BEHOLD: THE #TRUCKLA
- THE WORLDS FIRST TESLA PICKUP TRUCK
has been teasing a #pickup
for what feels like an eternity, but the model is finally slated to be unveiled this summer.
While it will be interesting to see what the company comes up with, one YouTuber decided to make matters into their own hands and create a truck based on the Tesla #Model3
Citing her need to haul lumber and dead bodies, Simone Giertz says she’s been planning the build for a over a year and decided to go with the Model 3 because it has a steel chassis which makes it easier to work with.
As a result, Giertz buys a new Model 3 #Standard #Range
and enlists a number of friends to help her with the #project
. The team begins by gutting the interior and removing the rear windows. After this is completed, they mark their cut lines and begin removing the rear roof section and carving out a #truckbed
The team then reinforces the chassis, before installing a truck bed sourced from a broken down #Ford #F150
. They then install a rack which also doubles as structural support for the vehicle.
The video then jumps forward to showcase the finished Truckla which looks surprisingly good at first glance. However, a closer inspection reveals it’s far from perfect as the third quarter window trim is misaligned and there’s still gaps where the rear doors were located. Giertz says the truck isn’t finished yet as she still needs to install a bedliner and lift kit – among other things.
