Update: ’94 Chevy Silverado

Filed under: Projects — Tags: — blasterhappy @ 7:53 am

Well I’m still waiting on two tires so I can put my new tires and wheels on.  Summit came through and corrected their goof and I now have a complete set (correct sizes) of Cragar Soft 8s with knock-offs and two 245/60R/15 Cooper Cobra GT tires for the front.  I’m still waiting on my 295/50R/15 tires for the rear that I bought on eBay.

I got the ’94 Silverado cut and buffed and it looks great.  The paint was oxidized and a bit faded but it came back to a pretty decent shine.  I also removed the old body side molding just leaving the fender chrome.  There are a few paint chips and scratches here and there that need touched up but overall the truck looks better than it has in a long time.

I’m still working on the guy that has the SBC 350 Police Interceptor and transmission.  He is wanting a certain amount while I’m wanting to pay a certain amount so I’m gonna sit on it for a bit and see what happens.  He and I are friends but go back and forth like two kids trading marbles.  I hope to get the setup and stay under budget for the build.

Unfortunately it looks as if I will not be doing the ’67 Chevy C10 Rat Rod project.  Since I’m building the ’94 Silverado to be an all around Street Rod that will double for a Mule to pull the ’71 Camaro z28 RS it made more since to build the Silverado and invest the money in it than a lengthy project like the C10.

The ’67 Chevy C10 Stepside will be posted For Sale soon here on M3.

I’m hoping to get M3 caught up this weekend so stay tuned for the updates.  I’ve been a bit under the weather this week so posts have been a bit sparce this week.

  1. Dang, if only I had the money and space for that C10, I would take that Chevy in a heartbeat (pun intended)

    Good call on the Silverado though, I’m sure the newer safety features will help you sleep better once the kids are old enough to borrow it. Are we ever going to see pictures of this green beast?

  2. Yes, you will! As soon as the rain eases here I plan to get some pics taken and posted. Wish I would have taken some before the cut and buff though. Anyway look for some before and after pics soon.
