Hi guys,

I'm in the UK,
A internetphobic friend of mine recently bought a modified Chevrolet LUV and we are trying to find some information about its history. It was imported from USA, he bought it from a dealer. I found an old advert online which seems to be the same truck, http://chevrolet.offerclassiccars.com/c ... ckups/6133

Apparently it has 327 SBC in it, and would like to know some information about the engine so we can make a plan regarding tuning it.
It's a pretty quick little truck, so someone has put some time, money and love into this LUV. It looks great too, paintwork is immaculate. It has louvers in the bonnet which I think would be a bit distinctive.
It has SBC, th350 gearbox, Ford 9 inch rear axle, aluminium radiator, rear bed cover.
Looking on the LUV register I found a description that sounds like the tuck

I've added some pictures, if anyone knew of this truck I'd love to hear about its history.

Welcome!

I did some looking and couldn't find that guy on the forum. It's possible he joined but never posted and eventually got deleted.

Good lookin truck. I don't think we have any UK members here other than you. A few Aussies and one or 2 in South Africa though. :)

Welcome!
Well, it wasn't the truck I thought it was, do you have any pics from the side?

Hi,

Thanks for your replies.
I also tried searching for the user with the description that matched the truck but couldn't find them.

It also looks to have had a aluminium bumper made for it.

This is a picture of the rear quarter if that is any help

it's parked up for now, needs some more work doing to it

I remember seeing that truck on Craigslist last year. I think it was in Vegas or Bakersfield if I remember correctly. Nice truck and Welcome!

Thanks for the replies. The truck will be coming back in to me soon for me to fit an electric power steering column, new fuel tank and some electrical work. I'll try and post some updates when I do
