Chevrolet Pickup Stepside Drag Racing Racelegal 12-16-2011

Great looking four wheel drive step side truck drag racing on the 1/8 mile. An all-new clean sheet redesign of General Motor's (GM) Chevrolet and GMC brand C/K-Series pickups débuted in 1972 for the 1973 model year. Development of the new third generation trucks began in 1968, four years prior to production in 1972, with vehicle components undergoing simulated testing on computers, before the first prototype pickups were even built for real world testing.[3] The redesign was revolutionary in appearance at the time, particularly the cab, departing from typical American pickup truck designs of the era. As a result, the third generation quickly became known as the "rounded-line" generation; although some people refer to them as "square bodys", given that the trucks appear square-like by more modern standards.[4][5] GM's design engineers fashioned the "rounded-line" exterior in an effort to improve aerodynamics and fuel efficiency, using wind tunnel technology to help them sculpt the body.[6] Third generation design traits include "double-wall" construction, sleek sculpted body work, flared secondary beltline and a aerodynamic cab which featured rounded doors cutting high into the roof and steeply raked windshield featuring an available hidden radio antenna embedded into the glass.[4][7][8] There were two types of pickup boxes to choose from. The first type, called "Fleetside" by Chevrolet and "Wideside" by GMC, was a "double-wall" constructed full width pickup box and featured a flared secondary beltline to complement the cab in addition to new wraparound tail lamps. Both steel and wood floors were available. The second type, called "Stepside" by Chevrolet and "Fenderside" by GMC, was a narrow width pickup box featuring steps and exposed fenders with standalone tail lamps. Initially, only wood floors were available.[9] The wheelbase length was extended to 117.5 in (2985 mm) for the short wheelbase pickups, and 131.5 in (3340 mm) for the long wheelbase pickups. A new dual rear wheel option called "Big Dooley" was introduced on 1-ton pickups, along with a new Crew Cab option on the 164.5 in (4,178 mm) wheelbase.[10] Crew Cabs were available in two versions: a "3+3" which seated up to six occupants and "bonus cab" which deleted the rear seat and added rear lockable storage in its place. The fuel tank was moved from the cab to the outside of the frame, and a dual tank option was available which brought fuel capacity to 40 US gallons. 1980 was the first year that a cassette tape could be purchased, along with a CB radio.[11] The rounded-line generation ultimately ran for a lengthy 15 model years (1973--1987) with the exception of the Crew-Cab, Blazer, Jimmy, and Suburban versions, which continued up until the 1991 model year.

