Re: 55 Chevy project
Nice! I've got a 56 210 2 door sedan that I got as a roller. It started life as a 6 cyl/3 speed car. It's a Tucson native with no rust. Now that I have it on the road, it's a hoot to drive. I won't say I did it on the cheap, but we love the car. It's got a 350/700R4 with 3:42 gears. I've done all the suspension, It's got Vintage Air, Dakota Digital gauges, Ididit tilt column, power windows and locks, cruise control........next on my list is all new glass, then interior. It was repainted 25/30 years ago. When I got it in '07, the clear on it was pealing......I have no plans to paint it. A friend of mine gave me a stick I put on the wing window that says "Yes, it is cool. No, I'm not going to paint it." I've got my 66 Chevelle with a 4 speed and this 56. I can park the 56 anywhere and not worry about it. It loves to run at 80 mph, runs cool, can get 20 mpg, and we drive it all over the southwest.
