Shawn's 521


Recommended Posts

The truck is a convertible and will stay a convertible.  He is building a removable hard top for Shade from the AZ sun.  He is using this truck as a daily driver and with a shaved head it is cooking him.


More progress

If you have not noticed on the windshield is AZ Dime Petitioner sticker.  AZ dimes is a Chevy S10 club here in AZ.  Shawn is the first foreign truck running with them.  Kind of a square peg in a round hole!!!  ROFLMAO

Shawn Came over today and did some work for me on my 520.


His 521 also received some love, OEM NOS Nissan back glass and new rubber seal.  I also hooked him up with a repalcement speedo, a better set of 720 oil pressure and volt  gages, and a 720 1 piece drive line.

Plan a trip down here Loren!  I am sure he would be more than happy to take you for a ride.  I am trying to get him to bring his truck to Fontana CA for our SWDP Barbecue on August 12th.


He is afraid of getting it impounded in CA.  I do not blame him.  I 1973 I lost a 1950 Sudebaker Champion to the West Covina County Sheriffs.  Impound and towing came to over $4400 and in the early seventies that was a lot of cash for a 16 year old to cough up.

He has not finished the roof. He is talking about designing and building a vert soft top that will collapse on it's self.. I told him I wanted to see the removable hard top finished and painted to match.

Shawn is picking up a twin cam KA on Monday for this truck.  Next time I see him I will get pictures of the new interior and dash the he has done.


Redeye the 521 KA mounts I won from you will be going into Shawn's 521.


He is giving me  his rebuilt Z24 that will go into my 84 720 King Cab ST.
