    Ii needed a truck to haul bikes home. so I built this little chevy on an old S10....kept the 4.3 with all the s10 crap,gave it a haircut and added a few inches in the middle for my extra inches in the middle. Frenched in some 49 ford taillights with lee lenses....still have some work to get it ready for more satin black but at least its a driver now.

    That's a cool looking ride, plus has the comfort of modern suspension and drivetrain, an excellent daily driver. Well done!

  4. Hey Brewsir,

    Glad to see you're still around and hard at it. Kool truck. Will it go as far as the Batfink? E

    Your truck looks awesome. I put mine on a s-10 frame also. People on here don't like 'em bu it sure rides and handles nice. For a daily driver it's hard to beat.
     

  7. It is not that generally folks do not like them. It is the fact that few folks can pull them off properly. Clark was the first one here, maybe the first in the country to do it right and Brewsir's skills have shown that he has proven to be able to build anything. Long live Batfink!

    Hey Brewsir, truck looks cool, nice work. Did you ever finish that 38 cab modified?

    Good looking chop. I put my wife's 49 on an s10 chassis as well. Best of both worlds for the money
