Try American Truck Historical Society. (ATHS).
It looks to me that Andy is in Austria not Australia.

They say money can't buy happiness. It can buy old Chevy trucks though. Same thing.

I feel your pain. I still have family in Germany. My cousin is interested in old cars, motorcycles, and piloting...but the European governments seem to make everything as complicated as possible, not to mention expensive!

There is a large antique mall in my town, and there are often old magazines for sale. I will go there this afternoon, and see if I can find anything useful.

Keep the Faith! Someone here can surely find what you need!

Street Rodder magazine and Street Scene from the NSRA would be a couple of good sources for '38 Chevy trucks with V8 engines in them


'66 C60 body, '97 C6500 chassis, '07 LBZ Duramax with Allison 1000

No luck with any of the old magazines at the antique mall. I'll check if my local library has any old issues of car magazines.

I see you are still having problems. I do have pictures from a 1970 Hot Rod magazine that I will forward to you. If that does not work I would be happy to register it with the State of Florida. It will be legal and have no problems I have done this many times with what is called (homemade titles). It is completely legal ( I know because I'm still associated with the State of Florida Tax Collector). All that needs to be done is I need your weight and motor number to register as a homemade vehicle. This is completely legal and above board. You need to allow me to have Power of Attorney for this transaction which will let me work on your behalf ONLY for this transaction. I have done this before for friends in Canada and England. Glad to do it. However you need to know that for a day I own your truck. I can send you a Florida insurance bond which will cost around $60.00. This way you and I are insured, I will fax you the copy. Doc.

Hi Martin,

I just today came across this. I actually ran a V8 in my '36 PU in the 1960s but I don't have any 1970s or 1980s documentation of others doing that. He may be able to find a magazine article documenting an engine swap like that. My computer skills are not up to that task however.
