Low-Riding Chevy Colorado Roadster Looks Wild Before Going To Auction
While it’s easy to stick to the level of craftsmanship of a highly customized vehicle, the resulting aesthetic won’t suit everyone. This situation is exactly the case with a Chevrolet Colorado roadster that Mecum Auctions has in its Las Vegas 2020 sale which runs from November 12 to 14.
Using a 2005 Chevy Colorado as a starting point, there aren’t too many original components left on this truck. The roof is completely gone and the side window is now narrowing downwards. Suicide doors replace the original layout. The door handles, the tailgate handle and the gas door are shaved. There is no longer a loading platform, so don’t expect to use this truck for all transportation.
To sit so low, the truck now has air suspension. It rolls on 22-inch wheels that fit into the fenders to make the Colorado feel even closer to the ground.
While the exterior is certainly polarizing, it’s the cabin that is likely to be the really love or hate aspect of this truck. The look is straight out of the 2000s tuning scene. The interior features a burgundy, beige, and beige color scheme. The seats have snakeskin inserts and the floor is covered with a thick carpet.
The exposed speakers and stereo components in the door panels aren’t something we’d expect to see on a modern custom vehicle. A custom fiberglass center stack has a screen at the bottom.
According to Mecum’s list, this Colorado has made appearances in Mini Truckin and Truckin ‘ magazine. Now it’s on sale. The buyer should definitely have an appreciation for this era of tuning culture.
