Is therea specific year-range we're considering?  Trucks were boxy from the late 60's until...?


Always looking for "t" gusset Takaras- Frames, frame sets, or completes.  Also any Odyssey 2000 brakes/parts(the cross-drilled ones)-Sets, orphan handles and calipers, just about anything.

No.  Square Chevys are 1973-1987 pick ups, and 1973-1991 K5 Blazers, Suburbans and crew cabs.

I know that. I owned a 77 for a long time. Let me state it better for you. I started this thread for 1973-1987 Chevy Pickups. But go ahead and post whatever year Chevy Pickup you want as a few already did in the past on this thread cool

Re: Square Body Chevy's-Who's a fan?

I can't believe I've missed this thread all this time! I sold my '87 R30 ccdrw in March. I drove it as my daily anytime I worked local for 3 years and miss it terribly!

Was flat back with a 4/6 static drop on 19" Frito truck wheels.

Loved the TBI because it ran like a modern truck and looked like a locomotive. Pictures to come.

I'm and idiot and impulse bought a '95 f350 with a 7.3 psd crew cab 4x4 and couldn't justify both trucks...

Re: Square Body Chevy's-Who's a fan?

I've had a ton of Chevy trucks, a bigger sickness in my life than bikes, can't find any pics of the square bodies I've had.

The '52 Chevy I had when my wife and I got married, no, she didn't make me sell, she was actually mad I sold it. It was clipped, running an Olds 350 and a 200R4, it had disc brakes and power steering.

The '50 5 window I picked up for a father/son project when my son gets old enough. We'll see where the plans go, but I'm not planning a stock type build.

I'll have to try to dig up pics of the others I've owned.

Thinking of going with something street/strip friendly, going to encourage my son to take it to the strip and do a lot less street racing than I did.

I miss my square! I'd set my OBS F350 (7.3) on fire in my front yard today to bring back my C30.

Re: Square Body Chevy's-Who's a fan?

I've seen mine for sale up on Bakersfield Craigslist a few times, but the guy who bought it made such a mess of it that I couldn't bring myself to buy it back.

I'll do another one some day. Just impossible to find the time. I think I'm at 2+ years on the LS2 swap in my Camaro...

Re: Square Body Chevy's-Who's a fan?

Thinking maybe a '73-'75 step side and go more "muscle car" or vintage trans am style with it next time I decide to do something stupid...

Cool to see some USA iron here, i always thought most old school bmxers were low rider import drivers. I might have to start an old Ford truck thread
