Class winner today at the Keeneland Concours in Lexington, Ky.
I spoke with the owner, an elderly gentleman from North Carolina. he said his dad bought the truck new and never hauled anything in it, rather he used it like a car. It had a V-8 and Power-Glide tranny, an unusual combo in trucks in the early 60's.

Kind of like the stock appearance of my buddy's kids truck , though the air suspension might be a little different then stock . Note the high tech air conditioner !

It may not look like it, but I built this... it's actually pretty massively modified...





1989 Chevy S-10 Blazer 4X4, solid axle swap using 1982 Jeep Wagoneer Dana 44 solid axles front and rear...
Basically, I cut off the entirety of the front suspension, built my own, and modified the hell out of the rear.
I also upgraded the brakes to hydroboost brakes from a military HMMWV ("Humvee"), upgraded the power steering pump and steering gearbox to 1997 Astro (PS pump from that vehicle is about the strongest commonly available Saginaw P-type you can get), and have added commonly-available spin-on filters to all fluids: (full-flow for Power steering fluid, and transmission fluid, and bypass filtration for coolant, transmission, and motor oil).

Couple of workhorses.

These are close to my heart, as a young lad my Grandfather plowed some state roads in Maine (1960's) with a FWD and an Oshgosh, I was about 6 or 7 and he put me in the passenger seat for a ride up the farm driveway, all I remember is the giant exhaust tube running out the hood and over the roof barking like a beast from hell I started to freak and he set me on the ground to walk up the driveway saying he did not need to listen to no Baby crying...

Can't even imagine you doing that even as a kid, Tim.

Great story and pics.
