More pictures of my old truck

From Hank :

I always wanted a 1958 Chevy Stepside. Well, last summer I saw the guy behind me unloading this old '58. He said it was for sale and since the 1954 Chevy half-ton was about done, this looked like a fun project.

This would be an "old driver." The project was almost a frame up re-work with suspension, brakes, electrical, rubber seals, door hardware, windows, and interior.

The motor is a crate 350 with a Holley 4 barrel, electronic ignition, headers, and all the other stuff. Besides that, it is stock but pushes the truck very well.

A TH350 makes it fun to drive. The body work and painting took a lot of time, but it is ready to hit the road.

It's been a lot of work, but it's a truck that I have wanted since 1964 when I got out of the Navy.
