1951 CHEVROLET THRIFTMASTER CUSTOM PICKUP V8 engine


Description


Ultimately, AccuAir air-ride system was chosen for its handling stability and performance, both due to the inherent progressive spring rate that system offers. Air ride also allows the vehicle to be lowered completely for display, emphasizing this amazing custom Chevrolet's classic lines. The pickup's show-winning paint finish comes courtesy of several coats of Porsche Graphite Blue Metallic, an iridescent coating that lights up under show-hall illumination and bright sunlight. Mar-K Manufacturing fabricated the custom tailgate and hand-fabricated the wood bed, staining the boards in a dark gray to complement the truck's superb paint and trimming it with polished stainless-steel cargo strips. Offsetting that subtle but effective color treatment are one-off custom show wheels manufactured by American Racing and finished with a bronze-anodized coating with contrasting machined highlights. Behind those, Wilwood vented disc brakes with 6-piston calipers provide the stopping power. This Chevy's power comes from a GM 6.0-liter V8 engine, which has been pumped up with a Whipple Roots-style supercharger, a high-performance camshaft and tube headers leading to dual side-exit exhaust outlets. An automatic transmission delivers the V8's output to a stout rear end.
