Grab your Pizza and your "BOC" (Beverage Of Choice) and sit back while enjoying the views in Time Lapse of a 1950s Chevrolet Pick Up Truck during its (6) Cylinder Engine Resurrection ...and all of the "Rest of the Restoration":

This brings back so many memories. i'm pretty sure the head to one of these is in my garage now, i know the rims are in the attic, and the hood emblem. My dad restored a '49 gmc, then sold it to buy and restore a '50 chevy 3100. and my uncle who lived 2 doors down, had '54

Ahhh... But LOOK at that Iconic Piece of 'Mobile Americana' in your hand, Brother. Priceless!

That was a great job on that video. lol..I blew up more of those Stovebolts than I ever rebuilt. That vintage would have had babitt bearings though, not the inserts shown, so they must have done a conversion....smart.
