Photo of a 1938 Chevrolet Pickup (The 38)


This truck has been a 19 year project. I traded a 12 gauge shotgun for it. It started its life as a 2 ton flat bed truck. It was a barn find out of Louisville, Ky., driven home. The last couple of years have been the most productive in finishing the truck. It is still under construction, needing official paint job and details. A shade of red pearl is the way I am leaning as of now.


GM Performance 383 crate engine with aluminum heads.
Ram jet fuel injection.
Gear star performance 4L60 trans.
Fab 9 rear end.
4 link rear suspension.
4 wheel disk brakes.
450 hp, 450 torque before fuel injection was added. Has not been dinoed since addition.


EVERYTHING! This was a 2 ton with a 20' flat.
