About “Luv Machine”


- 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.

About “**the second project car^^”

this is one of the two bronco that i have. this particular one is a 1976 and it's a sport. my other which is a 73 is in several pieces in my garage
this bronco has it's rough spots but is a beast.
thes bronco's are born to go offroading from the factory. if you drive one of these you will never want to stop.

Factory Options for “Luv Machine”

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!

Factory Options for “**the second project car^^”

only thing i can think of is the rear seats.


Mods for “Luv Machine”

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.

Mods for “**the second project car^^”
