    I just hope I don't hate those 4.11 gears.
    I wouldn't mind putting a different rear end (rear axle) under it, but I will want to keep the 6 lug wheels.

    I see some mods. A third brake light on the tailgate? No floor starter. No oil bath air cleaner. Chevy 350 workhorse.
    Are the wipers still vacuum?

    Mods, yep
    The holes of the rails of the bed are holding a 3rd brake lights, which also become white reverse light when in reverse, changed the vaccuum wiper motor to 3 spd electric, definitely changed that ol' 2 barrel carb to a 450 cfm 4 barrel carb, (I couldn't stand to have that old oil bath air cleaner in it) should be good for the ol 265 that is bored .030 over. Glasspack exhaust, this truck never did have the floor starter, has always been start with the key (at least for the 50 years it's been in this family), pertronix electronic ignition, (was unable to go HEI & keep the same size dist cap to be able to clear the firewall).
    Relocated fuel tank from behind seat to under the bed. Check out the pic & see the location of the fuel filler neck where probably no other 57 Chevy truck has.
    All Auto Meter guages with a GPS driven speedometer which is very neat.

    Thanks for the comments guys, just waiting on the insurance card so I can get the tag & get it out on the road for my maiden voyage in this beast.

    You could also try a little bit taller tires on the rear to effectively lower the ratio. With a GPS speedo, you wouldn't have to mess with speedo gear in the transmission.

    Sweet ride, by the way!
