Theme Tuesdays: Chevy Luv Trucks

1

As a Chevy truck fan it is actually a little embarrassing that it has taken me so long to dedicate a Theme Tuesday to Chevy’s first minitruck even the fact that I have not seen a Luv in the metal in roughly three years is no excuse.

Designed and built by Isuzu these trucks look like nothing else with the Chevy bow tie which, combined with the unique name, only helps make this truck more memorable. Sadly rust claimed more than it’s fair share of these but they still have a fairly large following.

We’ll start thus one-off vintage and work newer, and what’s some vintage without a 70’s Street Machine styled rendition?

Lifted trucks don’t get posted much around here so the exceptions to the rule are kind of awesome. Case in point Mickey Thompson’s Marine Luv

Have to love the gas pedal that allowed him to literally stand on the accelerator

Also check out the extremely creative throttle cable routing, more info on this truck can be found here

I’m not sure what’s up with the BMW roundell but this Luv is wearing a rectangle headlight conversion that was popular at the time

This build is several years old, and from an old Mini Truckin’ feature

From this angle these trucks really do look more like an Import than a Chevy

This truck actually totally inspired this post, love the different styling and those wheels are outstanding

Attentive readers will recognize this frame from a previous post

The frame sure does lay this Luv out hard

This truck too has been posted years ago

But at that point I’m pretty sure this had yet to make its way inside, yep LS In Everything even Luvs

Close things out with a Luv built to slide, because who doesn’t Luv tire smoke?

Is there a cool Luv build I forgot? Let me know in the comments below.
