1991 Chevy S10: Timmy the truck

Just a simple 4.3 V6 shortbed S10 with a finish only mother nature could create. It’s dropped a few inches on springs and spindles up front and leaves and blocks out back. The wheels are late eighties Caprice and the center caps are from a ’70’s C10. The grille came from the sorta-rare Oldsmobile Bravada. This was a fun little truck and came out just how I wanted when I was done.

I will build at least two more some day.

Probably my favorite picture of Timmy.

Love the Bravada grille! It reminds me of the late ’70’s Pontiac Firebird.  RTimmy the truck (17)

Timmy did work too, hauling a bed full of stuff on a regular basis. This load was towards th end of a 300 mile day, and consisted of 4 nascar wheels and tires, 2 loose nascar tires, a pair of Ikea wardrobes and a good sized cabinet (along with a bunch of smaller odds and ends.)

I tried to run a set of Corvette ZR1 wheels but the fronts were more of a challenge than I had time to sort out. Still, the 315 width rear tires on the 17×11 wheels looked right tucked up under the fenders.
