Description

1966 Chevy Short Stepside Custom Cab Hot Rod Description Ground up, body off restoration/upgrade of a classic pickup. Comes with a supercharged (B&M) 454 that was built by Rick Sullivan (Big Block Guru). 502 series block from a 1970 Chevelle. Roller rockers and all the performance goodies. Estimated horsepower between 500-600HP, but not yet verified by a DYNO. Engine was removed from a show truck and had an estimated 6,000 miles when removed. Rebuilt 400TH automatic with a Doug Nash (US GEAR) 30% electronic overdrive. Freshly rebuilt 12 bolt Tru-Track positrack with 3:73 gears. Frame sandblasted, filled and painted in gloss black frame paint. Kick the overdrive in and lower your final drive ratio by 30%. Save gas or go faster, your choice. Original wood bed was replaced with diamond plate steel for durability. The stake bed pockets have been filled in flush, the rails had custom billet plugs in the ends, it has a custom roll pan in the rear with a recessed license plate area. The chains were replaced with hidden spring loaded fasteners that are inside the tailgate. It has a new 20 gallon gas tank mounted behind the rear axle and the filler is located inside the bed with a custom made flap that hides the filler. I was going to have the spray on rubberized bed liner sprayed in the bed and then use a Gaylord fiberglass cover. Cooling comes from a model 295 Flex A Lite Electric with dual 13.5" fans. Puts out 4,500-5,500 CFM in cooling power. Has an overide switch to allow fans to be on manually, but has a automatic thermostat control. The original radiator was replace with a new 4 core high efficiency core. Between the radiator and the fans, it should run cool in the hottest weather. Original power brake booster overhauled and upgraded to dual diaphrams by Prior Brake. Has proportioning valve for Disc/Drum brakes. Wheels are American Racing Torque Thrust D. Rims were custom polished to get rid of the factory polish lines. They are 15'X8.5" and include the billet American Racing Knock Off wing caps. The tires are brand new Mastercraft Avenger (Cooper). Front tires are 265X50X15 and the back tires are 295X50X15. The back tires are almost 12" wide and the tire/wheel combination looks fantastic. New Monroe shocks. Upgraded from 6 lug pattern to 5 lug pattern with power steering and disc front brakes. Front has been lowered 2.5" and rear lowered 4". Hedman headers with aluminized exhaust through SS Magna Flow mufflers and 2.5" aluminized exhaust. Many new chrome parts...Valve covers, aircleaner, PS pump, alternator and more... All body work completed. Sandblasted, then prepped right. Has a steel cowl induction hood (69 Camero style). The is the rare big rear window Custom Cab model. All the drip rails have been removed and filled. Steel rear fenders have been widened 2" for fat tires. Body has filler primer and 2 coats of flat black epoxy with sealer. It can be driven, as is or it is ready for painting to your color. One rocker replaced, one cab corner, two areas in the floor. All were replaced with correct steel parts. No rust on this vehicle anywhere. Firewall has been recessed for the big block and smoothed. It has chromed steel inner fenders and SS battery tray. New front fenders and an awesome engine turned dash with new Auto Meter black platinum guages. Has a rare 1960 chromed grille with dual headlights and hoods. Has new chrome F&R bumpers and much more. All new wiring with a new GM color coded harness and a 21 circuit panel. Runs and drives excellent. Only has 6.2 miles as of 7/7/09 after rebuild. All new brake lines. Front and rear glass are brand new. Front glass has a green tint with the darker tint at the top. The rear glass also has the green tint. The front glass has the (hard to find) deluxe SS trim ring instead of simply the rubber gasket. The rear glass has the chrome bead in the gasket. The steering column has been upgraded to a tilt column with the standard automatic shifter and turn. It was from a van, so the ignition remains in the original instrument panel. Drivetrain, wiring, guages, bodywork are all complete and work perfectly. The engine is incredible with the supercharger. Not sure of the horsepower, it has not been on a dyno, but it is super healthy. We used a 1966 GMC long bed frame because of the leaf springs. The frame was shortened and boxed by professionals and looks stock. The frame has also had all the extra holes filled. All of the springs and coils were replaced with new by Boise Spring Works. It has new poly bushings throughout. The truck is about 95% complete and is fully drivable, as is, but it needs to following to be 100%...aftermarket heating/air conditioning unit, wiper motor, emergency brake completed (have new Lokar floor mount emergency brake set up complete), carpet, dome light. Probably want to install the dura mat insulation prior to carpet. The wind wings were removed from the two doors so the glass would be one piece. It was my intent to install electric windows with the stock window crank as the control. I can have the glass cut locally to match the other tint. The power windows are about $200 from several sources and it is wired for the windows. That is all I can think of. It has only been driven a few miles so expect the normal items that will need adjusted, etc. Reason for selling...I am a real estate broker and I am broker than ever. Must sell my dream truck to pay bills. I am not going to give it away, but someone is going to buy this pickup at far less than you could build one for. It would take very little to make this a trophy winning show truck, but my plan was to just use it as a daily driver. Will someone please stimulate my economy!!!
