Out with the old (454) in with the new (582). This is the engine I promised in the comments that is replacing my old 454 powerplant. As you can see from the end of the video this tree stump pullin' 582 monster has 784HP @ 6200RPM and 742ftlbs of torque @ 5000RPM. NO BOTTLE....and is streetable on pump gas at 10.5:1. Aside from the package Shafiroff offers on this engine, I had Wilson Manifolds provide intermediate porting and port matching of the intake to the DART PRO1 355cc heads which proves to be money well spent as it is giving this beast an additional 35HP over advertised on Shafiroff's website. Go to www.shafiroff.com for more specs on the 582 Ultra Street BIG DAWG.
1975 GMC pickup restored by us. 454 BBC.
1975 GMC pickup restored completely by us.
The truck was purchased in Illinois, had 454 BBC, A/C.
That's about it regarding options.
The truck was used as a farm truck in Oregon.
The seller at ebay couldn't start it so he sold it to me.
Shipped it to Europe, used for a summer, then we begun the restoration procedure.
Frame-off, everything welded, new paint, new real leather interior, every screw removed, painted and reinstalled.
The drivetrain was in very good condition, just as the suspension.
Fixed the brakes, got new chrome wheels painted shiny black and here it is now.
Take a look.
