A Cool Old Truck

1961 Chevy 1/2-Ton Stepside 4 x 4

From Mike:

          Hi, just found your site. Luv it. Gotta keep them old trucks on the road.

          Any way, I have a 1961 Chev 1/2-ton stepside 4x4. Been wanting an Apache since 17 -- I now have one at 38 -- a few years have gone by! lol.

          I bought it for $5000. It was done frame up in 1990. I am restarting it. It has a 327 but soon a hi pro 350 engine, edebrock 2.5 alum heads, air gap profomer intake, demon 750 carb. Hoping to get 475 horse from it??

          Right now I'm re-doing the stock suspension with leafs to axel no blocks; posie rear and front, manual trans and thinking 38" swampers.




          Hopefully I'll smoke all four at the next car show??

          Anyways ... keep up the great work on the site.
