Truly thinking outside the box, Colorado Auto & Parts has partaken on an imaginative, kustom journey. Posted on Engine Swap Depot, Gary Corns and his crew are building a 1939 Plymouth Pickup with a radial Cessna engine up front.

Protruding at the head of this kustom truck is a 757-cubic inch 12.4-liter Jacobs R-755-A2 radial aircraft engine. The air-cooled engine has seven cylinders and puts down close to 300 horsepower. Built specifically for Cessna 195 aircraft, the kustom truck has aviation cues written all over it, including several components from airplanes in the interior.

It may be a little intrusive for the driver, but it is drawing all its attention outside when this kustom rolls down the street.

Taking one look at this build, it just looks outright insane. More than just a flying tin can, it has all the imagination of a finely detailed die cast car. What was simply a dream is slowly becoming a reality for Gary Corns and his team at Colorado Auto & Parts.

The truck was named PlymouthAir, a fitting name nonetheless as it looks like it’s about to take off. Set to be shown at the Creme de la chrome show at the Colorado Convention Center in Denver, Colorado this November, we can’t wait to see the reactions. It’s an experiment that is a street rod, hot rod, and full-blown kustom, all at the same time.

To follow the build, check it out on Instagram and FaceBook. Will you be there when the team unveils PlymouthAir to the world to the masses? What do you think of this kustom? Is there anything you feel it’s missing? Feel free to share your thoughts below.
