from Huntington Beach, California wanted so show off his '77 stepside. The truck has
a rebuilt Chevy orange and chrome 355 bolted to a turbo 350 trans with shift kit.
The interior features a custom aluminum dash with Autometer Sport Comp gauges, and a
stereo system, which in currently non-functional. Future plans include at
least a 3/5 drop, tonneau cover, diamond plate bedfloor, 1993 Caddy taillights mounted in
the rear stepside beams, and new wheels and tires. The body has been shaved smooth
by Steven and future plans for the body call for a Hugger Orange paint job with white
racing stripes. Keep us updated on the progress Steven.
Here's a wild
looking '86 Chevy truck. According to the owner the truck is a one ton with 4.56
gears. The 350 is cranking out 420 hp and is backed by a TH350 and 3200 stall torque
convertor. The body has been shaved and covered in an outrageous custom color
scheme. The stomper rides on 39.5x18x16.5 off road tires and 16.5x12 Bart
wheels. Thanks for sharing your ride with us.
Al Chesney from
Seaforth, Ontario, Canada, is the proud owner of this 1987 SWB. According to Al he has
owned this truck for two years and has done almost a complete restoration. So far he
has replaced the original 305 TBI engine with a fresh GM crate 305, added a TBI spacer,
K&N air filter, converted the exhaust to 2 1/2'' dual pipes with Dynamax mufflers, and
mounted the rebuilt turbo 400 tranny with shift kit behind the combo. On the outside
he has refinished the body in base/clear royal red metallic paint that has been accented
with new side molding, cab and fender well chrome, tailgate insert, rear bumper, stainless
bug deflector, hood ornament, and grille. The suspension has been treated to Monroe
Sensa-Trac shocks, new front coil springs, Michelin 235/75 R 15 radials, new wheel centers
and chrome lug nuts. The interior received no less attention with a new headliner,
300 watt Panasonic CD player, and MTX speakers. According to Al, "This one will
never see snow again!. Thanx to; Carl, Randy, Steve and Todd." Nice looking
ride. Thanks for the pictures Al.
from Barrie, Ontario, Canada submitted this picture of his '78 Jimmy High Sierra
trailering special. This pristine Jimmy is motivated by a 350 small block topped
with an Edelbrock intake, 600 Holley, K&N filter, and and exhales through dual 2
1/2" stainless exhaust. The truck, which was originally red/black two-tone is
now solid black. Future plans include adding headers or "Ram Horn"
manifolds and purchasing a new soft top. Jason also include this tip for all truck
enthusiasts, "If anyone has experienced wear or fading on the 'brushed foil' part of
the dash, go to a printing shop. You can purchase a roll of adhesive foil that looks
EXACTLY the same and sticks as well. It just requires patience to cut it out."
Thanks for the tip and for sharing your truck with us Jason.
This is the second
truck Joey has had posted on our site. You might remember his green with black
racing striped '87 that is posted on page 4. This time
he sent us a picture of his 1982 Shortwide. This truck features power windows, power
locks, and a tilt wheel topped by a Grant steering wheel. Under the hood rests a '96
model Vortec 350 with Edelbrock intake and carb. Exhaust gases are routed through 2
1/4" pipes with a Torpedo pack muffler and boom tubes (soon to be removed). A
TH350 backs the Vortec motor. The exterior has been painted red with black racing
stripes. Future plans call for tweed dash cover and door panels to compliment
the new seat. Thanks for the picture Joey!
