55 chev. V12

Postby itsmehb » Sun Mar 05, 2017 4:04 pm

Friend sent me this and I just had to share. I was 19 years old when this came out, and it remains one of my favorite all time cars. GM'S first venture into the small block v8's for the chev. This is one of most unique builds I've seen.

1990 Amigo, 2.3 5 speed (sold)
1991 Pick up (long gone)
2000 Amigo, 2.2 5 speed(sold)
1985 Trooper 1.9 4 speed (sent back to KS)
1989 Trooper RS 2.6 5 spd. Red

We get too soon old and too late smart!

Damn, those old guys do some really fine work!

Marine engine too. Wonder if you could fit one in a Trooper...
