Ready to go to the swapmeet and haul back all your great parts finds, nice lookin 1946 Chevy pickup.
Where do I start? You hear it all the time, my car or truck draws a crowd, there are many that do but this one is almost comical, dudes flock to it, the gals are about 50/50 but the ones that don’t love it, won’t take their eyes off it, children are scared of it.
To pull in a cruise and park this thing, just to walk away and people watch is a blast, the comments are just as interesting.
Believe it or not the builder wasn’t trying to build some patina’d shop truck, he was making up the truck, working out the bugs and then planning on blowing it all apart for a full fledged show truck, well 4 years of driving it in the mock up staged he completely realized that’s way more fun this way.
When he realized how much work it was going to be too do a perfect paint job and the amount of work the upkeep would be he came to his senses and decided he would build another vehicle and keep this one just the way it is.
I’m glad he did because I wouldn’t have had a bit of interest in it if I had to spend more time cleaning and worrying then actually driving and enjoying my hot rod.
He started with an oroginal 46 Chevy truck in decent shape for the age, he hammered the fenders straight, bought some patch panels and got it to this point.
He used an S10 stub but adapted a late model rack and pinion steering gear to the s10 stub.
The rear section of frame has been modified to except a Blazer rear end and leaf springs.
The blazer also donated its 2.8 V6, 4 speed trans, fuel tank and steering column.
The truck runs and drives good, iff you don’t mind rattles and wind leaks, you can drive it anywhere.
The rear gear is a 4.11 which keeps freeway speeds around 60, an overdrive would certainly help.
For an around town shop truck it makes for a fun driver.
The interior is sparse, the seat has a vinyl cover and there is a fan installed under the dash to cool you down on a hot summer cruise.
it will need a drivers door window and regulator.
There a few gauges installed under the dash that work, the gas gauge does not.
Iinside of the bed looks nice and you have to lift the one piece bed floor to fill the tank, very easy to do.
