1982 Chevrolet C/K 10 Series (Papa Smurf)

This truck is my daily/hotrod. I have had it for about 6 years now and it has been a truck that you just have to love. This truck has been though hell and back and still runs better (before engine swap) than most new cars. While I was in highschool i was hit on the front fender by a S10 and never could get around to fixing it competly. When I first got the truck the guy who sold it to me converted it from a diesel to a 350 SBC that leaked more oil than it used and had about as much power as half a lawnmower. But i loved it none the less. I replaced the motor in it from a leaking 350 to a 500 hp 500 lbs of tq 383 stroker. An update to those who know the little back story about my cam wiping out in the break in. I finaly got the cam in and its running like a champ. we have been running it normaly for the past few weeks and everything is in order. we did the frist real pull on it just a 0-60 and it did a 4.7. it could be a lot better but the tires i have are not exactly the best around lol pictures will come shortly as well as a video if i can get my hands on a video reorder.


Engine: 383 SBC Stroker
HP/TQ: around 480-500 at the crank but the jury is still out...
Transmission: TH400 3spd auto w/ 2400 stall
Rear End: 3.73 posi-trac gears in 10 bolt housing
All speed,1/4 mile times ect. currently unavailable
Any other question please just ask
