What is a "gear bottom shifter"? I googled it, it doesn't know either. The wheels aren't w big deal, they are easy to change. Having to deal with the rocket scientist that wrote the ad is likely to be another story.

Stupid and arrogant, that's always a charming combination.

That's just another way of saying floor shifter.As is 3 gear = not a 2 speed powerglide and bottom gear=floor shifter.(do Ur research its a collectors Iteam !!!);)
I hope all they did was change the wheels as I've seen some funky additions to the front suspension to make those 30 inch type wheels driveable.:eek:

I figured that might have been what he meant. I don't see the point to using so much slang, if the goal is to sell the car, why not advertise it in a way that will attract the most positive attention.

Those wheels look like someone stole them off the sh_t wagon at the neighbor's dairy farm.

I not sure if I like or hate them on the car ....
they remind me of my youth when I was 8 yrs old
the Hay/Grain Wagon that I drove the pair of Horses with during the summer/fall,
that Dad owned

he would pull me out of school if he needed someone to drive the horses
while the men worked on the Wagon stacking the Hay/Grain Sheves

they look just like them as they were wooden spoked and with Steel Rims over the Round wood attached to the spokes

Yeah, Greg, same thing hit me. Those things looked the the wood-spoked wheels on the hay wagon my dad built from a 1929 Oldsmobile chassis. Dad pitched loose, shocked hay into the wagon and my sister and I tamped the load. We, however, pulled our wagon with a Farmall A, not horses. Good times these were, back in the 1950's.
