From Jordi :
Hey, just thought that I would show everyone my project. It is a 1950 Chevy Short box 4x4. I always wanted a old 4x4 and now I have one. It is a very fun truck to drive.
This Advance Design Chevy is overall in pretty good shape. The front and rear differentials are from a 1976 Chevy 3/4-ton 4x4. The frame itself is still original.
The motor for this old truck is a 327 out of a 1969 Chevy Impala. It has a turbo 400 tranny in it, too.
Here's the story behind this truck. I found it while browsing through Kijiji. I wasn't really looking for another project but when I found this one, I knew that I had to have it. The only problem, was the truck was pretty far from me. So the owner and I worked out a deal to meet half way.
This deal seemed good until the night before going to pick it up, there was a big snow storm and the highways where a sheet of ice. Just my luck!
So the owner and I worked out another deal. He agreed to haul the truck all the way to my house. I was shocked. So about a two weeks later, the truck came home. I have to say, I never dealt with a nicer man.
Jordi has several trucks in the Stovebolt Gallery: a 1942 Chevy 3/4-Ton; a 1955 Chevy Stepside Shortbox; a 1946 Chevy 2-Ton and a 1950 Chevy Shortbox 4 x 4. ~ Editor
