Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 8/26/2015 Jason Udy

A highly customized 1957 Chevrolet pickup named "QuikSilver" will be offered for sale during Barrett-Jackson ’s 45th anniversary auction in Scottsdale, Ariz., early next year. The custom pickup has won numerous awards since its completion.

Built by Hot Rod Garage in Sand Springs, Okla., the 1957 Chevy pickup took five years to build. Power for QuikSilver comes from a 540-cubic-inch big-block Chevrolet V-8 engine topped by a Crower eight-stack intake manifold with a FAST XFI electronic fuel injection system. The engine is said to make 650 hp. A Gearstar 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission backs the engine.

In addition to the extensive exterior modifications, QuikSilver also features a reshaped dash with a one-off gauge cluster and gauges, unique steering wheel, and custom gas and brake pedals. Additionally, Chuck Rowland covered the bench seat, console, door panels, and headliner in smooth and perforated burgundy Mercedes leather. Altogether, 10 hides were used for the interior.

QuikSilver has won several awards including the Best of Show during the 2014 Barrett-Jackson Cup competition in Reno, Nev.; the Mother’s Choice Award at the 2013 SEMA show; and named Goodguys Truck of the Year in 2013. The custom pickup was also in the Great 8 at the 2013 Detroit Autorama and on display at the Barrett-Jackson Reno Tahoe auction and was the centerpiece of the 2015 Barrett-Jackson Cup finalists.

QuikSilver will be on display at the Las Vegas auction (Sept. 24-26, 2015) as well as return to the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, November 3-6, 2015. The truck finally crosses the block at the Barrett-Jackson 45th Anniversary Auction in January 2016.
