My old truck is a 1955 Chevolette series 2 and has been an off and on project for a number of years. I found the old truck in a field beside a body shop north of Childersburg Alabama in or around 1990. I removed the entire body and restored the frame. I boxed in the front section of the "C" channel frame for strength and installed a custom front suspension kit from Fat Mans Fabrication with rack and pinion power sterling and disk brakes. The engine is from a 1986 Corvette, a four bolt main 350 bored 30 over with a modest cam and quadrajet 4 barrel carb. The transmission is a TH700R4 linked to a 354 gear rear end.
As you can see I have been painting parts an I put them on over the years but it all will need repainting when if ever I finish the job. Its good thearipy to go out to the garage and work on it from time to time and mayby one day I will be done.
