ANDREW McSweeny's Ned Kelly truck has to be one of the most iconic around.

Painted in the theme of Ned Kelly and featuring his portrait, it's not hard to see why the truck is named Ned.

While it's valued at $400,000, Andrew or Scuzzy as he is better known has stopped counting the amount of money he's spent on the custom work - but it's way more than what it's valued at.

It took two years to build and customise Ned, with Exquisite Airbrushing in Tasmania doing the airbrushing work and Scuzzy's brother Mick from Truck 'n' Stainless doing all the chrome and accessories.

This truck has won more than 150 awards at truck shows and they are now kept in Scuzzy's board room.

Scuzzy has used Ned to raise money for the Brisbane Convoy for Kids and it has been used for weddings and to give sick kids the ride of their lives.

It has custom paint, custom stainless, custom interior and Scuzzy joked a "customised driver".

This truck has a special built CAT racing C15 motor and features unique features like bullet switches on the dash.

There's timber flooring throughout the cab and sleeper of the truck, a corrugated roof and features air brushing inside the sleeper.

The extras don't end there the truck has a TV, DVD player, Foxtel, microwave and fridge freezer.

Scuzzy owns Scuzz Trans container transport which has depots at the Port of Brisbane and Casino and he still runs from Casino to Brisbane every night in Ned.

Ned can be seen at truck shows and at country music events with Jayne Denham.
