Jeb Greenstone, president, designer and lead fabricator of Cutworm Specialties—a custom hot-rod builder based in Hayesville, North Carolina, has won UPS’ “Ride Your Hauler to SEMA” contest. Greenstone’s winning entry is a “Dually Hauler” built by him and Shawn Davis for Joe Kral of Columbia Heights, Minnesota. As the winner, the team’s creation will be prominently displayed at the 2013 SEMA Show, November 5–8, in Las Vegas.

“Breaking the rules in design” and taking approximately six months to build, Greenstone and Davis produced the all-aluminum body and bed, based on the design of a ’30–’31 Ford Model A truck. With “loads of attitude,” Cutworm Specialties built the custom vehicle‘s suspension, spindles, axle and lug nuts from scratch. The hauler’s rear axle and 19.5-in. wheels were taken from a motor home. Built for the street, the engine is a ’67 Lincoln 460 V8 with a Built c6 transmission, and can reach roughly 575–600 hp. The front spindles and brakes came from a Ford Super Duty, and the interior is completely handmade, including the seat, dash, steering wheel and pedals.

The UPS “Ride Your Hauler to SEMA” contest ran from July to September and was designed to celebrate the creative talent among the automotive specialty aftermarket. Contestants were asked to submit photos of their unique parts hauler designs. Entries were selected after careful review and consideration by a panel of automotive and transportation experts, and were judged based on functionality, innovation and aesthetics.
