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. 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.
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. 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.
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.
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. 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.
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.

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 +.

1958 Chevrolet Apache Pickup
I thought you'd like a look at this nicely restored 1958 Chevrolet Apache
Pickup. The starting point for this Chevy is the 3200 Series pickup truck,
which sports a long wheel base to go with its fleetside long bed and has
been panted an eye catching yellow. This isn't a run of the mill Chevy
however - the drivetrain has been upgraded to a 350 CID V8 engine with a turbo 350 Automatic transmission. The
upgrades don't end there, there's a straight front axle from a 59 3/4 ton
Chevy in the front with power disc brakes for stopping power. New items
include a new master cylinder, brakes, tires, wheels, aluminum radiator,
transmission cooler, and a new power steering setup. Other options include
AM/FM/CD radio, power steering, power brakes, aluminum alloy wheels, radial
tires, and a vinyl interior. Thanks for taking a look!
