience and entertainment. Auto Meter Cobalt series gauges are cradled in a Covan's Classic gauge cluster kit. Within arm's reach is a multifunctional Pioneer head unit, plus control switches for the vintage Air A/C and electric-life power windows. The glovebox is gone, but in its place is a 7-inch Pioneer monitor. The supporting audio components are tucked out of sight; rockford Fosgate speakers transmit from the kick panels, while the amp and subwoofer are hidden behind the seats. lift either seat forward and you'll see the Rockford amp and 12-inch Pioneer subwoofer are mounted flush with the back cabin wall. The area is flawlessly finished off with a leather-wrapped panel.
Now that the tired '68 has been completely revitalized, Dan and Dottie Merrill know they did the right thing. Even the truck's former owner is genuinely pleased with the results. still friends with the Merrills, he had the opportunity to reunite with his old pickup. it was an emotional visit: seeing his faithful Chevy re-dressed and re-powered, he tearfully commented, "she always deserved better than i could give her."
