First official start up of my 55' Chevy now that the motor is mostly complete. The engine is a 5.3L LM7, with LS1 intake manifold, modified stock truck manifolds, dual 2 1/4 Exhaust going into Thush mufflers.

transmission, but I plan to install a 4 or 5 speed manual of some type and
either a SBC or a LS1. Here's the journey it had to make from Homer, AK to
