Re: Short bed Chevy longer or shorter?
Like I said in my post I had 4 67/72 Chevy trucks.. 3 of the 4 had the parallel rear spring option. If I were in the market that would be #1 look for on my list.... there great for towing . 2nd is a learned lesion. One icy morning on the way to work .... just filled the tank with Sunoco 260 a guy slides through a stop sign, I steer corrected but fool locked up and COMMING out into the t intersection.
Hit me right in the rear wheel . .sending me sideways in to a guardrail.. the Rear G 70 15 climbs the guardrail and I was sliding on it's steel track... suspending the back tires off the ground , telephone/utility pole closing the distant FAST . It slams the car corner and the bed side at the seam at the Drivers door I grab the steering wheel and Hurst shifter.... Bam THAT VARY UNIGUE sound.. We came to rest truck still in gear
454 Screaming with a stuck throttle, I try to get out but my seat belt holding me in place I then notice me feet WET .... You guessed it, The pole punched the fuel tank filler neck and cap inside the truck and opened the seam of the Fuel tank.... I was ankle deep in Sunoco 260 with a pegged revving big block which was now flouting the lifters .I Don't remember GETTING OUT OF THE CAB just reaching in the open hood side and ripping the wire's out of the HEI dist. Now id did something I am not proud of ( The truck was a Super Cheyanne 0 tow tone hugger orange/white black gut, I just finished the truck that early FALL .
I went over and started in the startled driver..... The Whitehall Police came out of know wear and drug me away .....
