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.

1936 Chevrolet Street Rod Pickup Truck V8
I thought you might like a look at this very slick 1936 Chevrolet Street
Rod Pickup. It's obvious that a lot of time and money was spent getting
the body ultra smooth and it really looks mean in black. It's also
equipped with a Mustang II
style front suspension with rack and pinion steering, American Racing Torq
Thrust aluminum wheels, full custom interior, VDO gauges, a 9 inch for
rear, all new bed wood, custom storage trunk in the bed, and much more.
Under the hood is a nicely detailed 350 Chevy small block V8 with all the
great aftermarket goodies you could want...finned aluminum air cleaner,
aluminum valve covers, billet pulleys, coated headers, billet wire looms,
and a polished intake and four barrel carb. This truck is ready to drive
and show. I hope you find it interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Nitrous Muscle Truck and Mini Bikes! - Roadkill Episode 18
A Vette-powered stepside truck. Nitrous
oxide. Honda Trail 70s. Drag racing, and lots and lots of burnouts. Those
are the basic plot points on this episode of Roadkill, as Freiburger and
Finnegan have big fun with retro trail motorcycles on their way to
revitalizing a long-neglected HOT ROD magazine project vehicle and
road-tripping it to the eighth-mile drags. The vehicle is the Muscle Truck,
a '74 Chevy shortbed stepside beater powered by an all-aluminum Corvette
LS6. It also has a turbo 400
transmission, a Gear Vendors under/overdrive, a Ford 9-inch with 5.13
gears, and the most wicked sounding Exhaust ever. The goal is to get thrown out of
the dragstrip for going too fast without a rollbar, then race the minibikes
instead. How much Nitrous can the Muscle

With reliable small block power, a low maintenance automatic and luxuries
like modern air conditioning, this Chevy was built with the driver in mind.
And if you're tired of superficial classics that emphasize appearance over
practicality, it's the real deal rod you've been looking for!
Hailing from Yuba City, California, this super cool pickup recently
received a roof-to-rocker makeover that's set off by a striking coat of
Black and Ruby two-stage. Under that high quality pigment, an incredibly
straight fuselage hangs solid panels that, with the exception of a thorough
massage during their restoration, appear to have led a quiet, drama-free
existence. Those massaged panels feature better than factory alignment and,
when opened and closed, sound solid and function exceptionally well. And
that functional body's combination of excellent reflections and Kansas-flat
surfaces suggest many labor intensive hours were spent exacting top-notch
Hoist this custom's hood and you'll find a mean, 350 cubic inch GM crate
engine that's good for 8.5 to 1 compression, 260 horsepower and 350 lb./ft.
of tire twisting torque. At that top of that jet black small block, a
chrome air cleaner forces wind into a coated Edelbrock carburetor. At the
base of that carburetor, a crisp aluminum intake hangs a modern HEI
distributor between familiar chrome valve covers. At the base of those
valve covers, Accel Hi-Temp Super Stock wires snake around cast and painted
Exhaust manifolds. And in front of
those manifolds, a polished pulley system spins a modern power steering
pump between a chrome alternator, a Sanden AC compressor and a beefy
The dressed 350's power flows from a rebuilt turbo-Hydramatic 3-speed to a sturdy Dynotech driveshaft and rebuilt
Nova axle. That familiar drivetrain pushes a blasted and powdercoated
chassis on a Helix 4-bar suspension, which sports fresh Ride Tech
coil-overs. Tracking is provided by a Helix Mustang II front clip, which is
fitted with adjustable coil-overs and power rack and pinion steering. Quick
stops are a cinch thanks to drilled and slotted discs and power-assisted
drums. And at the corners of the chassis, painted and polished steelies
twist 215/60R16 Diamond Back Classic whitewalls around stainless trim rings
and "CHEVROLET" branded hub caps.
When you pop this pickup's doors, you'll find a stylish and comfortable
cockpit that's sprinkled with modern amenities. Top dead center, a glossy
dash hangs New Vintage USA Woodward Series gauges above hardware for
Vintage Air climate control. In front of that dash, a traditional bench
seat wears an attractive combination of cloth and vinyl hides. And in front
of the driver, a polished Helix column spins a polished Grant wheel around
old school foot pedals.
This fully sorted Chevy is a wonderful classic to drive, enjoy and haul a
couple of your coolest friends in. Call, click or visit
