About “1950 CHEVY HALF bad boy”

Straight six offers adequate power, but the 4:11 rear end ratio makes the truck limited on freeway travel. Future plans call for either late model 4 or 5 speed trans with open driveshaft and taller gears, or possible V8/4 speed combo. We know the car scene it always appreciative of anything other than the proverbial small block Chevrolet, but you can't argue with success. Plus, there is not much that beats the sound of a manually shifted V8! Either way, it will require a replacement rear axle for taller gears. Let's shake the parts tree in the future, and see what falls down.
