The “Pickup Truck” is as American as baseball and the cheese burger. It is as American as our flag itself. KC’s personal example shows what truly came of the American Pickup once it reached its prime. From the subtleties to the obvious, his 1934 Dodge 1-Ton Pickup is definitively true to its origins.
The pickup truck was born in 1925 with the introduction of Henry Ford’s “Model T Runabout with a Pickup Body.

Upbringing plays an important role in how individual interests are developed. What you are raised around, like it or not, strongly influences what you end up passionate about, whether it be towards or against. We all develop unique interests and personal taste, but the apple tends to not fall too far from the tree.
I had to push my own limits. I had built enough cars that utilized wheels and suspension to achieve the basis of their aesthetic. My E9 was a smash hit and turned what felt like every head it came across. It was easy to revel in the success of the car – the constant kind words and appreciation I received for doing something somewhat “outside the box.

When most think of modifying a truck, they normally think of a few different directions to go. One obviously being mini-trucks, followed by the old school domestic trucks which make their way onto STANCE|WORKS from time to time. The last option involves diesels, stacks, chrome, and this weird thing where people raise them… but I’d rather not even think about that.

When it comes to car builds, the reasons behind them, and the paths taken to execute them, I find that there are two types of people, and with them, two very different mindsets. There are those that build cars for notoriety, whether it’s for the horsepower wars, or just plain attention they seek – they are driven by the reaction and appreciation of their peers, and there’s nothing wrong with that.
