    This is one of my favorite pic of river cruising. The truck is an 81 Chevy short bed with an inline six 250, 465, 208, 10B, 12B, 4" lift, and 33" tires. That truck was one of my favorite ones. It would go ANYWHERE!!! I tried sooooo hard to blow up that inline six, but no luck at all!!!!! [​IMG] Wished I kept that bad boy!!! [​IMG]

    Cool pic! I had a friend that bought a '82 chevy PU from a power company auction, it had a straigt six in it and it was a 1/2 ton 4x4 with a eight foot step side bed and a granny low four speed. That truck would go anywere and that motor ran and ran until a power line with too steep of a descend starved the motor for oil and the thing seized! It was fun while it lasted.

    Beauty truck - I'm putting a 292 I-6 in my prerunner project. Lots of power AND decent mileage. Wish I'd got that one from you.

    this is what my grandmother used to ALWAYS say:
    THE DIFFERANCE BETWEEN MEN AND BOYS ARE THE PRICE OF THEIR TOYS.
    because he loves cars, he has a fully restored 66 mustang, fully restored studibaker avanti, [no sure the year]
    an 89 Dodge dakota sport truck that is convertable!!! [they only made those in 89-90 i believe] and he has a 2001 porsche boxster.

    Inlines 6's rule!!!! I've got a 292 in my truck and I'm shooting too get 200 ponys and 300 pounds of tourque AT the wheels when I build it a bit.
    For those that might want too know I'll be putting a new intake and some kind of 4 barrel carb on it, New exhaust from the header back, A cam, And I'll get the heads milled and maybe bore the block a bit if it needs it and and throw some better pistons in there.

    [​IMG]Inline 6's are cool[​IMG]

    Looked like a good truck to convert to a 1 ton drivetrain.

    Yeah, I almost did that! I had a D60 and 14FF totally rebuilt with 4.56 gears and Detroits front and rear!!! I was just about to install those into that truck until I found a blue '84 K30 and bought it. I sold the blue '81 you see on this post to buy some new tires and rims for the '84. BIG MISTAKE!!! [​IMG] Now, I wished I kept that '81 shorty!!! [​IMG] I eventually sold the axles to my buddy who has the Ford with the 46" Firestones!!! [​IMG]

    Those inline 6's were tough dudes! A buddy of mine had one in Massachusetts. The body was shot, so it was headed to the junkyard. He started the engine and laid a brick on the gas pedal, just to see what would happen. 15 minutes later it was still screaming, with no apparent ill effects! He finally drained the oil and the radiator and tried it again. It still took about 20 minutes to finally die. [​IMG]

    I've never had the little 250s but I had two 292s. One in an old Chevy. That thing was THE stuff. Not a hot rod but it would just run and run... The other was in a 1 ton 69 GMC dual wheel chassis cab (11,000 lb stock with extra overloads) truck that I converted to a 2 car hauler. I’ve carried a Sub 4x4 with a Caddy big block AND an old full size 4 door LTD at the SAME TIME through back roads and hills in northern AL/TN. Wasn’t very fast but you would be surprised (well, most people would) what that little 292 could do. Just lug and lug all day without complaint. My only complaint with that truck was that you couldn’t stop it loaded (some scary stories - single master, no booster, and front drums!) until I bolted a 78 3/4 ton disk front (same as 1 ton and a “bolt in”) under there along with the power actuator and dual master. Man, I miss my hauler...
