ScottieDTV, the YouTube channel that’s all about “cool cars,” has certainly delivered over the years. From incredible classic cars to souped-up hot rods, Scottie absolutely knows what gets diehard car enthusiasts going.
A couple years back at the 2015 Street Rod Nationals, he really outdid himself when he found this sweet, one-of-a-kind Dodge truck.
The 1941 half-ton Dodge pickup truck is appropriately named “Sgt. Rock.” The purpose of building this monstrosity, as explained by its builder Stacy David, was not only to create one hell of an aggressive classic truck, but also to pay homage to WWII veterans.
Having also made an appearance at the 2016 SEMA show, the truck turned plenty of heads and it’s clear that David put A TON of work into restoring the vintage truck.
Per Equipment World:
Finding one was tough, but luck had it that after years of keeping his eyes peeled, David located a ’41 Dodge “hidden in some trees about a mile from my parents’ house in Belleview, Idaho.” The truck was missing the original bed and had a snowplow attached to the front, but David saw that the cab, fenders, hood and grille “were not only rust free, but they were extremely straight.”
David breathed new life into this rare war truck using a 6-cylinder, in-line, L-head engine that produces a huge 850 horsepower. It features a custom fabricated radius arm suspension with Predator racing nitrogen gas shocks with 14 inches of travel.Advertisement
In the bed of the truck is a mounted machine gun and on the tailgate is a painted tribute to all of those who have served in the U.S. military.
What. A. Beast.
