1951 Chevy 1/2-Ton
Here are a few pictures of my 1951 pickup. A friend of mine, who did the upholstery, named the truck "Big Black" and that's what
it has been called ever since.
It was powered by a turbocharged 350 Chevy with a 350 TH transmission, '76 Nova rear end, power steering and power front disc brakes. I built it over the period of about seven years, doing all the work myself, including the bodywork and paint job.
I sold the truck in 1986 through a hot rod dealer and was told it was purchased by a man from Alaska. It was a very fast truck, fun to drive, and got plenty of attention wherever it went.
