1934 Chevy 1/2-Ton Hot Rod
From Rick :
Here is my 1934 Chevy 1/2 ton hot rod. I had a fellow show up at work and we got talking about his truck (this one). He mentioned that he was moving and could not take it with him. After some intense negotiating, I became the new owner.
It runs a SB350 [ pix ] linked to a 700r4 trans. I am a running 2:78 - 8" Ford rear differential. At 60 MPH I'm getting 1400 rpm. To get it stopped there are discs on the front and drums on the back.
The front end is a Heits IFS. The dash is custom made by Wabbit and has Classic gauges. The seats are out of a Chevy Camero.
The real eye catcher is the paint. The fenders are black with heavy metal flake and the bodu and box are painted Abalone white. When the sun hits her, she really glows.
I spent the first winter fixing the wiring, suspension and interior. What you see is pretty much how I bought it. What you can not see is the fruit of my labour.
I do not know much about the history of the truck itself. It came from Alberta and was purple at one time. I have owned this truck for a year and a half and had to repair a lot of poor worksmanship. Now it is a real joy to drive.
I am putting it up for sale soon as I am looking for a 1955 Chevy pickup.
