From Jim :

This is my 1957 Chevrolet 1/2-ton. It's a factory V8 with a 307 from a 1972 Nova powering it right now. The original engine is on a stand awaiting a rebuild.

The truck was built right here in Atlanta. I bought it in the spring of 2006 and am driving it for pleasure until I get around to restoring it.

This Task Force Chevy is pretty much bone stock, except for an aftermarket gas tank in the bed that is bolted inside of a "fake tool box" (see the picture), and seat belts. It has a little rust, nothing too bad.
