    Hi All,

    I have been reading posts on H.A.M.B. for years. Especially ones of other people working on the same project as me.

    My project is a 1957 Chevy 1/2 ton truck.

    Bought the truck with a 305 engine (not running currently but apparently turns over) with a 350 turbo transmission in it. It has a 79-80 Camaro front clip and Camaro rear end. The truck is sitting on a 1969 Chevy c10 frame (not really compatible). Has little rust on it for the age and came with a lot of original parts.

    Looking forward to posting the progress as I begin work on it this year.

    Welcome, sounds like a lot of the upgrade work is done. Will be fun to drive once you get it running.
