Our 1977 Chevy Scottsdale truck dubbed “Sorority Girl” is finished, again! When we bought this sweet ol’ girl it was already finished. If you remember though on a taco run she caught fire under the hood. Luckily somebody noticed and we got it out, but not before some damage was done, but overall the truck survived.
Well as the story goes, instead of just fixing we started upgrading. Once that ball gets rolling it’s hard to stop. If anybody knows Pro Touring Texas, they know that we love our LS engines like we love our burnouts. That meant we ditched the SBC and upgraded to an LT engine for plenty of power. Then we upgraded the inner fenders from Josh Hart and added our custom plaid treatment. The smooth firewall and custom paint hide the Vintage air A/C system beautifully.
To toss a few more upgrades at the truck we installed a set of American bad ass Baer brakes. When the Bald Eagles are unleashed under the hood, these brakes will bring us to a safe stop. Or you know, let us do some big smoky burnouts. We also upgraded the suspension to a complete RideTech suspension system to let this Sorority Girl handle the corners with ease and to keep us from getting beat up going down the road.
A complete Painless Performance wiring harness was installed. After all, an electrical fire is was got us into this predicament in the first place so we wanted to make sure we had zero electrical issues anymore. A set of custom Pro Touring Texas edition Dakota Digital gauges were added as well to keep tabs on things under the hood. Billet Specialties “Razor” wheels were wrapped in Nitto INVO tires, 285-40-19 front and 345-30-19 rear, respectively.
This might just be our favorite build yet. So much so that it isn’t even for sale…but make an offer.
