“Flamboyant” Kustom Divco

These little delivery trucks have developed quite the cult following recently and I must admit, I’m a devotee too. The Detroit Industrial Vehicles Company gave birth to the “DIVCO” in 1926 and through various partnerships they continued production until 1986. The design introduced in 1937 featuring a welded all-steel van body and a snub-nosed hood is the most popular of the DIVCOs.  These trucks are the perfect canvas for customizing and in the capable hands of the famed House of Kolor and Count’s Kustoms, the result is a sight to behold.  Wanting to add “something unexpected” to their vehicle line-up for the 2017 SEMA show, The House of Kolor thought the 954 DIVCO Model 13 truck would fit the bill perfectly.  Partnering with Count’s Kustoms on the DIVCO build was the ultimate collaboration to deliver the goods.  The end product, the “Flamboyant” DIVCO was indeed unexpected.  The bombastic lime green and root beer 70’s throwback design was the far-out element to push the already unconventional DIVCO over the top.  The DIVCO’s flat-head four-cylinder was replaced with an E-Rod 6.2 Liter LS which was mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.  Extensive metal work had to be done to repair 30 plus years of neglect and to accommodate very not stock 22-inch rear rims.  Needless to say, the exquisitely embellished DIVCO is finished exclusively with House of Kolor’s best.  Sayonara humble milk truck, there’s a new deluxe delivery in town.


Till the next time – Keep on Kruzin!
