My little toy is a 1950 Chevy 1/2 ton pickup. I bought it already modified with a '70 Firebird front clip, Chevy 350, automatic tranny, power steering, and power brakes. The 4.11 rear end came from a '65 GTO. Things that I have done to the ole girl are listed down the page aways.
Exterior color is an emerald green but the whole truck will need to be repainted someday (long ways down the road) as it was not done very well.
