5.3 LS Swap: 1971 Chevrolet C20 Longbed Pickup

People on the interwebs use the term “LS” to describe just about any small block Chevy V8 from the last 20 years — but the more accurate term is the Gen III, IV, & V small block V8. Gens I & II were based on the original 1955 small block V8, but in 1996, GM released the first version of what has become the most desirable engine swap candidate since the original Gen I/II small block.  Anyway, today’s “LS” has found its way into a 1971 Chevrolet C20 Longbed offered for $8,500 in San Fernando Valley, CA via craigslist.
