Presenting the amazing new 2013 Shell Heavy Duty pickup better known as the L-350. Up to now the Shell Car Company was known only for its light-duty pickup trucks(L-150). Well not anymore! Shell Company executives expect this pickup truck to be its most popular vehicle ever. Not only is it good looking but it has literally tons of innovations never seen in a 4 wide pickup truck. Some of its innovations cannot be matched even by 6 wide or 8 wide vehicles.
About this creation
The heavy duty truck has an oversized grill.
Gotta love the rough 'Heavy Duty truck' look. The truck is raised just like a Heavy Duty is supposed to be.
The back taillights were upgraded from the 2011 Shell pickup truck. Now they include reverse lights. The novelty is that all the tailight is plain except for a round bit of the reverse light which seems to peek outside.
The back tailgate opens fully!
"You've got to be kidding me!" is the reaction most MOC users will think to themselves upon seen this image. Shell Car Company has managed to provide accelation and brake pedals in a 4 WIDE pickup truck for the first time ever! I think the most striking feature in this truck however was the turning signal lever....mounted on the steering wheel column! offered for the first time ever on a 4 WIDE.
Shell Company had always attempted to have an automatic trasmission shifter mounted on the steering wheel column. Now its a reality. Not only that but the steering wheel is branded with a Shell logo. The dashboard is also amazing in that it actually has some added buttons on the right side. The buttons are for the black A/C vent on the top of the dashboard.
The engine was also improved. The engine is more detailed now. Notice that the red fuel injector spark plug part was carried from previous models. A noticeable upgrade from previous Shell engines is definitely the cooling system. The cooling fluid reservoir tank is more obvious now and has a black lid that can be opened to add coolant. The upgraded engine has for the first time cooling fans that have pulleys.
The truck has a red classic Lego springs suspension on both front and rear axles.

I really like it. I will make a redesign of it on LDD and post it. I might make it in real life. I like your adjustable seat in the other 2013 truck and will add it into my redesign for 2014.
THANK YOU FOR THE 2014 REDESIGN OF THE SHELL
L-350 AND ITS AWESOME! I SAW IT AND ITS A SIX-WIDE MODEL WHICH IS VERY ACCURATE. I'M PROUD TO SEE THAT SHELL CAR COMPANY LIVES ON...
Thanks for your comment Caleb. You do know that this is not my new normal light duty pickup. I will post my new 2013 normal light duty pickup soon. This is a completely separate heavy duty version. I actually wondered whether to put doors at all. But I chose to have doors because the doors opened well even if no brick is on top due to a triangular brick installed next to the doors. Taller doors also would interfere with the dashboard.
You know, it's cool and all, but it looks sloppy. The suspension system makes it waaay too tall. And the doors look too low. But if you could fix that, it would be much better. It's just not up to par with your regular work.
