My daily driver is a '49 Chevy 1/2 ton, '56 235, "848" head, Fentons, 1-2 bbl H-W, '62 3sp+od, '57 3.90 rear end, the Math,.70 overdrive X 3.90 = 2.73 3rd overdrive. Tubeless 215 85R16 Michelins on stock wheels. Three hundred mile round trip last weekend, several 2k round trips. I carry occasional full loads of cord wood, engines, transmissions, recycling materials.

Stock suspension with high quality shocks give a great ride. Have added a front sway bar but don't think it was worth the money. I'm up on the interstate daily and am comfortable at 75 mph. No shakes, but the rattles are what I love about driving the old girl. You look in the mirror for your definition of cool son. I work with 20 and 30 yo people who pay more for their new car's monthly payments than I spend on my truck in a year. Oh, nothing stops working after 50 miles.

Regards, Cosmo.
