When you think of a Rolls-Royce, you think of sophistication and class.

It’s not what you would think of as a car that gets put to work.

But in the world of modifications, anything is possible.

The Rolls-Royce Pickup Truck You Never Knew Existed

Jordan Wojciechowski and his dad John are the brains behind this unique creation.

They threw a Rolls-Royce Silver Shadow onto a Chevy dually chassis, put in a flatbed, and installed an American V8.

With spikes coming out of the floater caps, this looks like a blend of Mad Max and James Bond.

The Wojciechowskis run Central Conversions – a Florida-based shop specializing in Rolls-Royces and Bentleys.

Jordan told The Drive: “The truck was originally built to haul other Rolls-Royces on a three-car trailer.

“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.”

In the hood is a 350 Chevy crate engine, although the father-son duo plan to switch it out for a 6.0 liter LS in due time.

Just like a truck, the shift is mounted onto the column of the wheel – but this is actually where the Silver Shadow’s gear lever would be regardless.

Not all that much has been changed about the interior, except for some purple mood lighting.

The wooden dashboard still stays in place, looking as regal as ever.

Whilst the Wojciechowskis haven’t weighed anything they’ve towed yet, the rig is capable of pulling a 13-ton-capable dump trailer.

Car lovers across the internet were enamoured with this wedding of classy and practical, and shared their reaction.

One wrote: “This sweet ride is from my hometown.

“I’m the only car nut in the family, but everyone likes the Rolls flatbed when I point it out.

“We see this thing around quite a lot.

“It’s [a] daily driver and totally cool.”

Another said: “I’d like it 57.34% more if they sourced a dually bed and painted it to match the RR portion.”

That second comment may have been a critique, but it’s pretty nice feedback as far as reactions to customisations go.

The less said about the backlash to Nicki Minaj’s customized cars, the better.
