On the first Friday of every August, there is a gargantuan car show in the little town of Monmouth, Illinois. This year brought me to Monmouth and what a show it was!
Amongst all the fine specimens – highlights will be featured another time – was this innocuous looking Chevrolet S-10. With polished S-10 pickups being routine fare at shows for some unfathomable reason, I almost didn’t look at it. Then, the engine bay caught my eye.
A Ford flathead V8! This is such a wonderful and creative inversion of placing a Chevrolet engine in a Ford, Toyota, Packard, etc.
Whomever did this expanded the conversion to the interior, also. Kudos to this person!
