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.
-=New!=- 1956 Chevy truck project , Rods R Us
Continuing on with our nasty little habit of building wicked cool trucks,
here comes the newest project from Rods R Us out of Carmichael, CA.
*Note this is not the red truck, this is a fresh build*
Video pretty much says it all this time, tried my hand at some commentary
and felt like a goofball all the way through!
If I left out any details you'd like to know about the build let me know
and i'll get back to you... I neglected to mention that entire motor is
going to be UNDER the hood.
Questions? Comments? Let us know, see what Rods R Us can do for you!
