Default Flareside Gets an Upgrade

Well, I've owned it since I bought it off the lot in 1992.
I have made a lot of modifications since then, but now its time for the biggy.

I'm starting out with replacing the small block drive train with a Big Block 460, C6, and a 205.

Here are a few pics:





Here are some bad cell phone pics of the new powertrain, pre cleanup:

SWEET It's a little fuzzy but I think you will need a new flexplate.

I hope to make the Labor day Car show in Muskegon,............but it will be at the mudrun in Ravana somehow in September.

I have to beat the two rigs parked next to it in this picture. That is my main reason in doing it.
