Re: Ford Powered Chevys... what?
He did it with my preferred body style of GM truck too. Great find! Only way I could drive a GM product is the running gear has to be Ford. That truck actually was improved by the Ford engine!
As for my Monto (Pinto running gear+Monza body), got that GM 2300 & Turdbo 200 removed and am now stripping the remains of the rolled over Pinto of the wiring harness and engine/trans. I got the touch and the power to better that GM product with Ford parts from an ill fated car that will live on to better another car destined for a steel haul or for a Bowtie to put another worthless powerplant into it while hacking it up in all ways possible. I'm happy with keeping this car a 4 banger and the only thing I would change that I havent already is make it a manual but I'll save that for some other GM H-Body to get it. I really hope to get a super strong, racing grade 2500cc and update it with a DOHC 16V Volvo head and put that engine in a Cosworth Vega!
Here's the article of the Volvo 16V head swap if you're curious about that.
