About “93 to 53 beast”

Me and my dad bought a Stock 93 GMC Sierra. We put a retro 53 nose on it. Originally it was a bolt on kit but we riveted it to the fenders and glassed the seam for a smooth one peice look. We are custom fabricating a 53 bed. It has corvette rally wheels and caps wrapped in kelley charger tires.

I plan to put in a ZZ4 block bored it .030 over. Put on aluminum e-tec performer heads and an edelbrock MPFI system on it. Shorty headers and Chrome Classic Chevrolet valve covers on it, I used to have this engine in it but we had to part the engine out due to lack of money to get the computer chip modified. All that is left off of it now are my headers the distributor and the ignition box.

We took the 4 speed off the tree and put it on the floor. It has a stock 4l60e transmission right now.

Band new double roller timing chain, wheel spacers, distributor, coil, flywheel, spark plugs, sparkplug wires, throttle body,

About “454 SS”

My first car actually, and my main project car. The original 454 died at the drag strip several years ago and after that it became a challenge to make it one of the fastest street/strip vehicles in town. She runs mid 11's now... :-)
