This is something i've been working on for myself inbetween jobs. Shot it last year, currently building a hotter motor. And just now figured out how to post a pic, hopefully this works.

What yr? I know its 80's but cant see the front end. Those ol chevy's are fun and cheap to build, compared to some others. Iam also interested in the engine planes. I just built a stepside for a guy awhile back. Those stepside parts can be hard to come by in my area. Anyway good looking truck.

Its a 1981. I bought a salvage title truck from copart thru a friend of mine to fix most of it. New rockers, cab corners, rebuilt the rear wheel wells, and fabed a simple roll pan for the rear, shaved stake holes, filled the bedside ends and removed all the trim. Motor is in, 355 with 441 big valve heads 2.02 and 1.60. Just ported the pockets and short side radiused them, port matched, long tube headers, elderbrock 750 vac sec, performer intake, modified hei. Hoping for 12 sec but have a few things left to do. Just got my t-10 four speed in from texas and now have to install. Currently a 12 bolt rear with 3.08 but will be 3.73 soon.
