The Revolver Truck

Answering the ultimate exhaust question

Published in the April 2013 Issue April 2013 News

The Revolver truck began life as just another 1949 Chevrolet Truck; now it is a legend in the making. The concept started as a napkin drawing by MagnaFlow’s senior manager, Richard Waitas. He was trying to solve the ultimate exhaust question: What does it sound like?

“What’s deep, what’s raspy, what’s throaty and what’s not is different from ear to ear,” says Waitas. “‘Loud’ has many levels and characteristics, but with the launch of the Revolver Truck, MagnaFlow has found a way to provide an answer to the question.”

When Waitas completed the concept, his first call was to the legendary designer and member of team MagnaFlow, Chip Foose. Between the two of them, the concept took on a life of its own and in a matter of days, Foose had an incredibly beautiful and problem-solving rendering. The next step was to find the best builder to take it to fruition. Waitas and Foose met with multiple shops before choosing the team at CW Restorations.

Equipped with 8 rotating mufflers, the Revolver system provides a clear example of the sound changes without changes to the rest of the vehicle. In addition to the sound, the Revolver has a custom fabricated bed, distinctly rounded fenders and exhaust tips blended into the taillights. From the manifold to the tips, it is a one-of-a-kind build. When the rotating muffler mechanism is removed, the Revolver still has a working system allowing it to both drive on the street and race down the track. ( 800-824-8664)

Many can say they’ve completed a triathlon, but how many can say they’ve won a gold medal in the triathlon at the Olympics? Many can say they’ve flown an aircraft, but how many can say they’ve done it in space? Being one of only a few is special. It’s unique. It sets you apart from others and in the truck scene, only 250 lucky diesel pickup enthusiasts will have the honor of saying they own and drive the slick design of the 2021 Ford Shelby F250 Super Baja.
