I chose the 348 for mine because the truck will be one of a kind and I wanted a different motor than the usual small or big block.
My very first vehicle was a 52 chevy pickup, always just loved them.Years after my original went to the junk yard, my neighbor decided to sell his 53 and he knew I wanted it so we made the deal.As for the engine, I also wanted something different, I was looking at inline 6's out of Trailblazers,actually had an LS1 motor and trans out of a 98 T/A planned to go in it.One day at work ( I work at a farm implement dealer ) an old havester came in for junk and it had a 348 in it, that is when I thought cool and different.Thats a short version of how it all came to be.
