American Truck Mag
From the Editors of both Custom Classic Trucks and its sister publication Classic Trucks in conjunction with our friends from LMC Truck, we’re pleased to present an extra, bonus issue of your favorite two truck mags! American Truck, a special newsstand-only magazine, is a great mixture of in-depth, useable tech and how-to articles and some way-cool feature trucks that one may not see in our monthly magazines. The reason being is American Truck magazine allows us to share with you a mix of not only early classics, but a bunch of nice later-model pickups as well! And since these post-classic pickups are destined to become the classic trucks of the future, we figured we’d take advantage of the opportunity and give you a preview of the cool trucks the future holds. Above and beyond that, American Truck magazine allows us to showcase LMC Truck’s huge late-model pickup parts and accessories too!
So, if you’d like yet another modified truck fix while you’re waiting for the next issue of your favorite classic truck magazines, we hope you’ll swing by the newsstand and grab a copy of American Truck. Everyone who put it together for you are sure you’ll enjoy it!

Stiff Upper Lip
Nobody wants their seatbelts falling out the door every time they get out of their truck, so Juliano’s offers a simple solution to the problem. If your hauler didn’t come with retractable belts from the factory, you now have access to this stiff-arm lap belt, just like OEM’s use.
This design is ideal for any pickup without adequate room for a bulky rewind housing. The 13-inch rigid arm comes with a 61-inch-long adjustable belt with a total length of 74 inches. They’re made exactly like original OEM equipment, so they look right at home in any truck.
The Speedway Motors Aluminum Master Cylinder not only boasts lightweight aluminum construction, but its main bore is sleeved with corrosion-resistant stainless steel to provide extra protection against the caustic materials found in modern brake fluids. Based on the popular GM-style design makes it perfect for a wide range of classic trucks. Outlets on both sides of the body (3/8-24 IFF) allow the master cylinder to be used in both frame-mount and firewall-mount applications, while the 1-inch bore size can be used with either manual or power brakes and comes with an as-cast body and chrome cover.
Weiand is proud to announce the release of its vintage "swing arm" style blower drive for their 6-71 series supercharger system. This drive style gained notoriety as the standard choice for front engine dragsters, gassers, and altereds of the 1960s as well as on Mel Gibson’s Interceptor Coupe during the 1970’s cult classic movie Mad Max.
The drive is composed of cast aluminum and comes complete with matching pulleys to augment the assembly. The drive kit (part # 7201WND) comes with cover, idler arm, idler pulley, and fasteners. Vintage 1/2-inch pitch pulleys in 33T, 34T, 36T, and 38T configurations can be ordered separately. The idler pulley (7203WND) and the drive gear cover (7204WND) can also be purchased separately for those who already have parts from a previous blower setup. Weiand currently offers 6-71 superchargers for small-block Chevrolet, big-block Chevrolet, and Chrysler 392 Hemi applications.
A Hot Bath
Heat your vehicle’s windshield washer fluid to a temperature of 125-135 degrees Fahrenheit and allow for quick, effortless removal of frost, snow, and ice this winter. Heated washer fluid extends the service life of windshield wipers by minimizing unnecessary wear and ensures wiper spray nozzles remain clog-free for a consistent spray pattern every time. Great for year-round use, as the heated washer fluid also provides improved cleaning to remove bird droppings, bugs, grime, road film, and streaks.
