Randall Robertson thinks big ... really big.

Would You Pay This Much For A Corvette Body?

Would You Pay This Much For A Corvette Body? This isn’t exactly a budget-friendly deal ...Quite a few people love the look of a classic Chevy Corvette Stingray, and why not? The iconic lines are like nothing you find on any other vehicle around, making it a real standout among other classics. While that’s certainly true, you might be wondering why this 1966 Chevrolet Corvette convertible body is so pricey. At $18,000 for a body that no longer has the original Rally Red paint, it’s understandable why anyone would question the sanity in paying so much.

The Crew Cab is back! This episode of "Roadkill Garage" powered by Dodge answers one main question: How much David Freiburger and Steve Dulcich teach you the ins and outs of a nitrous installation as they attempt to make their big -block 455 Buick-powered ’66 Crew Cab Chevelle faster.

If the name triggers a synapse, it's probably because you saw the feature on his earlier truck, a '72 K50 Crew Cab one-of-none Pegasus unicorn that answered the question, "What would a contemporary truck look like half a century ago if today's market existed back then?"

Lifted, rolling twenties, and clattering away thanks to a Cummins swap, Robertson's Duke (a homage to his spirit animal, John Wayne) is the un-brodozer. Diametrically opposed to the countless C10s laying rocker at any given automotive gathering, it elicited strong response, inevitably positive even among those who usually regard brodozers with contempt.

There was only one problem with the Duke: there was really no way Randall could outdo it, or so they said, which doesn't sit well with Randall. As the owner of Rtech Fabrications in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, it's his job to raise the bar with each build. And given that the Duke won its class at the Brothers 19th Annual Chevy and GMC Truck Show 'n Shine (Rtech's second win in as many years), the deck really did look stacked against him.

1971 Chevrolet Corvette Heads To Auction With No Reserve

1971 Chevrolet Corvette Heads To Auction With No Reserve Get this hot ‘Vette while you can. One of the most-recognized versions of classic Corvettes were the Stingrays. They introduced a brash, more aggressive design aesthetic that has become iconic today. This particular 1971 Chevrolet Corvette is going up for auction at no reserve. Pushing this ‘Vette forward is a 454 big block V8 engine, which pounds out 365-horsepower and a monstrous 465 lb.-ft. of torque. With a Muncie four-speed manual transmission, this is a car that will keep you engaged and in touch with the road.

Growing up in Northeast Wyoming, trucks like this Chevy K 30 Crew Cab were common sights. The additional set of doors made them the perfect multipurpose rig for ranchers that Between the crew cab and the 4×4 system, I imagine this truck saw plenty of use both out on the farm and around town.

By the time we met a few weeks after that show, Randall had already formulated the next build. To be fair, he probably hatched the plan early in the Duke's construction. "We have to do something completely different," I remember him telling me. He was pretty sparse on details, but it was obvious that he knew exactly where he'd direct his crew for this next magnum opus. "It's going to be big," he assured.

Let the record show that Randall Robertson is no bullshitter. Rtech's latest, the Ponderosa (a reference to the massive, bright-needled pines of the west), is big. No, it's massive. But size wasn't necessarily what he was referring to. Ponderosa is big because it represents a significant departure for Rtech. "Until now everything we built was based on the '67-to-'72 trucks," he points out. "We needed to do something different." A recent trip to Rtech proves that he's broadened his scope to include Blazers and even square-bodies.

This time Rtech went earlier with a '66. The shop's stock-in-trade is crew cab conversions and the earlier body style gave Randall the opportunity to prove that the crew wasn't just cutting up Suburban bodies. And while the shop uses front doors to fill the rear openings (it doesn't make sense to reinvent the wheel after all), it's unfair to call them front doors anymore. Beyond the obvious window-frame modifications, there's so much work in hinge area that Randall won't let just anybody see what's been done there. The same goes for the structure that they build into the roofs. Top-secret stuff, all of it necessary for structural integrity.

Ponderosa is also a departure from Rtech's other stock-in-trade: 50-series frames and front clips. He based this on a C30 chassis and kept the light-truck front clip makes the truck much more relatable or at least identifiable.

Describing what Rtech did doesn't really do the work justice. "Chevrolet never built anything larger than a 20-series as a 4x4," Randall explains, which meant fabricating a whole new front crossmember and creating mounting points for leaf springs. Instead of using a frame from a cab-and-chassis that likely saw heavy use, he sourced one from a low-mileage Class A motorhome. To give the occupants a level of ride quality that we've grown accustomed to, Rtech suspends the cab on hydraulic mounts and uses reservoir-type monotube shocks. These bear mention because these components work together to make Rtech's trucks feel downright plush. You tend to forget that you're riding on buggy springs.

Building trucks from work-truck parts gives Rtech creations a measure of durability unmatched at even several times the cost in the aftermarket world. And using production parts—even when modified—ensures serviceability. For example, they're not likely to be drilled and slotted, but brake rotors from any parts store will get you home in the unlikely event of a failure. Same goes for calipers, axles, steering, and even drivetrain. Rtech builds its engines to spec, but they all share production components. Literally any truck-service shop on the continent can repair an Rtech rig, something that not all custom shops can claim.

Every successful company has a mission statement, something that expresses its intent and values. Rtech Fabrication's is succinct: We Build Trucks to do Truck Things. "A lot of (modified) trucks out there look great, but that's usually all they can do," Randall laments. "We can't bring ourselves to do something if it comes at the cost of function. Our stuff has to work."

Case in point, Rtech fabricated a crossmember to mount a gooseneck ball hitch in the bed. It's not for looks and Randall intends to prove it by fabricating a trailer to haul similar-era toys. But at the same time, it is for looks. The crew machined it to integrate with the bed floor design. At the end, the beauty is in the function of it all.

To call Randall Robertson wildly ambitious is to understate the obvious. Each of his shop's builds has outdone the prior so completely that it's hard to fathom what they could do next. Which raises a question: Can Rtech Fabrications really outdo this one?
