Say hello to my new obsession, named Tom.
It's a 1979 Chevrolet C30 Custom with 96k original miles, and a lot of character.
Engine's a 292 Tall block straight six, hooked up to a SM465 granny 4-speed.

Modifications from the previous owner include a Clifford performance 4-barrel intake manifold, exhaust header, and valve cover. Carburetor is an Edelbrock 600 cfm, (I'm not sure of specifics) with an electric choke.

Besides all of that, the truck is pretty much stock.

Thank you! It gets grumpy when you try to start it cold, but the torque is monsterous, I can tell you that much. I'm not sure of the horsepower it puts down to the wheels to be honest. It's a big six so maybe somewhere around 150 hp?

@CorvairGeek Looks amazing under that hood! Honestly I wish my engine was that stock. The exhaust is cut off and replaced with a two piece header and flex-pipe tied together with clamps and bailing wire. lol
