No, it was done over buy a Corvette shop in LI NY for a shop truck. The guy I bought it from was an ex LI cop, moved here a few years ago to retire. Super nice guy, had a beautifull log cabin over in Bristol behind the Homestead restaurant. It's not original, it was built on an S10 Chevy chassis with S10 drivetrain so it drives just like an S10 pick up. Got to register it this week, I'm sure you'll see me cruising around.

Very nice, enjoy the ride.

1954, wish that I was that young. Anyway in the 50's my neighbor had a Chev truck with the gas tank in the cab behind the seat. I never felt real comfortable riding in that truck. Looks like your ride does not have a filler cap behind the seat
