Okay, here are the specs on this beast. 1961 chevy pickup with a custom made extended cab. It still needs work and windows in the back. It has a 1962 hood on it as well. There are some rust pits but nothing major and it surprisingly in good shape for it's age. It is street legal in Texas (barely). It is titled as a 61 so no emmisions crap to worry about. Has current inspection and tags on it. Has cold A/C believe it or not!
The frame is a 79 blazer, so it has power steering and power disc brakes and even a hydraulic clutch.
15" of suspension lift with 3" custom body lift. Yes, 18" total lift. Notice in the pics the rocker clears the tops of the massive 44's. The wheels are 15x14 steel chrome wheels and the tires are 44" x 21" Truxus STS tires with lots of life left on them. dual pro comp shocks on each corner.
355ci SBC with a crane 4x4 cam (lumpy idle), runs strong engine has around 20,000 miles on it. I have all the receipts from previous owner
roller rocker arms
flexalite electric fans
3" dual exhaust with flowmasters (loud as hell)
no cats installed and none needed for a '61
candy cane striped driveshafts
Muncie sm465 4 speed manual transmission
203 transfer case
14 bolt corp rear end with 4.11's
dana 44 front end with matching 4.11's (manual hubs)
ORU crossover steering conversion (just did this last month, makes a huge difference in turning radius) added new ball joints and a new tie rod when I did the installation, so the front end is basically brand new.
New front brakes last month as well (calipers and pads)
Interior is basically gutted right now with only 2 racing seats installed. It does have seat belts and all the gauges work with the exception of speedo (no cable) All lights, turn signals, etc work as well.
The truck drives really well for it's size. Stops good and turns awesome (although hi speed turns are not suggested) It even handles well on the highway (I have had it up to around 75mph)
Known problems: clutch will chatter if you try to launch at too high of an rpm (new clutch and a resurfaced flywheel would fix this) clutch performs fine with regular driving
Goodies that come with it:
14 bolt corp full floater rear axle with an eaton posi chunk brand new in the bag. Disc brake conversion partially done
205 transfer case, rebuilt and ready to go.
turbo 400 rebuilt and ready to go as well including torque converter.
Misc parts for the truck including heater core (not installed) window track for the driver door with new weatherstripping. side steps for the truck and a few other misc parts.
I am sure I am forgetting some stuff. This would make a great project truck and with some body work and an interior it could be an awesome show truck. It turns heads wherever it goes. This thing is almost 9' tall. You look eye to eye with the big rig drivers. It is 46" from the rocker to the ground!
I have no time to work on it as I am working 6 days a week again. Truck is available for inspection in NW Houston.
