My dad and I have been in the process of restoring my '55 2nd series pickup for almost for years now, and were gonna paint it this friday (12-17-10). This is exactly what it looks like right now. Its still in the booth right now. Its got a 1971 Chevy 350 small block, Edelbrock Torker intake, and a Holley 600 carb.
1957 Chevy 3100 Pick-up Truck
Here is an all original, matching numbers Chevy 3100 Short-bed with an
amazing straight body and minimal rust. She is mechanically sound, she runs
and drives great, all gears shift out smoothly and the clutch is good and
tight. The brakes have been redone stopping straight and true. The tires
are brand new and the truck steers straight. There is almost no rust on the
body and only 2 or 3 spots that may need welded. Other than that all of the
underneath is surface rust, floor-pans and fenders are all strong. This
would be an easy rat-rod truck but the body and lines are so straight that
you could take her to any level. The windshield and back glass are really
good and I have the replacement glass for the vent windows and the drivers
window along with new weatherstripping for the doors. This is a sharp truck
you can drive right now and enjoy while tinkering on her.
1955 Chevy Truck ( 2 year BackYard Rebuild Step by Step )
Me and my Dad started this truck about 2 years ago, from the frame up. It
was originally owned by my grandfather but it sat for the last 18 years and
got totally rusted out, lots of rust cancer, it would have been easier for
me to get a cheap donor truck with a straight body to do the build with,
but I wanted to breathe life back into my Grandfathers truck, so let's just
say there was a lot of cutting and welding done to this truck. I C Notched
the rear End, put 4 inch drop mono leaf springs in the rear I still had to
use some blocks to raise it a little more to get the rack I wanted, I put
in a Heidts Front Clip, 700R Tranny, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Disc
Brakes, it has a small 305 in it right now just to get around town, but i
have a 350 sitting in my shed to get rebuilt heavy

going to be UNDER the hood.
