1952 Chevy 1/2-Ton
Here are some pictures of "Silver." He took his maiden voyage today after 18 months and about 2,000 man hours of care.
He is a 1952 Chevy 1/2-ton. The engine is a 1962 261 bored .030, with a "848" head, Howards cam, Offy manifold with (2) 2 bbls and Fenton Headers.
I did all the work myself except the engine machine work and the paint. You can't see it very well, but there is an emblem on each side above the runningboard splash pan that says "SILVER." I made those from some old SILVERADO emblems.
He has 15 inch wheels and radial tires and actually rides pretty smooth. He will be driven every day, but won't be hauling any cattle or loads of dirt.
I really enjoyed doing the project and could not have done it properly without the help of all those great Stovebolters !!
