The 34 made it to GNRS.
Great looking truck. I think you really missed on the engine, a 50's period hopped up 270 or 302 GMC or a Chevy 261...THEN when you opened the hood the beer hit the chilled glass. One opinion.
Congrats! Great looking Chevy!
Truck looks great.
What's the bed length, stock?
That is beautiful but screams for fenders !!
I can't believe I said it myself (fenders) must be gettin old lol!!
More, I think that truck's cab belt line is a great opportunity for an off setting color and also pinstripes would be cool, but it ain't mine.
If it were mine I would drive it till the doors came off, reattach doors, continue driving.
Nice looking truck! That blue is sure a purdy color!
@ 50John The bed was shortened somewhere around 8" from stock. I wanted the rear wheel sitting right in the center of the bed. We measured from the center of the wheel to the front of the bed, then cut the back to be the same length.

Looks great, even more so in that setting.
Cosmo49 - "I think you really missed on the engine..."
Really?? He installed a nicely dressed CHEVY small block in a CHEVY. Perfect.
I was there late Thursday when he rolled in. He said he just got the truck together and barely made it in time to get into the show. Good for him.
Nice truck! I really like the FORD parts...ha!
WOW.....such a nice build.......Is going to make me consider building mine......
I have a complete 35 Chevy truck sitting at the moment......not too sure what to do with it since I am a little tall @ 6'7"....REALLY want to drop a hopped up 235 in it with 2-2bbls but not sure if I would ever be able to sit in it.
I just realized Photobucket messed up my whole thread, here's a few pics of the build.
That's looking awesome, second painted Chev truck thread I've opened today.
So good to see yer twuck again - really nice - love the look and color - great job!

Nice recap, sweet looking Chevy truck!
I'm diggin' both looks.
Finally got around to finishing the interior.

Thanks Cactus. Your truck inspired me to do mine, the color too.
Awe man I'm flattered! Maybe I'll finish mine one day, ha! (Probably nah?!)
Excellent attention to detail! You should be real proud of how it turned out!
