Rolls-Royce Dually Is The Poshest Pickup In Town

Tuning / Comments

It's like pairing a tailored suit with some work boots.

With the Rolls-Royce Cullinan, we can see that the premium British marque is not afraid to dip its toes into the high-riding segments but we doubt they'd ever set foot in the truck market. A company specialist in Florida, however, has put together a rather special creation that merges one of the brand's classics with the fundamentals of an American work truck. Bear in mind, it is not as refined as what you would expect a factory-approved bespoke build to be.

In an interview with The Drive, Jordan Wojciechowski explains that this creation is a result of a company that he runs with his father called Central Conversions. Specializing in Rolls-Royce and Bentleys in the Florida region, the pair conveniently had the body a Silver Shadow and a Chevy truck's dually chassis so he got the idea to throw the two together.

Wojciechowski admits that with it being a project car, it isn't complete as of yet but it is fully operational. "The truck was originally built to haul other [Rolls-Royces] on a three-car trailer," he explains. "It started as a joke that my dad wanted to haul around his Rolls-Royces with another Rolls-Royce and it eventually turned into a reality."

Adding to its capability, the decision was made to do away with the 6.2-liter V8 and place a Chevrolet 350 crate engine but there is already a plan to replace this with a 6.0-liter LS. We doubt this will be as extreme as Hoonigan's recent supercharged Silver Shadow II or Tony Johansen's crazy dragster build. Power is transmitted to the wheels via a three-speed GM TH400 transmission which is controlled via a column-mounted shifter just like it would be in a traditional truck or Rolls-Royce.

To maintain its traditional purity, the cabin of the Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow has been left untouched apart from some purple ambient lighting to set the mood. In older photos, we can also see the unique truck sport a pair of stake bedsides which makes it a handy carrier of supplies and parts.

Wojciechowski says that he hasn't weighed anything he has towed with the pickup yet but confirms he has pulled a 13-ton-capable dump trailer. To finalize the utility look, a set of 10-lug semi rollers with Rolls-Royce-branded floater caps have been stuck to the hubs of the donor Chevy with adapters stuck in-between.
