We have an awesome customer build of the week for you all! Today we are featuring Ron T.'s 1946 Chevy shortbed pickup on the Code 504 41-46 Chevy Short bed S-10 Conversion Kit!
Ron has installed an LS2 motor with a Fitech Fuel Injection Ultimate LS Tall EFI Induction System, backed by a 4L60E automatic transmission.
His rear axle is a 9" Ford with Limited Slip, 31 spline 10 bolt, with a disc brake conversion. His 46 Chevy sits on a 1997 Chevy S-10 frame, and he used the reduction kit to attain the 118" wheelbase.
His suspension consists of a 2" drop in the rear, and stock S-10 suspension in the front. For a wheel/ tire combo, Ron installed 2012 camaro wheels, with the rears being a 225/50 R20, and the fronts being a 245/45 ZR20.
He also installed the Code 504 Complete Brake Pedal Assembly and the Code 504 41-46 Chevy Radiator Assembly.
Thank you very much for the info and photos, Ron! Have fun with it!
