ONE OF THE MOST CREATIVE builders/customizers to come out of Detroit was CHUCK MILLER.
From his Ridler Award Winning "Fire Truck"in 1968, to his "Red Baron", "SonicCuda", "Rambler Scrambler" cars, and his fantastic Model Kits, Chuck was one of the most sought-after builders/customizers on the East Coast. His shop "Styleline Customs" was ALWAYS one of Detroit's busiest.
So in late 1968 when Dave Landreth, Vice President of Hurst Performance Research Center, was looking for someone qualified enough to produce a prototype of a Hurst/Olds Concept for 1969 he looked no further than his friend - future Hall Of Famer - Chuck Miller.
In this Exclusive Interview, Chuck & I go one-on-one in exploring his involvement with this Legendary vechicle, its original design, some rejected pieces of design, and its final version.
Chuck is truly one of the nicest people in the Industry and a pleasure to spend time with. Next time you see him at the Detroit Autorama, the Kustom Kemps Of America Lead Sled Spectacular in Salina, or, any other Event be sure to introduce yourself and meet one of the most knowledgeable builders/customizers around.
