Cabs Ready for C10 Nationals Powered By BluePrint Engines

Cabs Ready for C10 Nationals Powered By BluePrint Engines

Our friends at Premier Street Rod Parts and Manufacturing are taking three of their favorite rides to the C10 Nationals in Fort Worth, Texas this week!

Premier Street Rod Parts is located in Lake Havasu City, Arizona and specializes in parts for the first and second series of Chevrolet truck cabs and other classic cars. These beauties are custom-finished in a purple and silver color combination, a stark white, and a forest green. All three are powered by our BluePrint crate engines!

C10 Nationals is known as “America’s Truck Event,” and features a truck show, a burnout contest, and other activities for gear-heads.

We absolutely love seeing customer photos! Be sure to keep submitting them on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest by tagging #BluePrintEngines. You can submit your photos and car stories via email to info@blueprintengines.com too!

BluePrint 427CI Takes on the Land of Fire and Ice

BluePrint 427CI Takes on the Land of Fire and Ice

We recently received this note from Iceland resident, Anna Guðnadóttir, about our BluePrint 427CI!

My name is Anna. My boyfriend Haukur and I own a Formula Offroad racing team in Iceland called Team #16. Haukur is also the driver.

Haukur bought in 2015 the engine PSLS4272CTF from BluePrint and put it in an offroad truck that he had. He bought the engine through an Icelandic company called Jeppasmidjan that also imported the engine to us in Iceland.

We are extremely pleased with this engine, so much we decided to build a new offroad truck last year to fit the engine better. Together we built a new truck called “Hekla” after an active volcano in Iceland.

And the new truck is amazing and has been really successful in Iceland its first season. We have been running the engine with nitrous (100hp to 150hp) since 2015 with no complications.

You can learn more about Iceland Offroad racing and Team #16 by visiting this website, and can view videos of Anna and Haukur’s trucks on YouTube!

Thanks so much for sharing with us Anna!

BluePrint Chevy 400 SBC Installed in Italy

With beautiful landscapes, delicious kinds of pasta, and even better wine, Italy is a country known for its slow paces and even faster cars.

From Fiat to Maserati, Lamborghini and Ferrari, there is no shortage of Italian-made stallions on and off the race tracks.

That’s why we were tickled at BluePrint Engines to receive a customer submission all the from Bel Paese, or “the beautiful country.”

1950 Chevy Truck Italy

 

This 1950 Chevy truck is simply stunning. Featuring one of our BluePrint 400 SBC crate engines, it has a deep cherry red finish (or maybe a deep purple depending on the light) that must be the envy of its Italian neighborhood.

We love seeing customer photos and hope that more of our crate engines make their way not only across the United States but around the world too.

Whether you’re adding a new crate engine into a hot rod, or a classic like this 1950 Chevy, keep in mind that BluePrint Engines offers the industry's best-in-class warranty.

If only we could take a company trip to Italy to test drive that Chevy...
