This 1958 Chevy truck by Fesler Built is a perfect balance between old school and new school. While keeping it’s classic look, this ride is also equipped with all the modern advances in automobile technology and safety.
This custom ’58 Chevy truck is unlike anything out there and is exactly the kind of build that places Fesler Built in it’s own category of the custom automobile culture. Looking at the finished product, one can see why Brian Fuentes (#40) of the Oakland Athletics decided to have his dream truck hand crafted by Fesler Built.
It’s not uncommon in the custom Hot Rod culture for an enthusiast to be bias towards their favorite brand or style of automobile, but it’s hard to imagine a “car guy” not looking at this truck with a full appreciation for the time and meticulous work that has been put into it. In fact, I would say that this is the kind of ride accessible for everyone who looks at the truck to appreciate.
