Project "Colonel"

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello all, new to this site and this is my first post. I'm wanting to start a build thread. So here we go.

Everyone meet Colonel. Its a 78 Chevy Scottsdale 4x4. It has a 350 engine with Turbo 350 Tranny, 3.73 gears in the 12 bolt rear end. Unsure of the front axle or gears yet. I brought it home May 18th after inheriting it from my father. (My fathers nickname was Colonel so that's where the name come from!)

The pic included is it on the trailer the day I brought it home. More to come as I go along

Re: Project "Colonel"

Here are the headers and carb I will be using. Once I make sure the headers fit, I will have them powdercoated. The other pics are just random pics taken the other day

Re: Project "Colonel"

I got the front end off the truck, and got the 305 that was in it out. I also used my new toy, an electric power washer, to clean all the grease and dirt from the frame and engine.
