The truck, which has already won Goodguys awards, was once used as a farm truck. Yancey Taylor has owned the truck since he was 15 years old, and after heading off to the Marine Corps, settled down in Vegas and began an eight-year, frame- off restoration with friends. Initial paint, body and interior work was completed at Divine One Customs and engine work at Johnny D's Auto. After being out on the show circuit, the truck is now with Close Fabri- cations for additional fabrication and paint touches to take it to the next level. The pickup is powered by a small- block Chevy 350 bored 60-over with GM Vortec heads. Other engine upgrades include: Isky Racing Cams cam; MAHLE pistons and rings; Edel- brock high-rise intake; Billet Special- ties billet valve covers, air cleaner and "polished" front running system; 650 Demon Carburetor with custom chrome linkage; Hedman Hedders; Be Cool aluminum radiator; GM 700R4 transmission; and Flowmaster exhaust. Other participants include: CPP (sus- pension, brake parts); Air Ride Tech- nology; Raceline Wheels; Ididit; Auto Meter; Boese Engineering; Glide Engineering; House of Kolor; Broth- er's Truck Parts; Ogden Chrome; and Bed Wood & Parts. 1966 Chevy Stepside C10 Pickup 2015 Ford F-150
