Banks purchased a running 1966 Chevy C20 3/4 ton pickup for $1. Yes, one dollar!
BANKS BUILT follows the team as they overhaul a very rusty ’66 Chevy C20. A land-speed world record holder and legend in the performance aftermarket, Gale Banks is regarded as the Godfather of diesel performance. He’s most known recently as the exclusive engine supplier for the Joint Light Tactical Vehicle Program. Thousands of JLTVs are powered by Banks’ Duramax 6.6 liter engines. So, what engine do you suppose will find its way into this old Chevy? You may be surprised.
What should we do to this 1966 Chevy?
