Gone Postal! - LS Swapped Mail Truck - Holley LS Fest

By: Ray Frescas | 09/11/2019 < Back to Motor Life Home

David Stacy has gone postal at Holley LS Fest East with his LS swapped mail truck. His LS-powered postal truck will guarantee overnight burning rubber delivery. Watch him send it at Beech Bend drag strip and the burnout competition!

I'm David Stacey, I'm from Indiana, I've come to LS Fest for ten years now, and I wanted something different, two years ago we were driving and the mailman pulled out in front of us, I told my old lady, I think we should do a post office truck for LS Fest. Alright, let's start looking for one. Took two years to find it, it was in my home town is where it was at, sitting by somebody's garage and my uncle helped me get it and it pretty much got it and we got to build it and when you're building it it's like, jeez you've got to get all of these parts and then a lot of people have helped me, you guys have helped me, just getting things going, Summit, JEGS.

Started, it was running in four-cylinder mode in July and it's September now and I had it done two days ago, and it was running two days ago and today we finally got all of the bugs mostly out of it and some little things done but it's running now. Two years in my head and then less than two months making. A debut at where else? LS Fest, the ten-year anniversary, that was my goal. Something stuck out, something, my goal was to see if I could get it on a tee-shirt.

Gosh, there's so many people, I was 60 miles out, my trailer broke its axle and we had to drive it here. Stopped at a gas station, some guy pulls up, kid, a younger guy, and his girlfriend or whatever, he's like, yeah that's it! And then he gets out of his car and he came up and shook my hand, and was like, that's the LS postal truck, I saw it on Facebook and everywhere! Oh ok. It blew up like I didn't think that it was going to and I've gone postal.

All of my life, I've been working on cars with my uncles since I was 13-14 years old, working on semis and I started working on my own stuff, I've got a 32x40 shop.

Got a Holley mid-rise intake, I've got your Holley 42cc injectors, we'd like to have a lot more just not right now, I just don't have the funds right now but I've got a lot of other stuff on there as well.

Couldn't find anything on there for cold air induction so I took an SS 2012 cold air inductions kit, cut it up and put it on there.

I had to do the modification on the steering on it, it's running a 6L90 transmission, LY6 6-liter in it, custom driveshaft, it's got an 8.8 Explorer 9 cut, 4-wheel disk brake, get a lot of the GM parts you see on there,they all came from a local dealership, I buy them myself, they hook me up over there.

It's always nice knowing the local GM dealership, they can help you out. And a lot of people at O'Rileys, AutoZone. Intake and fuel rails, I got that at AutoZone. I was like wow, they sold me that and I was like, alright.

So we heard you are going to enter the burnout contest. I'm going to try but, yes I am. We brought some tires that we can destroy, brand new ones, we'll see how that works out. Everybody else will probably go right, I'll be going left, or the other way around, I don't want to fall out of the truck. It's a little top-heavy but we are going to try to get through that.
