A 5-speed flathead! Can't wait to see it.

there's a company that makes the bell housing conversion useing a 5 spd from a s-10. Haven't decided on the induction yet; carbs, blower of FI. My grandfather bought this truck back in 53 then gave it to me when I was 16. It's not about building a fast truck (about 4700lb), it more about the cool factor. Pretty hard to make a tank fast with a flathead.
