Project Aberration – 1956 SRT-10 Dodge Pickup Build

 

 

 

Follow along as Project Aberration comes to life.  Our 1956 Dodge truck will be built using the complete driveline, chassis, suspension, and more from  a 2004 supercharged Viper SRT. This restomod truck will be getting lots of aftermarket power adders and tons of Power and Performance fabrication. Scroll down to see this awesome vehicle in progress.

We began project Aberration using a very clean and unique 1956 Job Rated Dodge pickup that spent its life in California. For the donor vehicle, we used our owners fully running and driving 2004 Dodge Viper. The entire Viper, driveline, chassis, suspensions, etc, will be placed under this truck making it handle and perform just like a Viper. The donor Viper is already loaded with goodies including a supercharger, coil-over suspension, full exhaust, and more.

 

 

We began the build process by getting the 56 pickup on the lift so we can tear her down! We wasted no time getting the cab and bed off of the chassis and the interior out of this truck. 

 

 

With the chassis out of the truck it was time to begin mock-up. Luckily we had a viper frame section handy to set the cab and bed to measure and check fitment.

 

 

We held on as long as we could, but it was finally time to tear all of the body panels off the owners personal Viper. She is in go kart form for now, but she will be getting gutted, chopped in half, and stretched soon. Stay tuned.

 

With all of the body panels off of the Viper it was time to gut the interior, get rid of the cowl, windshield frame, and test fit under the truck cab. 

 

 

After the cab was test fit on-top the Viper, we were ready to make some more cuts. We removed the outer rail and floor pan sections on the Viper in preparation for stretching the frame to match the wheelbase of the pickup. Stay tuned to see the Viper undergo some major surgery.

 

 

 

With all the floor pans out, outer rail gone, and all measurements taken, it was time to set the Viper up to be cut and stretched. We fabricated some bracing to keep the Viper nice and rigid while we cut and modify the frame.

 

The time has come to finally put the blade to the Viper frame. After all the measurements were taken, and triple checked, it was show time.

 

 

 

After the cuts were made, it was time to stretch the frame and add material in order to achieve the proper wheelbase. 

 

 

The Bed sides were removed from the bed so we could space them out to clear the wider Viper wheels. The cab and bed were set back on top the the Viper so we could get the correct measurements for the rear frame extensions. 

 

 

 

With the wheelbase alterations accomplished, it was time to add structure and rigidity to strengthen the frame under the cab and bed.  

 

 

Frame fabrication continues on Aberration. When altering a vehicles structure so drastically, it is imperative that the frame is made correctly to keep the final product sturdy and safe. The frame not only looks awesome, but it will also provide the rigidity necessary to keep this truck handling like a Viper. 

 

 

Fabrication work continues as we make new strut towers for Aberration. With the strut towers built it was time to get the body and bed back on to test fit. 

 

 

With the body and be back on top of the frame, it was time to figure where everything is going to fit in the cab. Take a look as we fabricate a pedal bracket based on the Viper firewall. Fab and fit continues on the truck as we continue on the firewall and the cab floor. 

 

Fab and fit continues on the truck as we work on the firewall and the cab floor.
