Ever take a look at something that came factory on your classic truck and thought, “This is really ugly?” That said, we had the same feelings when it came to Custom Classic Trucks’ project truck – a 1956 Chevrolet. While we’ve got a full truck load of parts to install and plans to hit the weekend autocross, we couldn’t help but notice the underwhelming trim on the truck could use some much needed help in the looks department. This isn’t the first time we’ve decided to dig into upgrading handles, we’ve installed a set on a 1953 Ford F-100 and we’ve installed a door on another 1956 Chevrolet.

We got with Jason Scudellari, our resident Custom Classic Trucks (CCT) install-guru, who took us through the basics and explained that changing out the driver and passenger door handles on this is a no brainer. The stock ones are outdated, clunky, and look like a truck latch off something built in the 1940s. With help from Eddie Motorsports, we chose to outfit the truck with a set of 1967-1968 Chevrolet Camaro billet door handles.

“With some minor fabrication, these door handles were pretty easy to put in.” said, Scudellari.

We have to agree with Scudellari on the Camaro door handles. Considering that this truck is going to be built for autocross, it really only makes sense to give it more a sleek look. Stay locked into Custom Classic Trucks Magazine when we run the full tech story of this installation. We’ll make sure to go step-by-step and include you in with everything you’ll need to know to handle the install in your own garage.
