“Six months ago, we were three or four people in one corner of this cavernous building,” said John McGinn, Kindred Motorworks’ Director of Production. “Thanks to the incredible level of collaboration and shared sense of mission, we have a fully documented set of build processes and complete teams executing every element of vehicle production right now. To be in this position so quickly is a huge point of pride for all of us.”
Kindred Motorworks will return to Monterey Car Week this week and showcase its new Kindred pickup truck. Based on the ’47 – ’53 Chevy 3100, the vehicle is powered by a 294-hp electric drivetrain. With modern underpinnings and amenities, it offers enthusiasts everything they’d want from a modern truck – but with classic style.
