    2001 Chev Truck motor 4.8L V8

    Not the original cab. Gas tank NOT behind seat. Oh yea, that's me in the passenger seat!

    From his FaceBook post: 1968 Chevy C10 truck that I finished up for my wife Maria. The engine and transmission is out of a 2001 Chevy Truck (4.8l v8 with a 4 speed auto). The truck had no engine and transmission when we bought it so I needed something for it. The new motor and transmission are great, lots of power and sounds great but drives like a new truck and gets pretty decent gas mileage. Redid the interior, lowered the truck with a good suspension, added power disc brakes, power steering, moved the fuel tank to the rear out of the cab, added a 3rd brake light/ cargo lite on the back of the cab. Its a lot of fun to drive.
