From Jason :

           Here is an update on my '52 Chevy truck. It currently has an '84 S-10 x-cab shortbox frame under it that I shortened about seven inches. I added a full pos. rearend from a '76 Camero. The engine is an LT1 from an ex-cop car with the 700r4 behind it.

           The cab from the original truck was kinda rough and I had another from my stash of parts that is in nine times better shape. The downfall was it was only a 3-window. So I cut the corner windows out of the red truck and welded them into the new cab. Fabed up some cab mounts for the front and will make some for the rear. Then it's sand blasting time.

Thanks,

           Jason was part of (I think) the Lower Mainland of BC Meet & Greet -- glad we finally got his update done. He sent this after October (sorry such long delay). I'm sure he'll have another soon! ~~ Editor

From Jason :

           Here is an update for my 1952 chevy pickup.

           he original plan was to keep the red truck all original but the cab floor was really bad. After removing the box, I discovered that the frame behind the cab was rusted through. So picked up another cab from my parts pile and got a S-10 chassis. I shortened the S-10 frame, dropped in a LT1 from a ex-cop car, and made cab mounts. I am in the process of connecting the steering up.

From Jason :

           Here are a few shots of my all-original 1952 Chevy 1/2-ton (with papers) that I picked up for $100. I am now in the process of a full restoration right down to the numbers-matching 216.

           My wife was not impressed but now she is getting into it and helping out.

           My Dad has been collecting these trucks for years, so I have parts out the wazoo to work with.

Thanks,
