(from Joe Greeves &
Super Stepside) This 'truck' is not what it appears to be.
Like the El Camino, it combines the luxury of a passenger car with
the utility of a light pickup. The four-piece Super Stepside
fiberglass kit converted this 1989 Chevrolet Caprice four-door sedan
into a Corvette- styled pickup truck. (See
www.superstepside.com for details) In addition to its custom
body, it's loaded with extras to include an air suspension, 15
speaker Blaupunkt stereo, DVD with flip face monitor and sun visor
monitors, GPS satellite navigation and Serius satellite radio,
Dakota Digital dash, and Honda bucket seats. StreetGlow orange neon
inside and out create a light show when the sun goes down while the
House of Kolor Tangelo Pearl and black makes sure the truck never
travels anywhere unnoticed. KMC "SS" 20s & 22s get it rolling in
style. The bed is oak and sports a full-size 20 inch spare along
with a separate compartment for the jack, jack stands, and second
Optima battery. A Pace-Edwards electric tonneau cover opens with a
remote, provides vault-like security, and is strong enough to easily
support a Bikini model.
Owner Joe Greeves is a retired Marine Colonel as well as an active
photojournalist since 1974. He writes for 14 different automotive,
stereo, and kit car magazines, published an average of 10 to 12
times every month. His Super Stepside has been featured in ten
magazines including publications in London, Australia, and Canada.
You can see the truck in person on the 2006 World of Wheels tour.
