General Information

Name
Russ Fulwood
Year
56
Make
Chevy
Model
Nomad
Date: 2008
I've owned this car since 1974, and used it as my daily driver for many years. I restored it in 1980 and drove it while I worked on my 67 Corvette project car. When the Corvette was done, Ol Blue was parked. Ol Blue is now under going a Body off modification into what I hope will be a very nice street ride with some long road trips in the future. Ol blue name has been changed to MuskRat, because the interior smelled like a Musk Ox and the engine will be a injected 502 Rat.
Plans:
Morrison front clip
R&P power rack
Tremec TKO 600 5 speed
96 Corvette IRS
Budnik Ice or Cobalt rims 17X8 front 18X10 rear
Bucket seats
Vintage air
Rain Gear wipers
and a nice redo of the interior.

Date: 2019
Update: Because MuskRat sat neglected for many years I decided to treat him to a long overdo rebuild. Plans include:
Art Morrison chassis
Wilwood 13" brakes
427 cu in Big Block
4l80e transmission
Vintage Air
Rain gear wipers
Budnik G10 18x8 and 20x10 polished rims
Smoothed firewall
and much more
