      It's a giant cookie tin on wheels with an utterly conventional Chevrolet engine, transmission, and rear end underneath. This is a very generic answer to a very generic question

      Very cool truck. Go for an apache from the early/mid 60's. They're pretty much a suburban that has no windows and 2 doors.

      I wonder, with maybe a newer variety, say a mid to late 80's model...what kind of engine swaps you could squeeze into one?

      my dad had a 400ci V8 in his Chevrolet Beauville. That thing could be heard a mile away. My bro and I knew exactly when to clean up the house

      How do you pronounce that?
      "boville"?
      "byooville"?
      "buhville"?

      be brave and be kind.
