    I remember so well, when Hot Rod did the article on Chuck's pick up. I was in High School, and thought it to be the most beautiful truck ever built. I read and re read the article. Then at the drag races in Tahlequah, Oklahoma, I was literally amazed to see the truck there, and equally amazed and saddened when it caught on fire. Wow......
    Where is it today?

    Thanks,

    I lived in Sioux City Iowa when this pickup was around. Was still pink and was at the car show in Des Moines Iowa that the Rod & Custom Dream Truck was on it's way to when it was totaled. Chevy dealer in LeMars dealt in new high performance Chevy's and Vettes. I assume he bought the truck from Bruce Geisler ,after he had purchased it from Ayala , and had it painted '57 Lincoln pink. Truck still looked awesome. Had it showing beside a new lowered red '59 El Camino with moon discs, slicks, and 348 tri-power, 4-speed.A few years later the truck showed up on a little used car lot in South Sioux City, Nebraska. Still looked the same but paint was cracking all over and chrome was rusting as it had been sitting outside. Still had the Jimmy 6 with 6 carbs. Wanted $250 for it. My dad was thinking about it but bought a '40 Ford Deluxe coupe instead for the same money. I heard later that the truck was found in a junk yard in Ariz. or New Mexico and was reunited with Bruce for a make over. Still had the nice rolled & pleated interior in it. Nice it was found and redone.

    It is truly amazing that Mr. Cushenbery designed the Silhouette back then, that even today eclipses everything else out there. The car is spellbinding.

    This car was created in Metz's El Rancho body shop in Shelbyville,Indiana, around 1958.the car is a behemoth. I can't imagine driving some thing like that. he also did work on Elvis's gold Caddy.word was he built a second Kookie's Show rod, for use on 77 sunset strip and for car shows

      your information is not very accurate. do some research before making such a post. bob metz did many of the modifications on this, the SECOND version of the golden sahara..barris built the first version. your other info is also wrong.

        My brother took me to El Rancho Body Shop in 1957 the Golden Sahara was being built there, it was bare metal bones but had the Split fins on it, a Bob Metz specialty. Barris was famous for putting his name on other people's work, The Black Beauty from Green Hornet TV Show, The Monkee Mobile, Dean, Jeffries did both of those. Bob had the car in his shop for over 5 years, It was hand built. Work stopped on it when other customers cars came in that were a priority. Elvis was a long time customer, Bob did work on several of his cars, from repair to damage to custom work. My brother was a friend of Bob's, I remember one of Elvis's Caddy's being in there. I saw the Golden Sahara on local TV with Bob and it was at the State Fair. Bob sold it to be used in a movie. It was in our local Newspaper at the time.
