Randy Weaver of Weaver Customs showed up ready to battle at the 2021 SEMA Show with a ’65 GMC short-bed pickup. The Arizona barn find began its life as a long-bed truck. Aside from shortening the overall length of the bed, Weaver hand-fabricated the front end and hood out of 18-gauge sheet metal. The 650 hp is provided via the 6.2L supercharged LT4 from GM Performance.
