Some things, no matter how much you try and take care of them, just wear out over time or need to be improved. For instance, if you fancy the look of the bedwood your Chevy pickup originally came with, it’s only a matter of time before the elements have rotted it out or you just decided to convert your metal floor to the more appealing aesthetic of wood and stainless strips. Thankfully, companies like Bruce Horkey’s Wood and Parts have got you and your pickup bed covered.
Brakes need constant maintenance and many have made the jump to convert their older GM cars to disc. Wilwood’s AFX kit will help you in converting or upgrading your factory GM disc brakes for the 1964-’72 A-body, 1967-’69 F-body, and 1964-’74 X-body. Thinking of adding accessories to your engine? Of course you are. You need the right system to turn all those components though, and Eddie Motorsports’ S-Drive Plus Serpentine Pulley Drive System can handle all that torque and make your engine look good doing it.
