We first saw the Kosmic Outcast at last year’s SEMA show in Las Vegas. It was kind of hard not to notice this 1940 pickup with a lime green color and a Ed Roth vibe. Now we learn it will be seen in Indianapolis at the upcoming Hotrod and Restoration Trade Show. The Kosmic Outcast is billed as “An Intergalactic Weapon of Destruction”
It’s always nice to see cars that were at the SEMA show being featured at other car events. It helps spread the wealth for car enthusiasts who can’t make it out to the SEMA Show.
Kosmic Outcast Builder
This beauty was built by Hot Rod Chassis & Cycle in Addison, IL and shows their talent and eye for perfection. Plus it is hard to figure out what year this was originally, when you learn about all the parts borrowed from other cars like:

Body modifications to the pickup include a 5-inch chop, 6-inch section,
- ’34 Chevy truck cowl
- ’57 Chevy hood skin
- ’34 Ford Tudor rear window
- ’57 Olds dash
- ’60 Pontiac quarters
- ’60 Plymouth Valiant tailgate and
- ’53 Ford truck grille.
When you look at the interior, you have got to be floored. Not sure how comfortable it is but this is a homage to Ed Roth for sure!
The pick up, if you can still call it that, is motoring around on a Olds Rocket 371 with a TKO600 tranny. It is sure to be a hit at this upcoming show and many more!
