This 1977 Chevrolet Scottsdale 'Redneck Power' Pickup Truck is powered by a 350 cubic-inch eight-cylinder engine capable of producing 150 horsepower. It has a column shift automatic transmission, and front disc and rear drum brakes.
This truck was owned by Billy Carter, the brother of the United States President, Jimmy Carter. Billy Carter was the unofficial mayor of Plains, Georgia; he was an intelligent individual with a comment for everything and considered by many as a very vocal individual. He owned a gas and service station and this was his faithful truck. It had as much flair as its owner. His CB handle was 'Cast Iron', the same slogan that can be found on the door.
This is a unique, one-of-a-kind truck that amplified Billy Carters personality. It has been in the Smoky Mountain Car Museum if a number of years. By Daniel Vaughan | Mar 2006
