Here at autoevolution we love coachbuilding. Our passion for this art has become even stronger over the years. This is because the creations that belonged to this segment come to offer a unique approach in today’s globalization-obsessed market.

Today, we are going to present you one very interesting example of contemporary coachbuilding. You can call this aftermarket conversion or whatever, it doesn’t matter - it’s awesome!

Lil Big Rig from Nashville, Tennessee is a company that is keen on giving used pickups a new, shining second life. The team of enthusiasts is using pick-up trucks as a base for building scale replicas of big trucks, as pickuptrucks.com reports. Yes, we’re talking about mini semi-tractors here.

Enthusiasts can have their 1980s-1990s two-wheel-drive Ford F-250, long-bed full-size Chevrolet pickup, belonging to the 1973-1987 model years and coming in a four-wheel-drive or two-wheel-drive form or 1994-2003 Dodge Ram standard cab pick-up (4x2 or 4x4) converted into a mini big rig for around $13,000.

The body of the vehicle is replaced with a fibergalss one that uses a Peterbilt or Kenworth design. Thus, the vehicle gets a new cab and front fenders. The company also modifies the rear end of the pick-up, fitting the vehicle with two axles in order to give it a proper appearance. Just to have an idea, the Lil Big creations measure about 5 feet (1.52 meters) in height.

The story is continued in the interior: the cabin gets a complete makeover, which can even include a bed. However, the resulting vehicles are not “all show and no go” , as they can be fitted with a Chevy 454 big-block V8.
