Ever wonder what a Caterpillar engine would look like in a Ford pickup truck? How about an old Chevy pickup converted into a tow truck? There’s no need to wonder, anymore, as the unique creations of Deboss Garage will return to the Motorama Custom Car & Motorsports Expo presented by eBay Motors. The show takes place March 10, 11 & 12 at Toronto’s International Centre.

The Deboss Garage YouTube series launched in 2015 when Aaron Porteous, a video editor by trade, was helping with odd jobs in ‘Filthy Rich’ Bosch’s shop and noticed Bosch doing a Cummins conversion on a 1985 Dodge crew cab. He’d never heard of someone doing an engine swap and asked if he could film it and post the project to YouTube.

In the time since, Deboss Garage has grown to over 645,000 subscribers and their work has generated more than 132 million views. And what started out with Bosch doing Cummins conversions has expanded to include everything and anything with a throttle. Diesel, gas and electric vehicles have all gotten the Deboss treatment.

The Deboss Garage booth at Motorama will feature two new vehicles, as well as a truck that’s been significantly re-vamped since appearing at last year’s show.

“We’re bringing the Caterpillar-powered F-350 back this year; this time it’s driving under its own power, so that’s something new,” said Porteous. “We’re bringing the Bronco, which is getting a Ford Coyote swap right now, as well as a full paint job, so it will look completely different. And we’re bringing our C10 tow truck, which should be driving by then; both of those will get fully unveiled at the show.”

The ’F-Tree Kitty’ is the returning build from 2022, with a CAT 3126 engine in a 1993 Ford F-350. Bosch drove the original truck all the way back from California and says the ‘F-Tree Kitty’ was built to be used as a tow rig for an AWD LS-swapped Audi Quattro race car that he’ll take to multiple races this year.

The ‘Juicebox Bronco’ is a Boss 302 Coyote 5.0 engine in a 1984 Ford Bronco that Bosch uses as a “local cruiser” for getting groceries, going out for dinner and spending a day at the beach. And the ‘Duramax C10 Tow Truck’ features a Twin Turbo 6.6 LB7 engine in a 1964 Chevy C10, which was placed on a 2015 bus frame and converted into a vintage tow truck.

The three vehicles that showgoers will see are very different from each other, which makes it hard for Bosch to pick a personal favourite.

“They’re all my favourites because they’re all different and unique in their own way; there are no other ones like them,” said Bosch. “I like the Bronco with my family, with the top off. I love the C10 because it’s just so unique, there’s nothing else like it out there, the way it sounds and the way it looks… we made memories with (the F-350) already, we drove that out of California…took it mudding, took it up the side of a mountain, then took it home and put the school bus engine in it.”

Based in southern Ontario, the crew is excited about Deboss Garage making a return to Motorama.

“It was a pile of fun (last year),” said Bosch. “It’s always great to support local and Motorama – being such a big event close to home – we love being a part of it and meeting our local fans.”

“We’re excited to meet fans and for everybody to see the projects that they just watched on YouTube,” added Porteous. “It’s pretty cool to be able to see stuff like that in-person.”

The Deboss Garage display will once again be located along the southern wall, in Hall 2.
