My '82 Chevy Silverado SWB....
« on: November 19, 2008, 08:20:07 PM »
I purchased this truck from someone on Craigslist in the Grand Prarie,TX. area. My brother and some friends of ours drover from the north Houston,TX. area to go grab this little gem.

The truck is an '82 Chevy Silverado SWB. The truck has power windows,power locks, turbo 350 trans and for now a 305CID engine.

The truck has a 600DP Holley carb,Edelbrock Performer RPM intake,polished ball milled Valve covers, MSD6AL box,Mallory Comp9000 distributer,MSD Super conductor wires, and an MSD Blaster2 coil. The truck currently has 2 chamber Flowmaster mufflers with duals......BUT, I have a new set of headers that I want to install asap...and change the exhaust to 3 inch and dumps before the axle.

This truck is going to be built to look good....but will be street raced frequently.

Alot has been done in the past 4 weeks since I bought it......it's a start, but I've got ALOT more planned for this truck.

I'll post more pics as things progress.

Thanks and enjoy the pics,

Brian

Yeah, I also have a '98 Chevy S10 truck which has been dropped and a bunch of other stuff done to it.....so I've also ran with the "mini" crowd before ;)

Mainly I hang out with the street racing crowd on the north side of Houston...... my younger brother has an '88 SWB Chevy truck with a BBC that we play with too ;)
