  1. Transmission and DriveLine Questions
    Relating to a original 56 wagon, 235 three speed. seems when a GM Nova 8.5 10 bolt is installed the driveshaft needs to be shortened 1.5"? I was gonna relocate the rear end 3/4 back but can't because of the gas tank so it's gotta go in the stock location. Is there anything I'm not thinking about?

    I recently purchased a 57 2-door wagon and the frame is more swiss cheese than I thought so I have to replace it. That leaves me with just a body and dash to start with. I need to save money at all costs without sacrificing a solid foundation. That being said I was thinking about retrofitting a...

    This is the first post - for my first restoration project - ever. A few weeks ago I purchased 1957 150 2-door wagon from a shop that didn't have time for it. They flipped it for the owner who had it sitting in a field. Being my first build and getting caught up in the fact that I had come across...

    Hey folks I got the 210 wagon out today and went to open the tailgate, but the T handle won't budge. I don't have a key to the rear lock so I don't believe its locked. Is there any way to open a tailgate to get to the problem, short of a "smoke wrench" (as my buddy calls his gas torch?!) Any...