Chevrolet Vega Drag Racing Racelegal.com 12-16-2011
check out this 1972 chevrolet vega on the 1/8 mile at racelegal.com making a tuneup pass .The Chevrolet Vega is a subcompact automobile produced by the Chevrolet division of General Motors from 1970 to 1977. Named after the star Vega, GM's first U.S. mini-car was produced in two-door hatchback, notchback, wagon, and panel delivery body styles all featuring an inline four-cylinder engine with a lightweight, aluminum alloy cylinder block. Initially well-received by buyers and the motoring press, the car sold well against the AMC Gremlin and Ford Pinto subcompacts and imports including Toyota, Datsun and Volkswagen. By 1974 it was among the top ten best-selling American cars.[1] The Cosworth Vega, a short-lived limited-production performance model with a reduced-displacement but more powerful all-aluminum inline four-cylinder engine, was introduced in March 1975. In early Vegas, engine problems and fender corrosion harmed GM's reputation for build quality.[2] The faults were remedied by recalls and design upgrades. A three-year sales decline led to the car's cancellation at the end of the 1977 model year The Vega was conceived in 1968 to utilize newly developed all-aluminum die-cast engine block technology -- the first sand-cast aluminum blocks had preceded the decision to build the car by two years. A relatively large displacement engine with good low- speed torque was decided on. gear ratios for low engine rpm would achieve economy. Engine testing totalled 6,000,000 miles. The pre-test version was installed in a Fiat 124 sedan for development of the aluminum block, while several 1968 Opel sedans were used for drive train development[5] Chevrolet instituted a new management program, the car line management technique, which made it possible to produce the all-new car in two years. The chief vehicle engineer had overall charge of the program. 50 engineers, dedicated to the design of the entire car, were divided into groups: body, power train, chassis design, product assurance, and pleasability. The latter would check continuously on the vehicles on the assembly line, with computers in another program monitoring quality control of every vehicle built.[5] Fisher Body engineers and draftsmen moved in with the Vega personnel. In October 1968, there was one body style (the "11" style notchback sedan), one engine, one transmission (MB1 Torque-Drive manually shifted two-speed automatic), one base trim level, a bench seat, molded rubber floor covering, no glove box or headliner and no air-conditioning (ventilation was through the upper dash from the wiper plenum). As the program went into development, the market changed, as did the product. December 1968: Hatchback, wagon, and panel delivery styles added; also floor-level ventilation, and an optional performance engine ("L-11" two-barrel) which, predicted as 20% of production, accounted for 75%. Bucket seats were standard. Hatchback and station wagon received carpeting and headliners. Optional Air conditioning, predicted as 10% of production, rose to 45%. February 1969: Opel three- and four-speed transmissions (three-speed standard, others optional); Powerglide also added (now four transmissions); mechanical fuel pump replaced by in-tank electric pump; power steering option; base "11" style Notchback trim upgraded to match Hatchback and Wagon carpet and headliner. April 1969: Gauge-pack cluster, HD suspension, wide tires; adjustable seat back (45% of production); bumpers restyled, lower valance panels added; swing-out quarter window option (10% of production). July 1969: Electrically heated backlite option (10% of production); "GT" package, $325.00 extra (35% of production); bright window-frame and roof drip moldings added to Hatchback and Wagon. This is essentially how the car launched as a 1971 model. Production began on June 26, 1970. After the National GM strike (September to November 1970) ended, bright roof drip moldings were added to base "11" notchback, with moldings sent to dealers to update units already in the field. Cars magazine said in 1974: "Chevrolet paid a price for its rush to introduce the car with other 1971 models. Tests which should have been at the proving grounds were performed by customers, necessitating numerous piecemeal "fixes" by dealers. Chevrolet's "bright star", received an enduring black eye despite a continuing development program which eventually alleviated most of these initial shortcomings

1949 Chevrolet 5 window 3100 Pickup " SOLD " Drager's International Classic Sales 206-533-9600
This is a real nice stock PU. 216 cu.in. Straight 6 cylinder engine. This is the original engine and the vin # AA3409 is on the bock. 4 speed manual transmission. Chrome wheels with radial tires so it handles fine. The PU was sold in Palm Springs California in 2011. It came to the northwest and ended up on Lopez Island. Jack, the owner, wanted to drive it in the Lopez Island parade 2012 but the day before he had a U-joint let go, and he did not get to drive it. I bought it on Lopez from Jack's Estate and drove it to the ferry, all the time thinking how nice this PU drives and that Jack did not get to enjoy it. This was his dream truck. I got some receipts back to 2002. This has a great body. The paint is old but looks very good you will find some minor imperfections. We found a very small rust spot on the underside but I would have to tell this is as close a rust free truck as you will find. And the underside is very clean. We have talked about the color and have come up with Lt. Carmel. I like it as it sets it off from other Chevy PU's. Interior is nice and has a cloth headliner. Does not have a heater or a radio. It is still 6 volts. The wipers work. The PU has turn signals. Wood bed looks good. We just installed a new battery. You will be real happy owning and driving it. I drove it to Old School Garage in Port Orchard so Joe could do the service and safety check. Joe installed a new head light switch, replaced leaky engine gaskets and got it running a lot better. I have driven it about 150 miles so far. It makes a great run around PU and you can take it to the Sunday show. It runs and drives well and when I'm driving it I receive lots of waves. Cond. #3 +.
