Troy Johnson of Brainerd, standing next to his 1937 Chevy truck, is the owner of Troy's Toy Shop, which restores classic automobiles. Johnson has been in business for 15 years but relocated to Brainerd last August from Rogers.
Johnson started restoration on the truck in 1986 and still needs to complete the inside head liner, carpet and door panels. Johnson used multi-tone Martin Sr. paint for the truck.

Johnson wanted to make the truck unique so he installed in the truck box an Oldsmoblie Toranado drive train engine that is 455 cubic inch with a 671 Detroit Super Charger with approximately 600 horse. The truck also has four-wheel disk breaks and soon will have four-wheel steering.
