Default '47 Chevy AutoX Truck

Hello everyone, I am Tyler. Long time lurker finally joining mostly so I can actually see some of the attached pictures in threads and admire all the great builds. But since there are some other atypical build threads and a section for trucks I figured I would introduce myself. I am originally from Missouri, but currently living in the DC area as a student. My fun toy is a chopped up '47 Chevy truck that my Dad and I built for super low budget autox fun. I also still have my first car, an '82 Z28 that served as my daily driver and an autox fun car for a number of years.

305 SBC with some swap meet go fast parts

World Class T5 from a 4th gen V6 Camaro with custom bellhousing adapter plate
C4 Corvette aluminum driveshaft
S-10 7.5" 10 bolt with a g-body limited slip center section and 4.11 gears

The 305 was free and with the go fast parts and some homegrown head porting and rod grinding it has been a reliable hard working engine that loves to rev right up to 7,000 RPM. My truck is on a modified '84 S-10 extended cab frame so I originally used the S-10 T5. It lasted a few thousand miles before the clutch drops and power shifting caused it to grenade in 3rd gear.

If you are interested there are more details and some YouTube videos here

I've seen this truck a couple years now at the KC goodguys and asked for a ride this weekend. All I can say is WOW what a fun little truck! Thanks for the ride Tyler sorry I weighed you down.
