A friend of a friend would like to get this old Chevy hauling again, needs a few things, but not as much as you might imagine. We knew almost nothing going into this. I looked up the old Stovebolt later that day and found out that the engine only displaces 235 cubic inches! I figured it was at least five liters or more... and according to the owner it tops out at around 55mph because the gearing is something in the sevens! (7.xx)
We also get to drive a really cool Quadravan(?) Ford van with a C6 and 460. I'm assuming the running gear is sourced from a 70s F-series, but don't quote me on that.

1951 Chevy truck with stovebolt 235
This is my 1951 Chevy pick-up truck. It was purchased in 1953 by my
Grandfather who used it as a ranch truck, occasionally driving it into town
for supplies. He had the original 216 engine rebuilt later in his life when
the truck's odometer was at about 92,000 miles. He put approximately 4,000
miles on the engine before parking the truck due to his declining health
and inability to drive. I have many memories of riding in this truck as a
young boy; in fact it was the first car I ever drove, though it was in a
field at the time. After my Grandfather passed away, the truck sat for 22
years when my Dad got it running for me in June, 2007. Unfortunately the
216 overheated last summer and we replaced it with a 235. Driving this
truck, which is a small piece of our family's history, reminds me of the
days I used to work on the ranch with my Grandfather. I still have some of
his belongings in the glove box. Hope you enjoy the video.

SOLD 1951 CHEVROLET 5 WINDOW PICKUP " SOLD " Drager's 206-533-9600
Been looking for an affordable 5 window maybe this is the one. Was restored
over 20 years ago and has been garaged ever since. When we did the service
and safety check we installed a new master cylinder, new 12 volt electric
wiper motor. Its missing the right wiper arm. Installed new heater motor
and switch so you have heat. New door latches on both doors. I drove it
home from Old School Garage about 40 miles on the freeway and I will tell
you its geared low. Patrick's Automotive (520) 836-1117 has a ring and
pinion gear set that will make this 51 freeway driveable. The engine is the
216 inline six with 4 speed compound low transmission. Spilt Exhaust system just gives it a great sound. It
has been converted to 12 volts so you can put any kind of sound system you
want, as it does not have one now. Has a diamond pleat interior that looks
good. The head liner ???? its glued in felt. Easy to get the original
headliner kit and easy to install. Why didnt we do it? Keeping the price
down... I spent over $1,600 to make it drive well. Has a great body, very
solid. Chrome looks great but you can see some aging. I like these old farm
trucks as you can see by my red 53 PU. Cond. # 3.
