1937 Chevrolet Pickup Truck AAA Road Test Original Report

1937 Chevrolet 1/2 ton Pickup Truck hauls 1000 pound load for 10,224 miles around the nation. Detroit to Detroit in 1937. Gas was relatively expensive in 1937. At 20.5 cents a gallon, it was comparable to the price today if you figure overall inflation. The total cost to haul the 1000 pound load was less than 1 cent per mile, and the total cost of repair parts for the trip was 73 cents.

This truck had the accessory, tandem wiper assembly like the one on my 1937 Chevy Truck. It also sports the single fog light like I did on mine. I know my trip around the nation in my 37 Chevy cost a lot more in 2007 but I averaged a lot higher speed as well. Their speed in 1937 was 31.18 miles per hour, but then the roads were nothing like they are today. I maintained 70 miles per hour most of the way across on the return trip.

235 261 Chevrolet Split Dual Exhaust Headers For Sale

For Sale 235 261 Chevy Header Split Exhaust Manifold. Fenton makes the ordinary everyday run of the mill exhaust that you can buy cheap, so if you're looking for cheap then read no further. To split a manifold like this, you will need to first locate that exceptionally nice part. You will need another manifold for the second flange. You need the cutting tools and the blasting equipment to clean the manifold. You need the skill to operate the tools. You will need a head with intake that you can bolt it all to and an oven that it will fit into for preheating and post cooling. If you have the skill to do the special cast iron welding, you can save a lot of time running to and from the specialized welding shop to have that portion done. I won't be doing another one of these for speculation. If you add it all up, the cost to do one like this would exceed $1000.00. I would only do it if I intended to use it on my own vehicle, and I do have one on my 1937 Chevy Pickup already, that I did several years ago. You can own this very special manifold for $325.00 plus shipping.
