What's been taking up my free time lately 71 Chevy C10 SWB

Over the last 2 years my dad and I have been very busy doing a full frame off restore on a 71 Chevy C10 SWB we picked up. Which is why the progress on the Ranger has been a little on the slow side the last couple years. I won't go into much detail about this truck unless someone asks. But I'll let the pictures talk. I have hundreds of pictures but will stick to the important ones for now.

Thanks guys, it's been a lot of work. Right now it's got a 3" drop in the front and a 5" drop in the rear. In the near future we're gonna get rid of the coil springs and install a air bag setup.

In the last few weeks we got the interior put back together, fuel tank installed and exhaust installed.

The engine really isn't nothing spectacular. It's a stock 71 chevy 350 block, previous owner had done a rebuild on the bottom end, new pistons, rings, rods and bearings. We installed a voodoo cam with .504 lift on exhaust, .502 lift on intake, dont remember the duration and timing specs of it. We then grabbed some vortec heads off a mid 90s sbc and had a machine shop rebuild them. It's got double roller rockers, high volume oil pump, hei distrubuter, edelbrock intake amd edelbrock 1406 carburetor. Then it was paired with a 2004r overdrive transmission.
