Trapper John's '51 Chevy Ol' Skool


This is my '51 Chevy Styleline Deluxe as it appeared in Ol' Skool Rodz in the Sept. '06 issue. A 261 inch motor from a '58 dump truck provides the power put thru the old three speed tranny. The rear end is out of a '54 Chevy Powerglide car for the 3:55 gear set. Fenton headers take the spent gas out thru full length lakes pipes running uncapped. The intake charge enters thru a couple of Carter two barrels and on thru an Offy manifold into the "848" head that has been shaved a bit.
This car carries me about 10,000 miles a year all over the southeastern United States covering car and  bike events for Gulf Coast Motorsports magazine.   Thanks for your consideration,  Inliners rule!
