22st Annual Adirondack Nationals Senior Winner - 1st Place - Matt & Christine Halliday

 

Matt & Christine Halliday

1958 GMC Deluxe Cab Pickup

    It has always been a dream of Matt’s to restore an old truck. While in the search of a truck, one of our close friends Kerry Parker mentioned that he knew of one in East Randolph, Vermont that a friend of a friend was looking to sell. In 2005 we purchased this 1958 GMC Deluxe Cab Pickup. The truck was not in bad shape for having been restored nineteen years ago, but we decided to restore again with our own touch. This restoration took about eight months from start to finish. Gary Stone did all the bodywork and paint, with Pearl Orange for the main color and Gray for the accent color. The truck was complete by February 2006 sporting a small block Chevy 350.

    Shortly after receiving the last two pieces of chrome for the dash, Matt and his friend Kerry took the truck over to show the previous owners how the truck had changed. The previous owners said they would have never recognized the truck if Matt had not had his friend Kerry with him. On the way home, a bull moose ran right into the driver side door and fender totaling the truck. So back to the body shop we went for repairs, which were completed in just four weeks.

    In 2007 we decided to make a few changes, so we upgraded the motor from the Chevy 350 to an LS1 fuel injected motor. Christine, who takes it to most of the shows, wanted something easier to drive and Matt wanted lots more horsepower. Now pushing 416 RWHP and getting twenty-two miles to the gallon, Christine thinks it’s a perfect driver. For handling we added a 1996 Corvette front clip, rack and pinion steering along with coil over shock with big brakes.

    We’ve been coming to the Adirondack National car show for the last five years and always dreamed of having a vehicle in the show and cruisin’ the strip. In 2009 we finally got our truck in the show and cruised the strip to fill our dream. To win a top 50 award was an added honor. Now in 2010 to be picked as the First Place Senior Winner is a tremendous honor that we could have never imagined. Thanks Albany Rods & Kustoms for an awesome and memorable car show.
