1965 Chevrolet C-10 Shortbed - - 4x4 - - LS Swap - - Cold A/C

1965 Chevrolet Shortbed Pickup. Originally had a 350V8 in it which was removed with the 350 Auto trans. The engine and transmission (Vortec 6.0 LQ9 345hp/380lb ft/ 4L60E trans) that is currently in it came out of a 2004 Cadillac Escalade that had 117,000 miles upon it's removal and ran and drove perfectly. The donor Escalade was not a "Salvage" vehicle and was not involved in any prior accidents. The ECM/Computer remained with the engine upon removal. Installation of the engine and trans into the Pickup was straightforward utilizing "LSX" engine mounts. All new mandrel bent dualexhaust, 2.25", to Flo Pro mufflers. Has a nice "Rasp". A custom transmission crossmember was fabricated and bolted to the frame. (See Video Link)

There is one small shallow dent on passenger front fender. Photograph provided. Truck draws attention all the time.

The Truck has complete new body electrical harness and new modern style fuse box. Engine harness as mentioned above is factory Escalade.
