Mike Ismail’s ’59 Travelette (a three-door crew cab) bridges the gap between vintage and modern. Power comes from a Cummins 12-valve backed up by an NV4500 five-speed and an Atlas II transfer case. The front axle is a Dodge D60, but the rear is still the OE RA-15 (Eaton dropout) axle. Gears are 4.30, and the truck turns 40-inch Ground Hawgs. Suspension is more or less custom using Deaver springs at both ends and triple shocks up front.
