Re: Chevy 51" original Texas truck,,now in Holland

My plan is to place the Scotts IFS and a 4 Heidts 4 link in the back.
Put the 454 Big Block in it,with the TH 400
New steering column...
18" Boss in the front
20" Boss in the back.
And paint the truck Blue,, the original color was
Also blue.. But painting is a plan for the future..
There is a lot to do.....
