Chevy hub caps added 35+ HP and greatly increased the trucks dependability....
No, really the truck had no hubcaps when I bought it, so I put the Chevy caps on since they were just laying around in my way all the time. One of my trailers has Ford 5x5 pattern wheels... and Chevy caps too lol.
Here's my '73. I bought it back in 94 off of a broke farmer for $200 with a rusted out body and a 302/4sp. Ditched the 302 for a 390/c6 and painted it bright silver (after a lot of bodywork). Then decided to put in a 460/c6. After that, I found a body off of a 76 that was in near mint condition (no rust, great interior)for $400. It's in the bodywork prep stages at the moment to fix mirror holes and minor dents in the box.
So far, I have built a 3-link airbag rear suspension for it, lowered it slightly, had 200 HP nitrous, and Holley pro-jection (the good analog 2V one). I dyno'd it 2 weeks ago with the bone stock 460 8.9:1 comp. (with FI and headers) and it has an insanely flat 350 ft. lb. torque "curve" from 2250 to 3500 RPM (and it's a straight line!!) 235 HP/353 ft.lb.
Future plans are either two GT3571 twin turbos or one GT4294 turbo. Expecting to make the 295/50-15s smoke at 60+ MPH with 450/700.
this is my truck
its a F250 camper special with a 460 ci engine
there are not much of these trucks in the netherlands
i run the engine on LPG, that's 60 eurocents a liter.
petrol is 145 eurocents a liter.
Nice Truck Andre. Was the conversion to LPG difficult?
no, i have replaced the carb for a impco 425 lpg carb that was mounted on a holley base plate.
i have switched the rear tank for a lpg ringtank(95 liter) and behind the cab under the bed a 45 liter tank on both sides. total 185 liter.
under the hood i have a impco lpg converter (model E) that feeds the 425 lpg carb
it runs 10 m/gallon.
its the same setup if you drive on propane.
lpg is a mix of propane and butane
