1950 Chevrolet Truck; running 216 engine.
I saved this one from the crusher. Perhaps one of my favorite sounds... a running Stove bolt engine. I was able to get the numbers matching (original) 216 engine running after sitting for nearly 20 years. Splash oil lubricated connecting rods; pressured mains, cartridge style oil filer and oil bath air filer. Short block is; as found but, I had the cylinder head rebuilt with new: valves, guides, springs and seats. At the time of this video, I had been working on the truck for over 1 year. The truck was named Cannonball by the previous owner. Watch for Cannonball Restoration videos in the future. Kyler

1950 Chevrolet: Morrison Farm Truck - /BIG MUSCLE
The 1950 Chevrolet 3100 Series pickup is the quintessential American farm truck. However, after Craig Morrison of Art Morrison Enterprises found it languishing in someone's front yard, this little farm truck went from all-slo, to all-go. The original chassis was removed in favor of a new GT Sport bolt-on unit, as was the original Chevy straight-six engine. In its place sits a new GM Performance Parts crate motor with EFI injection that's coupled to a Hughes Performance 4L60E automatic transmission. With the original paint and interior still intact, this old truck has been given a new lease on life while still retaining all the heritage that made it great over 60 years ago.
