Fast & Furious Cars: 1989 Chevy Crew Cab Truck
If the copper '67 Chevy truck is the beauty of the opening heist in Fast & Furious, then this is its beastly brother — a six-wheeled crew cab Chevy from a matte-black hell.
Like the '67, its crew cab companion has been thoroughly re-engineered from the cab back to accommodate oversize components swiped from larger trucks. So the rear frame is all box-section tubing and the twin rear axles are supported by 10 links and four airbags. Power comes from a fresh GM 572 (more than 600-horsepower) big-block V8 backed by a four-speed manual transmission, which is needed considering this beast weighs 6,000 pounds.
The picture car department built three of these, plus one engine-less buck. One was built with all four wheels in back driven so it could do spectacular four-wheel burnouts. Unfortunately, that's not seen in the film. All the trucks have survived and are in storage. Yeah, we want one, too.
