"Had a 454 but I just put this 355 in it"

Truck looks good man, but please tell me that you didn't take an original 454SS and put a SB in it.

an original 454 SS in 1988? i don't think so...lol. that was a 1988 C1500 someone put a 454 in. there are a lot of reasons to put a SB in place of a BB. in that truck, a 355 would give better economy and better handling attributes...

^I agree with fordeatinz71. Big blocks are really nice, but there's something to be said about a well built sb!

Re: Pics of my '88

Thanks guys.. The guy I bought it from took a TBI 454 and put in it. I did a carb replacement on it 2 years ago. The engine a developed a knock a few months later. I didn't want to rebuild it so I went with a sb instead. This one runs pretty good so far. Just finished putting it in this past tuesday.

Also another clue that it wasn't an 454ss is that it doesn't have bucket seats, and that it is white. They didn't make white untill the later years of making the 454ss iirc.


But it looks like a fine truck. :thumbup:

Nice truck!!

I love those wheels! my dad had those on his 92 GMC and they make any truck look good and they're american racing AR-23 incase you were wondering, also had a set on the 75 K10 and we found a set for the 91 Dodge cummins he drives back and forth to work...they look so nice.
