This as-yet-unfinished GAZ-51 Custom is close to completion and was built by a company called Grande-Garage in Russia. Little is actually known about the truck other than they took a Cadillac Escalade EXT and stripped it of its bodywork to create this one-off supposedly for a Russian tycoon with too much money on his hands. We love the outcome and can't wait to see the final truck, but until then, check out our galleries below of the killer GAZ-51 Custom build process.
