From Jordi :
The first kind of vehicle I have ever wanted was a 1955 Chevy truck. I always thought that they had the perfect stance.
One day, while going by a place in town (that is always filled with old vehicles), I saw a 1955 Chevy Stepside Shortbox parked up front. It was love at first sight. The only problem was that I didn't know who to talk with to find out if the truck was for sale.
A couple days later, there was a phone number on the windshield of the truck. I instantly called the number and it turned out that the owner of the truck was the husband of our neighbour's daughter. So we talked out a deal and I asked what kind of motor and tranny were in the truck. To my surprise it was a 327 engine with a 2 speed Powerglide transmission.
A few days after that, I met up with the guy and paid him for the truck. We then started talking and made a deal that if I would help him fix his vehicles, he would help me fix my truck. I have been working with him ever since and have learned alot.
I got my dream truck too!
Since the 327 is seized, I plan to put a 350 in it while I unseize and rebuild the 327.
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
