When they went to load the shop’s Hot Rod Truck for the Milwaukee World of Wheels, the guys from Street Works Hot Rods discovered that it was so ground hugging that they had to put it on a low-boy trailer to get it onto their ramp for transport.

Nicknamed the "Devil’s Beast," the gold truck that started life as a ’48 Ford F-1 has been chopped, channeled, sectioned and narrowed into a one-of-a-kind hot rod rig that illustrates the Waukesha, Wis., shop’s imagination and talent. 

The truck features a custom-built frame and chassis with a Winter’s custom quick-change rear end, custom spindle mount wheels and suicide brakes.  The belly mount radiator utilizes the frame rails for cooling.

A 500-cid big-block Chevy V-8 with a blower provides power. It is fitted with a Hilborn four-stack mechanical fuel injection system. The dash, interior, cargo box and just about everything else on the truck are custom crafted.

The Biblical name comes from the Book of Revelations 12:12, “Woe to you on Earth and Sea, for the Devil sends his beast with wrath, because he knows his time is short Let him who hath understanding reckon the number of the Beast, for it is a human number. Its number is six hundred and sixty-six.”
