One of me favourite YouTube programmes is Vice Grip Garage. I've been a fan since the first 'rescue' I watched which he revived (1968 Malibu two door) around two years ago. His latest project is a 1982 C10 long bed (he loves the so-called Square Body Chevy & GMC pickups [1973-1987 vintage], and has quite a few of them).

The catch?

He's swapping in a 354 (5,7 litre) Hemi from a police Charger, backed by a 46RE (formerly, A-518, which is an overdrive-equipped A-727) -- hence, the nomenclature of Hemi-Half; a play on Chevy's Heavy-Half  and  Hemi engine.

This is the 3rd installment in this project; follow links to the preceding two installments (I recommend watching all of his 'rescues'). 

I really like that Derek involves his wife and sons in his projects (on their volition).
