78 Chev 3/4 Ton — Probably the best thing about this truck is the fact that has a granny gear 4 speed. It makes it great for towing and just that much more fun to drive. The engine is stock other than the edelbrock 750cfm carb i put on it but it still has the power to spin the tires for about 80 feet in the dry.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Pros: 4 speed manual

Cons: rusty and needs new leaf springs in the rear

Its Beast — well i have pretty much fully rebuilt the truck myself. it has a jasper 350 motor in it with a turbo 350 trans. All of the body work has been completed and it is waiting for a new paint job. Just a few minor details and mechanical projects left and the truck will be complete.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: its a chevy

Cons: hard on gas

Dad Bought It New And Has Taken Care Of It Ever Since. — it's 350 V8 engine gives it exceptional acceleration for a truck and its custom headers and dual exhaust with Cherry Bomb mufflers sound great. Unfortunatly its only three gears make its comfortable cruising speed about 60 MPH at three thousand RPM. It also is one year two early for the locking torque converter which combined with its older, big V8 engine makes its MPG only about 10, and thats only if you can your foot clean out of it. This truck drives very nice and is very fun to listen too going down the road and its offroad capabilities are good, but its stock leaf suspension make for a rough ride. its paint job is still reasonablely nice except for the hood which my dad replaced because somone stood on it to reach higher. Custom bumper to hold winch. Custom Chrome bed racks and headach bar. Looking for new chrome rims to replace the stock ones that are still on it. its great for parties and drive in movies or firework shows. but will be better when i put a toolbox full of speakers in the back right in front of a couch, and add my new stereo system.

Pros: fun, go anywhere, haul stuff or people

Cons: gas mileage, low top speed

Sleeper — shes good c20 3/4 ton 350 small block chevy th400 3 speed trans 2 wheel drive and it does some nice off roading with all terrane tires on the back, really fun to drive, fast turning but is a truck so wont turn on a dime though good acceleration will do brake stands and burnouts rough ride cuz it is a work truck and made for rough roads, winter time its fun but not something to mess around with you will lose control of it

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: its a beast

Cons: gas and would be nice if 4x4
