Here is Part 6 of the Gen III HEMI C10 build that Derek has dubbed the HemiHalf. It’s “together” but will it start and run so it can go to Moparty?
It’s been torn apart, mocked up, torn apart, and put back together to where it’s almost a finished truck. But will it be done in time for the Moparty event that is actually going on right this minute? It’s going to be a thrash to get it done, but Derek is a man who doesn’t stop. Watch.
The thought process here is that every conceivable vehicle on earth has already been LS swapped, so we need to start switching it up, and what better way to do that than to stuff a Gen III HEMI into a square body Chevrolet pickup that would have come with a small block Chevrolet most likely. After all, square-body GM trucks are prime candidates for LS swaps and it seems like it is getting harder and harder to find them with a small or big block still in them at any car shows and events.
I happen to love LS engines, but I own both small block and big block powered rides as well. I’m what you call an equal-opportunity GM power fanatic. But putting a HEMI into a square-body? Hmmmmm. Is Derek going too far?
You know he’s doing this as much because it’s simple as he is because it will piss people off.
