This monstrosity was what got me into 4wheel drive vehicles. This was built by one of my best friends when we were graduating high school in 1981. "THE STOMPER" is a Chevy 3/4 ton drivetrain with a 283 small block and a turbo 400 transmission. The body is a 1973 Chevy Impala mounted to the frame on solid rubber blocks. Top speed was 65 mph and was fairly smooth. The vehicle had to be registered in New York State as a custom vehicle because of the unmatching numbers on frame , motor, and body. My buddy decided to build "THE STOMPER" because it wasn't any fun with just 3 people 4 wheelin and drinking back in the day. This was much better and we could invite some of the female persuation to go 4 wheelin with us. This monster NEVER got stuck once and we used to run power lines with this so you know we went through some deep stuff!!!! He won 2 best in show 4x4 awards at car shows. It later became a plow vehicle and worked nicely and didn't need plow lights because of it's heighth!! LOL. I hope you find it as interesting as we did!!!! THOSE WERE THE DAYS!!!!!
