A 1955 chevy truck in great condition. No dents, no rust, not even a chip in the paint. 6000 miles on engine/trans. New wood in the bed. All electrical parts function. New tilt steering column. All wheel drive with high/low range shifter. Power brakes, power steering. Drives great, not even squirrely at turnpike speeds.
Drove it 820.6 miles the first day with 0 issues. The truck gets a crazy amount of attention. Every time I stop for gas I wind up talking to and getting my picture taken by at least 5 people... lol
Art Morrison 1955 Chevy Bel Air - Faster Than a Ferrari?
The Smoking Tire hits Supercar Sunday and the canyons with the Art Morrison

Custom 1978 Chevrolet K10 1500 Pickup Truck 4x4 Lifted
Just some quick clips of my 1978 Chevy K10 Pickup. This was my first
project truck when I was just a youngster in high school.
The truck started its life with a 400 small block V8 and a turbo 350 transmission. My father purchased it
from a rancher who was the original owner. I was with my dad when he
bought it and the old rancher and his wife both cried when the truck left.
My dad used it for many years as a hunting truck. When I turned 16 and got
my license, I asked my dad if I could fix the old truck up. He asked me
what I wanted to do to it, and when I told him my plans, he agreed.
I took the truck to my high school's auto shop because I had signed up for
an engine building class. We pulled the stock 400 and purchased a 350
small block with a 4 bolt main from a local wrecking yard. Smith Auto
machined the block, bored it out .030 over, blue printed it, and balanced
it with a 400 crank. The 383 stroker was born.
Keith Black flat top pistons, Eagle rods, Scorpion billet roller tip
rockers, 202 heads with over-sized 3 angled valves, Melling high volume oil
pump, 7 quart oil pan, Edelbrock Performer camshaft and intake manifold,
MSD pro billet distributor, Edelbrock 750 carb, and Summit Racing truck
headers made the beast roar through true dual Flowmaster 40 series
mufflers. The truck never saw a Dyno, but was pushing around 425
would smoke both of the 35" tires from a roll.
The first trip to the dunes with the new motor destroyed the original
transmission. It was rebuilt with a heavy duty torque converter and a B&M
stage 2 shift kit which barked the tires in 2nd and shifted very hard.
California smog laws are strict so eventually the 383 had to go and a
milder 350 was built to take its place. The truck was sold with the 350 in
it as seen in this video.
It was on a Rancho 6" lift, springs in the front, blocks in the back. It
had a limited slip rear differential with 3.73 gears. It had 17" billet
wheels and 35"x12.50" BFG Mud Terrains. The paint color was Dodge Viper
RT/10 Red. All chrome molding was shaved. It had an aluminum four core
radiator and chrome differential covers. Also had Rancho RS9000 air shocks
adjustable from in the cab. Interior was two tone gray tweed and vinyl
with Autometer Ultra Lite NASCAR gauges. Dash and door panels were wrapped
in vinyl, dash had billet accents. Custom Sony Xplod MP3 stereo system
with two 6x9s in the doors and two 6.5s in the kick panels with two 12"
subwoofers behind the seat in a custom molded and carpeted box. Subs were
powered by a 1200 watt amp, plus the stereo's 200 watts made the system
1400 watts. The truck was converted to an electronic Holley fuel pump.
Truck had a steel push bumper with a hidden Ramsey 8000 lb winch.

1952 Chevrolet 3100 STK # 1202
Here is a clean little 1952 Chevrolet 3100 truck. Powering this 3100 is a
small block Chevy with a 600 CFM holly and electronic ignition hooked up to
an automatic overdrive transmission. Getting the power to the ground is a
12 bolt rear end. The front end is out of a Chevrolet Nova so there are
power disc brakes in the front with the master cylinder hidden under the
cab. Power steering and custom wheels help cruise this truck down the road.
Inside is a custom Suede interior A/C as well as an AM/FM/CD player. This
also has an oak bed. This truck is a must see. You will definitely
appreciate this truck once you see and drive it. We can be reached at

American Graffiti 55 Chevrolet Falfa's 55 THE REAL DEAL!
This is how the car looks today. This is the 55 Chevy that was used in
both movies..... American Graffiti and Two Lane Blacktop.
It was torn apart in the eighties and had lots of changes done by order of
its new owner....... Was made to carry the whole family...... work done by
Gary Charnock of Elkridge. MD..... so we know the REAL DEAL from the day it
was bought to the way it looks today!!
Fortunately the car retains 90% of its original parts on the car or in
boxes etc...... Body, Frame, Front-End etc are original to the car as well.
