Theme

The name “Adel” is of Scandinavian origin and was coined by PJ Davis at Chimera Customs. That it means “nobility” is befitting of this project not just because of its imperial demeanor, but also because of the cause it represents.

Adel is a Resto-Mod Sport Truck with hints from the classic Trans Am road race series. The truck will be nicely prepared as a daily driver but will be ready for weekend track events. The vehicle will debut and be displayed at SEMA in a prominent location and then ultimately be auctioned to benefit the Austin Hatcher Foundation for Pediatric Cancer.
