From Chird :

This is my 1954 Chevy 3100 5-Window. I purchased this Advance Design Chevrolet in June 2005 with the original 235 6 cylinder engine, 3 on the column transmission, and drivetrain.

Initial modifications included conversion to a 1985 Camaro 350 engine, 1985 S-10 frame, TH700R4 Trans, 1983 Camaro rear axle [ see details ] , Aerostar Van Shifter, frame/cab mount kit from AD-Engineering.

The first Chevrolet truck was the 1918 Model 490 Light Delivery. The half-ton rated 490 Light Delivery was a chassis cowl only based on the 490 auto. A chassis cowl included the chassis with engine, transmission and the front sheet metal which comprised the hood, front fenders, grille and headlights. Its instrument panel, steering wheel, foot pedals and shift lever were exactly the same as the cars.

For lots more information, including the Operators Manual and Shop Manual, see Chird's web site on the '54!
