OVERVIEW
Custom Classic Trucks magazine, published by Petersen Publishing Company, was started in response to growing trends and interest in restoring or customizing classic pickup trucks from the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. It was especially focused on Ford and Chevrolet trucks.

Originally titled Custom & Classic Trucks, the ampersand was dropped with the April, 1996 issue. But it remained a bi-monthly title through the time period covered on this website.

Content included events and shows, "how-to" technical articles, and featured show trucks as well as work-in-progress and completed owner vehicles. It competed with similar content and an earlier market entrant from McMullen-Yee entitled Truckin Classic Trucks. Both titles would remain competitors for several years, although by 1996 they were in the same corporate entity, K-III Communications (later Primedia).

PUBLICATION DATA:
Petersen reported net paid circulation data to Gale Research in 1998. Monthly net paid circulation was 16,600, and it outsold McMullen's Truckin Classic Trucks.

CONTENT COMPLETENESS:
The title was published continuously until 2014, but only content through 2000 is included at this time. All cover images are complete.
