CUSTOM TRUCKS AND AMERICAN HOT RODS UK
Jack, Marc and the team at Jack’s Shack build award-winning custom trucks and American hotrods in the UK. From sourcing hot rod donor vehicles in the USA, to shipping, building, fabricating, welding, improving, chopping and entirely reimagining - there’s nothing they haven’t done. And since opening Jack’s Shack in 2017 they have turned this lifelong passion into one half of the business. Today, our HQ is split, with one-third of the building given over to these incredible creations - the dirty side - and two-thirds reserved for the much cleaner production of our world-class VW campervans - the clean side.

CURRENT TRUCK AND HOT ROD PROJECTS
JACK'S 500BHP+ 1952 MERCEDES DIESEL-POWERED FORD F1 TRUCK
First shipped to the UK back in 2015, this complete one-off hot rod / rat rod machine has been some time in the making. Now widened, lowered on airbag suspension, given a one-off three-speed drag-racing sequential gearbox and powered by a huge Mercedes diesel engine, generating well over 500bhp, it's nearly finished.
Inside, Jack has crafted two matching full metal racing seats, as well as reconstructing the truck’s floor around a new gearbox and drivetrain tunnel. At the back, the new wider bed hides a bespoke drivetrain cage and an airbag compression unit - complete with in-house designed and built electrics.
The harnessing of so much power in a near-70-year-old hot rod has meant the creation of a completely new chassis, designed and built right here in Jack’s Shack.
OUR OTHER PROJECTS
While Jack’s Ford F1 is nearly ready for the road, work continues on a few other machines, not least this enormous Chevrolet cab over engine, set to become a monstrously large tipper - sure to win a prize or two in 2020.
As yet, this machine doesn't have a home, so to be in with a chance of owning it, once it's complete, get in touch today.
To get a better idea of just what Jack and his team can do, take a look at our JACK WHO page, where we plot out his early years' creations chronologically.
