The Sexiest Restored Trucks to Inspire Your Next Project
Back when Jeeps were Willys
When's the last time you saw a 1957 Willys Jeep Station Wagon? There's a good chance you never have, even though this model was popular back in the day and over 300,000 were produced. This was restored not even from a whole vehicle but from parts laying about. A Buick 350 engine, custom taillights, dual-reserve master cylinder and a jade-tint paint overhaul are just some of the features to bring it forward in time more than half a century.

About This Article
Do you know what's cooler than a classic truck? Getting a chance to actually rebuild your own from the ground up. Where some people see a rusted-out bucket of bolts sitting in a field or forgotten in a scrapyard, you see something else, don't you? Potential! A future! A finely tuned engine, dual exhaust and polished chrome accents with a slick new paint job you can see from space. That's the thrill of custom restoration and modification. You can't go back in time snag these trucks when they first came out, but you can bring them forward in time from the past and take better care of them than they ever got when they first rolled off the line.
A lot of time and a lot of effort goes into a custom truck restoration. It's definitely a labor of love, but if you want to see what the trade-off is then all you have to do is take a look through some of the hottest classic truck restorations we could find. If these don't inspire you to get into the garage and make some magic happen, then odds are nothing will. So what are you waiting for? Shift this into gear and take a look at some of the sexiest truck restorations ever.
