Man, this thing had to have been a sleeper with that small-block Chevy in it!

No longer owned



- My first LUV! 1978 Chevy LUV with a small-block Chevy V8. Even though it was a fairly lame motor (bone-stock 2bbl Chevy 305), this light-weight truck with stock 4.56:1 gears was wicked fast and hard on tires! Unfortunately I had to trade it off for basic transportation during some rough times, but last I heard the interior finally got finished and it had a 'Vette 350 in it.


75hp 1.8L SOHC Isuzu I-4 engine
4.56:1 rear gear ratio

Factory Options

Were there any? This was an economy truck. Mine was short-bed 2WD. Didn't even have decent interior anymore when I got it. Wasn't meant to be comfy. Meant to be fast and fun!


I-4 engine was replaced with a Chevy 305 and TH350 automatic. 15" Prime aluminum wheels, tires, & yellow paint were on it when I bought it.
