1963 GMC Truck with LS3 Engine and a 5-Speed

Scorching ROD Power Tour Offered by HP Tuners and Pushed by Continental Tire

We ended up just about to purchase a taco when we realized that Barry Higgins’ 1963 GMC C1000 was not a food stuff truck at all. In its place, it was a slammable personalized driver with an LS3 swap and a cool classic canopy.

Just before the arrival of the massive box van that is common with the food truck group, eats have been served from a pickup truck with a cover extremely similar to the a person you see below. There was an ice tray comprehensive of Orange Fanta and a rack of cookies. If you wished one thing very hot, it was pulled from a boxy electric hotter or fished out of a vat of hot h2o. That film floating on the best additional additional flavor.

Barry must have remembered this era when he caught sight of this splendor in inventory condition—sans the sizzling puppy water. He bought it promptly. Being aware of that the truck was almost excellent already, he additional the requisite LS motor swap and adhere change for some class and dependability, dropped it on the floor using a GSI chassis and some air springs and called it a day.

The rest of the truck is inventory. The paint you see is as shut to original as achievable with a handful of squirts right here and there to protect against rust and other ugliness. Just after cleansing and swapping, the truck was set on the road for cruising. We found it parked in close proximity to Boris Maryanofsky’s non-public junkyard in Euclid, Ohio, on the way to Incredibly hot ROD Energy Tour 2021.
